Vans Warped tour returning toAustralia in December 2013

Blink 182’s set at the first stop on the Soundwave festival tour in Brisbane has come with an added bonus: The shock announcement that the Vans Warped tour will be returning to Australia in December 2013.

Soundwave boss AJ Maddah will team up with Warped founder Kevin Lyman to bring the festival back to Australia and has confirmed that the tour will travel to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and a couple of regional centres on the east coast. Perth will not be on the schedule. Although there are some similarities between Warped and Soundwave, Maddah says that the two festivals have different concepts: “Warped is about mayhem & DIY punk rock spirit [while] SW is about delivering a slick & orchestrated day of performances.” The Australian dates for Warped 2013 are expected to be announced in April or May.

While there’s no word yet on who will be making the journey to Australia for Warped later this year, the bill for the North American version of the festival could provide a few hints. The lineup which will tour America from June to August this year includes Reel Big Fish, The Used,Memphis May Fire, Black Veil Brides and Letlive plus many bands currently touring Australia with Soundwave including Bring Me the Horizon, Motion City Soundtrack, Amity Affliction, The Wonder Years and Sleeping With Sirens.

The Warped Tour began in 1995 and was one of the world’s first touring rock festivals. In January 1998 the tour visited Australia for the first time when Frontier Touring presented a lineup which included Pennywise, Frenzal Rhomb, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Porkers, 311, Blink 182, The Vandals, The Living End andBodyjar. The nine date tour of the east coast visited the Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour, Sydney, Ulladulla, Newcastle, Adelaide, Melbourne and Geelong.

The festival returned the following year with Pennywise, Frenzel Rhomb,Grinspoon, MxPx, The Porkers, Deftones, Unwritten Law, Front End Loader, Swingin Utters, Nancy Vandal, Hepcat, Cherry Poppin Daddies, Area 7 and more. Bad Religion and The Specials were also booked but were later replaced by Suicidal Tendencies and Less Than Jake.

Michael Chugg, who had worked on the tour while at Frontier Touring, also bought the tour to Australia with his own touring company in 2002 with a lineup that featured Pennywise, MxPx, The Vandals, New Found Glory, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Frenzal Rhomb, Eskimo Joe, 28 Days, Bodyjar, and Area 7.

Hard to top from yesterday by the sounds of things

yeah, sounds like it would require someone knifing someone else over and over again in the face, while the crowd stood around chanting "YOLO! YOLO!" to be worse...

My suggestions for Warped Tour:

NOFX, letlive., Architects, La Dispute, Evergreen Terrace, Misery Signals, At The Drive-In, Terror, Boysetsfire, Fireworks, Less Than Jake.

Yeah, that'd go alright.

crob

crob said on the 25th Feb, 2013

i wonder how much of this will eat into the soundwave lineup....

i found you could have removed a good chunk of this years lineup n most people wouldn't have notice

Also add Dowsing, Balance And Composure, Title Fight, Texas Is The Reason and Joie De Vivre.

tyler07

Texas is the Reason would be rather grand.

I do not want to see Brand New in any other format than me in the front row at The Tivoli.

price is looking good

jacegalvin

jacegalvin said on the 27th Feb, 2013

Hahah that's bullshit, add another $100 to it and that would be more believable.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 27th Feb, 2013

He'll say he forgot to add carbon tax and the actual price is $145.

gumbuoy

gumbuoy said on the 27th Feb, 2013

Maybe the lineup will just be really terrible. Area 7 to headline or something

crob

crob said on the 27th Feb, 2013

might be a come together style festival... 2-3 stages, mainly locals n only a few internationals

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 27th Feb, 2013

Hahahaha, fuck. There is no way in hell he's going to charge less than $150.

I could see it working, it's not like Warped really gets huge acts anymore.

Dexter Ramone

Dexter Ramone said on the 28th Feb, 2013

I'm truly hoping this is a $70 ticket. Bring some skaters and 3-4 internationals out; and boost the locals up across a few stages

p.s. bjw - How fucking good are Glocca Morra!

frenzal rhomb, nofx, bad religion, descendents, bodyjar, 50 lions, dropkick murphys, gimme gimmes,
sounds like a grand festival, none of this pop-punk crap

Dexter Ramone

Dexter Ramone said on the 11th Mar, 2013

Half the bands you've listed are pop punk...

voltroneyes

voltroneyes said on the 11th Mar, 2013

i think you will find that he was being facetious. i guess jokes are off limits...

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 11th Mar, 2013



Or maybe tone is just really difficult to convey through text, especially when you're speaking to people who don't know you.

voltroneyes

voltroneyes said on the 11th Mar, 2013

i thought his choice of bands made it obvious he was performing under the character "guy who is keen about warped tour returning but doesn't want any of that gay shit (but ironically enough is requesting other terible things)"

i thought it was an okay parody...

Oflick

Oflick said on the 11th Mar, 2013

I thought he was serious. I assumed that he was using pop punk to refer to bands like "Blink-182" and "Good Charlotte" without realising that the bands he listed were actually pop punk themselves.

voltroneyes

voltroneyes said on the 11th Mar, 2013

maybe it's time to introduce that punctuation mark that lets peeps know you're j/k!

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 11th Mar, 2013

[URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irony_mark#Irony_mark"]Already exists.

Or, use magenta and comic sans here. We started to do that a while ago but most people don't bother and newer users don't know about it obviously.

yeah, i know it exists! that is why i said "that punctuation mark".

also i was j/k! i believe using such a thing would be ridiculous!

A week or two after the lineup is announced.

If the line up is anything like the currently rumoured bands i might just give this a miss.

I can't see myself attending this. 5 years ago and I would be there in heart beat I'm sure, but I doubt they'll have an act I am that intersted in seeing to come close.

xAlbanyHCx

xAlbanyHCx said on the 10th May, 2013

no wa fixture :(
wiseheimer would be the perfect band for an aussie warped tour and it would be good to see the festival sticking to its roots by not including any slow emotional hardcore bands.

emmallynch

emmallynch said on the 15th May, 2013

ugh when do the tickets go on sale!?

bjw1

bjw1 said on the 26th May, 2013

lineup can't be far away- would love california x, daylight and real friends as internationals. Cant see them all happening (I think real friends are most likely of the three), but you never know with AJ.

emmallynch

emmallynch said on the 30th May, 2013

does anyone know how much the tickets will be ? and when they are on sale?
