Just a few days ago, the final lineup for the 2018 Vans Warped Tour presented by Journeys was revealed in a video from the festival, which can be found below. The final cross-country run will feature acts who have frequently played Warped Tour over the last 24 years as well as up-and-coming acts. Set to play are bands including Simple Plan, 3OH!3, Mayday Parade, The Maine, We The Kings, Reel Big Fish, Underoath, Grayscale, Tonight Alive, and Real Friends, among others.
Kicking off on June 21st in Pomona, CA and wrapping on August 5th in West Palm Beach, FL, the tour will feature newly named stages such as Mutant Red Dawn and Mutant White Lightningwhich will showcase the best in heavy and hardcore music. Attendees will also be introduced to the FEND Movement (Full Energy, No Drugs), launched in partnership with the Preventum Initiative, which aims to empower young people to make a stand against opiods. Other non-profits and educational workshops at the festival will include A Voice For The Innocent, American Red Cross, Hope For The Day, and To Write Love on Her Arms, to name a few.
“With more non-profits coming out there will be more options for our audience to hopefully get involved before, during, and after the tour. I am hoping that this last year encourages non-profits to partner with bands and for bands to partner with non-profits on their own events and tours once this summer is over.” – Sierra Lyman.
General admission tickets will be on sale March 8th. Early bird tickets and super fan bundles are on sale now. The first 500 tickets sold for each show will be the lowest price and include a digital download of the Official Vans Warped Tour 50-song compilation.
Back in March, the Vans Warped Tour announced the full lineup of artists performing at the festival this summer. Just a few weeks ago, Warped released another announcement, sharing the sponsors and attractions that concert-goers can expect to see!

This summer, fans will notice a slight change in stage names as Journeys will be taking over both main stages, renaming them to Journeys Left Foot Stage and Journeys Right Foot Stage. In addition to this, fans will also be introduced to the Monster Energy Party Zone which will feature side-by-side stages of non-stop heavy music from artists such as Atreyu, Every Time I Die, Motionless In White, The Color Morale, and Chelsea Grin.
In previous years, the Vans Warped Tour (presented by Journeys) lineup was always announced in portions, with new bands announced weekly prior to the tour starting. This year, the festival announced the full lineup at an event and live webcast earlier this week from Full Sail University’s Campus. Check out the full list of performers below!
