20 Bands to Check Out at the 20th Vans Warped Tour

Admit it: What It Is to Burn has gotten you through at least one bad breakup. Don't feel bad; we've all been there.

Four Year Strong
I once watched these guys hold their own on the same bill as Bad Religion and Rise Against, who I consider top-notch acts. They've got the goods.

Front Porch Step
It might take a bit of looking to find, but there's a really good acoustic stage, and Front Porch Step is its finest offering. Historically speaking its been shaded, so there's that too.

Icon For Hire
Paramore is too big to ever do Warped again, but this will help scratch the itch.

I Fight Dragons
The perfect name for a chiptune pop-rock band. You like big hooks sprinkled with Nintendo bleeps and bloops? You're going to love this.

The Absolute Punk forums are crazy for these guys, and since they're the most hardcore Warped Tour fanbase in existence I assume that bodes well for a good performance.

K. Flay
"Easy Fix" is one of the best songs that you probably haven't heard, so tab over to Spotify and look it up and feel bad you've waited so long to listen to it.

List continues on the next page.

They were on the bubble. Here's the write up;


I was in radio the first time I heard "Foreign Language." I nodded solemnly at the first line. I still love that song to this day.
