The Vans Warped Tour: For many it’s the highlight of one’s summer. The show to end all shows, where one gets to see all of their favorite bands in some of the nation’s biggest venues for a justifiable price. However, as many know, the tour made the decision to, like many tours, announce the lineup in its entirety in one announcement, as opposed to their tradition of weekly announcements.

For all of you anxiously awaiting the full lineup of the punk-rock summer camp’s 21st installment, you’ll be excited to know that the date is closer than you think. Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman confirmed the date via a fan’s question over Twitter last Wednesday night that the tour’s full lineup will be announced on Tuesday, March 22.

The tour recently announced their 3rd annual “Road to Warped Tour” show in Anchorage, Alaska on June 22nd – three days before the tour officially kicks off on June 24th in Dallas, Texas, with scheduled performances from Sum 41, Sleeping with Sirens, Reel Big Fish, Crown the Empire, State Champs and more. However, there is no word if any of the bands will play the full festival.
