Vans Warped Tour lineup: All Time Low, Taking Back Sunday, New Found Glory, Machine Gun Kelly lead St. Petersburg date
We've been waiting patiently for a handy-dandy list of all the bands coming to Vinoy Waterfront Park for the Vans Warped Tour's annual date in St. Petersburg on July 29. Because Warped's lineup varies by date, it's not totally accurate to say ALL the headliners will be there.
But since this site is no help, we started compiling a list by looking at each individual artist's Warped itinerary. The verdict: St. Pete fans should be pretty happy.
Among the biggest bands who will be part of the St. Petersburg Warped Tour lineup: New Found Glory, Taking Back Sunday, We The Kings, Breathe Carolina, All Time Low, Streetlight Manifesto, Mayday Parade, Senses Fail, Bayside, Miss May I, Yellowcard, Pierce the Veil, Four Year Strong and rapper Machine Gun Kelly, above, who stole the show at Wild Splash 2012, and will be returning to St. Pete for the first time since his arrest following a bar brawl in January.
Other notable names on the bill: Of Mice and Men, Falling In Reverse, Sleeping With Sirens, Transit, blessthefall, Motionless In White, Man Overboard, Memphis May Fire, Chelsea Grin, Every Time I Die, I Fight Dragons, iwrestledabearonce, Polar Bear Club, Sick of Sarah, the Constellations and Title Fight. That's an incomplete lineup, but it's a pretty good start.
Some of the notable artists who will NOT be part of the St. Petersburg stop include Rise Against, The Used, You Me at Six and Hyro da Hero.
Tickets to Warped 2012 go onsale to the general public on April 7, but you can get a pre-sale ticket starting today (3/30) for the incredible price of $21.99, which includes a collectible ticket, VIP pass and compilation CD.
