It’s hard to believe that the Vans Warped Tour turns 22 this year, isn’t it? Since 1995, the punk rock summer camp has been stomping through sports arenas and parking lots, bringing a variety of punk, metal, pop-rock and everything in between to the young adult masses. Last night, the tour announced the complete lineup for the tour’s 22nd installment and, boy, it’s a doozy.

Highlights of this year’s festival include the first extended United States run from Sum 41, whose appearance this year will mark their first U.S. tour since 2012, and first extensive run on Warped Tour since 2010. Other blasts from the past include the first Warped Tour appearances from Orange County, California metalcore giants Atreyu and pop-punk heavyweights Good Charlotte since their respective reunions. Heavy metal juggernauts Bullet for My Valentine will also make their first stint on Warped in over a decade.

As for the tour’s full duration, however, there’s still plenty to get excited about. Those in both the old and new schools of pop-punk will be delighted to see that New Found Glory, Yellowcard, Four Year Strong, The Story So Far, Real Friends and State Champs are all co-headlining this year’s Main Stage. Pop-rockers will also feel right at home when they see their beloved Mayday ParadeThe Maine, We the Kings and Set It Off all performing this summer. Not only that, but even those who grew up in the tour’s earlier years will have plenty to get pumped for, with Less Than Jake, Reel Big Fish and Pepper (select dates) all playing this summer!
