You heard that Taking Back Sunday and The Used are heading out on tour together? Oh, you really want to go? We have a pair of tickets to give out for each of the dates below. Now you’re psyched. We’ve spent quite a bit of time with these bands on the Vans Warped Tour in the past, and with this year being the Warped Tour’s 20th anniversary it’s a perfect time to reminisce… Like that time we caught up with Taking Back Sunday in Denver, or talked to The Used about the first time they ever played the tour. Email us at vanscontest@gmail.com with the city of the show you want to go to as the subject line. We’ll draw one winner per show & you and a friend will be added to the guest list. Winners will be chosen and notified by email on 3/1/14. Good luck!

The 2013 Vans Warped Tour kickoff party was last night in LA and it was a fun night full of touring friends and lots of great surprises on stage. The girls really stole the show last night with a mix of acoustic and full band sets from Charlotte Sometimes, Dia Frampton, Echosmith, Gin Wigmore, and Juliet Simms. We’ve known most of the girls from tours past but our new favorite find from the evening was Gin Wigmore. Check out her ridiculously fun video for Man Like That. Can’t wait to catch up with her on this summer’s tour. Photos by Rachel Clare-amanda

The Vans crew have been hanging out at Warped Tour 2012, checking out some killer sets from Anti-Flag, Mike Herrera (MxPx/Tumbledown), Taking Back Sunday, and so SO many more.

The lineup is fantastic, and the new Acoustic Basement is the perfect place to get out of the sun and enjoy some music from all sorts of favorites. You never know who might pop in for a special performance, like Joey Briggs, Tess Dunn, or Chris #2 and Justin Sane from Anti-Flag.

Do you have to be of a certin age to go to the Warped Tour?

Anonymous

Nope! Warped is an all-ages festival, and everyone is welcome. You can even drop your parents off at the Reverse Daycare Tent, if they need a break while you’re watching all of your favorite bands!

We’ve learned to mark the seasons by tours, rather than solstices and equinoxes and all the normal stuff. That being said, summer officially begins with the kick off of the Vans Warped Tour in Salt Lake City tomorrow! 
Amanda will be bringing video updates and a ton of fun photos from the road, so be sure to keep an eye on the Vans Girls page. And don’t forget to stop by the Vans booth if your shoes go missing in the crowd, or you need a snazzy new t-shirt once yours becomes a sweaty mess. Get a sneak peek of this year’s merch right here.
