You can find out more information on what you can and cannot bring into the festival at the Vans Warped Tour website, vanswarpedtour.com

There’s more stages than I ever remember seeing this year! With all these stages comes many diverse artists for fans with various music tastes. There are 6 stages: Journey’s Left & Right Foot(s? Feet?), Mutant Red Dawn & Mutant White Lightning, owly.fm, and the Full Sail Stage where the Local Lineup will perform.

With all that being said, here’s a guide to Vans Warped Tour 2018 artists!

Journey’s Left Foot

3OH!3

I have to admit, 3OH!3 is a guilty pleasure of mine. Their 2008 single “Don’t Trust Me” was iconic with lines like “Tell your boyfriend if he says he’s got beef, that I’m a vegetarian…” They went on to have 2 more songs playing on pop stations nationwide and worked with pop artists Ke$ha and Katy Perry.

Latest Album: Night Sports May 2016

RIYL: Cobra Starship, Mike Posner

 

Issues

Issues is one of those bands that you can’t grow tired of seeing live.

Latest Album: Headspace May 2016

RIYL: Woe Is Me, Crown The Empire

 

Knuckle Puck

Knuckle Puck is a Pop Punk band from Chicago, IL.

Latest Album: Shapeshifter October 2017

RIYL: State Champs, Neck Deep, Real Friends

 

Mayday Parade

The 2012 emo in me is always going to love everything Mayday Parade does. Sunnyland is one of my personal favorite new albums this year.

Latest Album: Sunnyland June 2018

RIYL: All Time Low, Pierce The Veil, A Day to Remember

 

Pennywise

Pennywise is a Punk music staple. Formed in 1988 and named after the clown from Stephen King’s novel It, these guys have been non-stop for 30 years now! They have over a dozen albums and they’ve been putting out a new album every-other-year for almost a decade and show no signs of stopping. Over the years, they’ve built up a huge fan base.

Latest Album: Never Gonna Die April 2018

RIYL: NOFX, Bad Religion, Rancid, The Offspring

 

State Champs

State Champs just released their newest album Living Proof, back in June so I can only hope they’ll perform my personal favorite song off of it, Crystal Ball. We had the pleasure of seeing them at Self Help Fest 2017 and know that, with the energy of Derek DiScanio’s vocals, it’s going to be a great show.

Latest Album: Living Proof June 2018

RIYL: Neck Deep, Knuckle Puck, The Story So Far, Real Friends

 

Reel Big Fish

Reel Big Fish is a Ska-Punk band that formed in 1991 and have released almost two dozen albums. While they haven’t released new music in a few years, they’ve been keeping busy on loads of festivals. A band as energetic and entertaining as this belongs on stage and they’re an absolute pleasure to watch and listen to.

Latest Album: Happy Skalidays December 2014

RIYL: Less Than Jake, Streetlight Manifesto

 

Waterparks

Formed in 2011, Waterparks has been working their way up for a few years now, really taking off in 2016. Their sophomore full-length album, Entertainment, was released in January 2018 and songs “Blonde” and “Lucky People” show exactly why they’re gaining so much popularity in the Pop Punk and Pop Rock music scene.

Latest Album: Entertainment January 2018

RIYL: Tonight Alive, All Time Low, Sleeping With Sirens

 

Journey’s Right Foot

Real Friends

Real Friends were one of my highlights from Self Help Fest 2017 and I’m thrilled to see them on Warped Tour’s 2018, though it’s not the first time. They’ve been doing Warped Tour for a few years and killing it every time.

Latest Album: The Home Inside My Head May 2016

RIYL: State Champs, Neck Deep,The Wonder Years

 

Movements

Movements formed in 2015 and they’ve done very well for themselves in the past 3 years. Their 2017 album, Feel Something, really did make their audience do just that.

Latest Album: Feel Something October 2017

RIYL: Balance and Composure, Modern Baseball, Title Fight, Senses Fail

 

The Maine

This Arizona band has been putting out Pop Punk and Emo Pop music since 2007.

Latest Album: Little Lovely April 2017

RIYL: Mayday Parade, A Rocket to the Moon, Boys Like Girls, Forever the Sickest Kids

 

Less Than Jake

Less Than Jake have been around since 1992 and they never give a boring performance. We got to see these guys at Self Help Fest 2017 and had the time our lives enjoying the energy these guys bring combined with the Ska-Punk style that they’ve been perfecting for over 20 years.

Latest Album: Sound the Alarm February 2017

RIYL: Reel Big Fish

 

Simple Plan

The 2008 emo in me, she’s a little different, can’t wait to see Simple Plan on stage again! This Canadian rock band started gaining traction in 1999 and have been on Warped Tour 10 years. One of their most popular songs, “Perfect”, is one that will stick with me forever.

Latest Album: Taking One for the Team February 2016

RIYL: Green Day, Sum 41, Blink-182

 

Tonight Alive

Tonight Alive is an Australian rock band that’s been around since 2008. Their music was featured in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, in 2014. When I think of Tonight Alive, though, I’m always reminded of the awesome hair colors that singer Jenna McDougall has rocked over the past decade!

Latest Album: Limitless March 2016

RIYL: We Are the In Crowd, PVRIS, Paramore

 

We The Kings

I think it’s safe to say, We The Kings will always be known for their 2007 platinum single, “Check Yes Juliet”. If that was a little old for you, then you might recognize their 2013 song, “Sad Song” which surprised a lot of fans by ending up back on pop radio nationwide.
