Photos: 2013 Warped Tour artists to watch, including Chiodos, Sleeping With Sirens, Wallpaper., Gin Wigmore and more



If you’re going to this year’s Vans Warped Tour, leave the Mohawk and studded leather jacket at home.

Yes, this year’s tour, which stops in St. Petersburg’s Vinoy Park on Friday, has plenty of thrashy metal and punk bands on the bill, but you’re also just as likely to spot a DJ, rapper, folkie or pop singer — remember, it wasn’t so long ago that Katy Perry did a summer on Warped.

With more than 90 artists on nine stages, it can be tough to know who to see and who to skip — especially since performance times for each date aren’t announced until that morning. But whether you like your Warped old-school or new-school, we’ve picked out 20 artists you won’t want to miss. Check out a slideshow by clicking on the headline of this post.
