VANS WARPED TOUR: Pre-Sale Begins Today, March 30

Renowned for bringing skate/punk/action sports and youth culture to the forefront on a global scale, the Vans Warped Tour® is calling and summer is here…

The VANS WARPED TOUR--a mix of hotly-tipped and established artists--continues to be the most eclectic traveling festival tour on the planet featuring rock, punk, pop, hip-hop and rap, metal, indie rock, electronic, alt-country, folk-punk, dubstep, reggae and rockabilly.

Last night (Thursday, March 29), the VANS WARPED TOUR kick-off party and press conference was held at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles. VANS WARPED TOUR artists and friends joined tour founder Kevin Lyman and Steve Van Doren of Vans to celebrate. Fans were treated to a screening of the new tour documentary film No Room For Rockstars (from Stacy Peralta and the producers of Dogtown & Z-boys, www.noroomforrockstars.com) and enjoyed live performances from Forever Came Calling (the group featured in the film), Falling In Reverse, Matt Toka, Dead Sara as well as special performances from tour veterans Yellowcard (acoustic) and The Used. "The energy at the 18th annual Vans Warped Tour Kick-Off Party was amazing," said founder Kevin Lyman. "All signs point to a great summer to come in 2012."

Beginning today, Friday, March 30 (10:00am PT) festival goers can purchase tickets via the exclusive, lower-priced pre-sale: http://media.musictoday.com/ticketing/WarpedTour/splash.html. To keep the festival at a great value, pre-sale package prices are $21.99 and include commemorative 3D ticket--which also serves as a jump-the-line early entry pass--a Vans Warped Tour 2012 compilation CD and a 25-cent donation to the Unite the United charity and all service fees. Only a limited number of pre-sale tickets are available per city and once they sell-out, they’re gone. The general on-sale will begin April 7. Go to www.vanswarpedtour.com.
