After a 13 year long absence the Vans Warped Tour returns to the UK in style, boasting a line up and a day packed full of punk rock, skate, art and more.
Not since 1999’s Reading and Leeds festivals has the tour been here in the UK, a tour that is famous across America for not only breaking up-and-coming acts but also showcasing some of the biggest names in the punk rock music industry. This year’s festival will be hitting North London’s Alexandra Palace and will see performances by Lost Prophets and Bring Me the Horizon as well as old school favourites (casting my mind back to my 13 year old skater days) New Found Glory.
As well as many many more acts playing live on the day across various stages, the tour will host the UK Vert Skate Championships, an artist merch village and non-profit displays and signing sessions. For anyone interested in heading down to the event, tickets are still available online from the Vans Warped Tour website.
