One of the longest standing and most popular annual summer festivals is the Vans Warped Tour. Hitting over 30 cities during the course of two months, the Vans Warped Tour traditionally features over 75 bands including some of the top underground acts in the pop, punk and rock genres.
The 2013 Warped Tour hit Southern California twice - once in Ventura, CA and a second time in Pomona - and featured a strong line-up topped by Sleeping With Sirens, We Came As Romans, Motion City Soundtrack, The Wonder Years, Bring Me The Horizon, Reel Big Fish, Crown The Empire, The Story So Far and Hawthorne Heights. The 2014 Warped Tour dates and preliminary lineup have been recently announced, with the festival again stopping at Pomona (June 20th, 2014) and Ventura (June 22nd, 2014) and bands including Saves the Day, Mayday Parade and The Ghost Inside set to perform.
