Vans Warped Tour: The End of an Era

Vans Warped Tours Swan Song Sails into Atlantic City for two days filled with lots of amazing musical performances by over 65 bands including Blink 182, 311, Bad Religion, Taking Back Sunday and The Used, to name just a few. Other attractions include skate demos with top skaters who have hit the vert ramp over Warped’s 25 year history, extreme Freestyle Moto Cross jumps and stunts that blew Eminem’s mind back in 1998, a final Warped smackdown with some wrestling (will we see Kevin Lyman in the ring?), a Warped Museum curated by rock photographer Lisa Johnson which will exhibit art inspired by the tour, and a special for Atlantic City, making his first appearance since the 2000 tour, David “The Bullet” Smith will return for a human cannonball launch as epic as the tour’s history.

The festival kicks off at 12 noon on Saturday June 29th on the beach in Atlantic City and goes until approximately 10pm. This will be the same timing and location for day two on Sunday June 29th. The stage will be set up near the Pier Shops next to Caesers Casino Hotel. And entrances will be located along Missouri, St. James and New York Ave.

The weather looks to be perfect for a weekend on the beach. Unlike the last 19 years, where the tour stops were in parking lots and it felt like you were melting on the pavement, this year you can take a dip in the ocean to cool off.
