Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman had it all set up. With 86 bands already announced, the tour was all set to announce its headliners at a kick-off party for the tour tonight in Brooklyn. They had a tech guy go into YouTube on Wednesday night to set up the announcement, and while it was only open to the public for less than a minute and a half, 11 people accessed the unsecured announcement. Tat’s all it took to spread all over the Internet. So let Metal Insider be the last to tell you that A Day To Remember, The Devil Wears Prada, August Burns Red, Against Me!, Attack Attack!, 3Oh!3, and Gym Class Heroes will be headlining the tour this year.
Those headliners join a roster that also includes metal/hardcore leaning bands like D.R.U.G.S., Eyes Set To Kill, Winds of Plague, and Black Veil Brides, and The Acacia Strain. Not a terrible roster, especially given how inexpensive the show is. The tour kicks off on June 24 in Dallas Texas.
