4991

We’re not even to December 25 yet, but for tens of thousands of music fans nationwide, today was Christmas Day, as the Warped Tour confirmed its return for 2016, marking the 22nd straight year Kevin Lyman and a pack of 100-plus bands will circle the country. Bands will begin being announced in March, marking a change from previous years where lineups started trickling out around this time.

The tour has changed its routing somewhat from previous years, as well, going from 39 dates in 2015 to 41 dates in 2016: Added are stops in New Orleans, Boise, Idaho, and Syracuse, New York, as well as a stop in Los Angeles proper, as opposed to Pomona, California. Of course, with additions come deletions: Ventura, California, has been put to pasture, as has Toronto, causing both Californians and Canadians appropriate amounts of grief.
