  5. says

    OMG this is gonn abe my first Warped tour ever. I’m so excited. I can’t wait to see Paramore again. They are an awesome band to see live. Say Anything is gonna ROCK! It suck I’ll miss AAR. The Rejects are the best. At least i’ll get to see Paramore again. Can’t wait till July 2.

    This lineup is kind of weak.
    but there are some decent bands.

    wish killswitch engage was playing :\

  8. HANNAH-roo TM says

    wow…this fuckin lineup sucks ass
    all the bands that are going are sooo overrated now…but still good
    but come on…. all american rejects? you have got to be fuckin kidding me….
    where is all the good metal, screamo, and mostly the good old school punk rock….
    o well it will still be fun…
    I still be excited….just could get some better bands…..
    everything seems to be too mellow for Warped Tour
    its a bummer

  9. saosin_jake says

    well this is a pretty shitty line up but i have to go see sky eats airplane and cobra starship. I really think saosin, sksk, trs, and kill hannah should have gone though…

    but yeah Gch sucks so much dick it’s not even funny

  10. kitty says

    this lineup sucks ass. 2004, 2005, those were good years. every year its a couple of good new bands, but then a bunch of other random crap. whatever happened to this being a punk show?
    not that im complaining, because i love some of these new bands a lot. its just sad that the real good bands arent there and some random emo shits are on the list.

  11. Rachel says

    OMFG!i’ve been dying to go to Warped Tour since like 2005.I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE COBRA STARSHIP AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!i saw them on their recent tour and I Love them so much!!!it’s gonna be so fucking rad!i’m dying to see The Academy Is… too!

  12. Stack says

    OMG i want to go so badly MADINA LAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Alesansa The Academy Is… and so many god damn more that i want to see. And my lil Above All Else boys are so getting in. But i have to live in Australia =[ =[ =[

  13. Wait, What!?!?! says

    Three Bands worth my time.
    The Human Abstract

    Not a bad lineup, however, PTW and Throwdown should have been on this years also.
    Always next year

  14. mollydoll says

    yay im excited!! its not the best, but warped tour is always gonna have a variety and every year kevin’s not gonna put the same bands on.he has to ask them, and sometimes other bands are on their own tour…….but i love paramore!!!!!!!! <3

  15. Andy says

    Not a bad lineup. I’m pretty stoked about protest the hero and As I lay Dying!!! August Burns Red is the shit.. Absolutely the best on the lineup. ABR representin Lancaster County baby!!!!

  16. Tiffany says

    wtf?!?! no spill canvas?
    this is the worst line up in the history of warped tour.
    I’m more than disappointed!

  17. Triangulum says

    Damn, Warped Tour gets shittier every year. Thanks for the massive amount of emo bands, Vans.

  18. says

    uhh. im kinda disappointed by this line-up. last years was SO AMAZING! i mean get like circa survive, chiodos, killswitch, our last night, and like coheed again and ill be fine..

    please add some more bands. if circa plays i’ll go JUST to see them.

    this is disappointing=[

  19. Nessa says

    OK so what’s with all these emo bands? Warped tour sucks this year!!! there should be more punk! only a few bands are good but for the most part it’s an emo fest =(
    c’mon Vans!

  20. Joe says

    This line-up is shit compared to 98-02 line-ups. Emo bands as far as the eye can see. Only bands up there I would pay to see are Reel Big Fish Pennywise and Bouncing Souls, and two of them aren’t making Miami show appearances. Damn, why did I have to miss than NOFX show in Orlando =/.

  21. bornofosiris1 says

    This has got to be the worst warped line up yet.
    Only good bands are

    Last years line up was amazing. (:
    I rather spend the 32$ on something else, ugh. I’m so disappointed. :/


  23. Good Luck says

    WTF happened to Warped??? I haven’t gone in a couple of years and now I see why!! Look at this GARBAGE line up, yes GARBAGE. Maybe 4 decent acts and the rest is commercialized, cookie cutter, bubble gum GARBAGE!!!!!! Agree or disagree it’s your right. Paramore sux – we are broken – Cry me a river. Please bring back some real punk bands or how about some Ska. At least they brought in some Psycho-Billy, Horrorpops for you retards who don’t know.
    Good luck at the show you sheep – Save your money and by some real music.

  24. trexy says

    what the hell happened to warped tour?
    they need to change the name, seriously.
    What happened to the punk bands?

  25. says

    so upset.
    paramores not commnig to mass. =X
    and theres some other pretty great bands tho
    hope i can go
    it’d be my first warped tour =]
    does anyone know how much tickets are going for ?

  26. KylatheNFGfan says

    this lineup absolutely sucks
    last year’s was SOOOOO much better
    and where the hell is New Found Glory?
    don’t they come every year?
    what happened to that?

  27. Jasmine says

    i wanted the spill canvas bad. :[
    and escape the fate
    and panic!
    and you me and everyone we know
    thank freaking God mayday parade is going to be there.
    im excited for them :]

  28. chris says

    personally, i think this lineup kick major ass. but, i can see why some wouldnt like it. true, there arent many old-school punk bands on the list, but you have to take into account that as the years start to shift, there are more newer bands jumping on the emo/screamo/metalcore/indie bandwagons than the hardcore punk one.

  29. says

    warped tour is going to be so much fun this year no matter what anyone feels what they have to say is important enough to post up.

    oh yea you punk bastards that think your all tight and right, so gay..

    like cock in my ass gay…

    get over yourselves you smelly dirty scumm. There is punk influence in everything, why cant you stop being stubborn and open your mind a little. you guys are parasites.Cock breathed and analy leaking. im glad your not going to these warped tours. so i dont have to see or smell you assholes ever. youre the garbage. :] just discover some new music and learn to love the shit these bands work hard on, its worth hearing… judgmental assholes.

    yay A Day To Remember,
    Angels and Airwaves,
    Classic Crime,
    All Time Low,
    Angels And Airwaves,
    August Burns Red,
    Bring Me The Horizon,
    Classic Crime,

  30. dustin25 says

    ill be in the beer tent till all that remains and every time i die go on, have fun with the boy bands kids

  31. why give my name? says

    OMFG amazing line up for all those saying it sucks cuz its all emo bands you are an autistic down syndrome infant the line up is fucking amazing

  32. Simz says

    WTF ???

    It’s not supposed to be a punk show ???

    Where are the Nofx, Anti-flag, millencolin, mxpx and all those great band like in the 2004-2005-2006 edition ????

  33. liz says

    this is quite possibly the worst warped list, ever. the last few years were good, but ’08 is just throughly disappointing. don’t get me wrong, they are all at least decent bands, i would have just liked to seen some of the “usual” bands come back, such as underoath, chiodos, escape the fate, the spill canvas, and killswitch. but, it will be a good time anyway.

    to other haters: at least give these bands you presume are shitty a chance, they may surprise you. :]]

  34. Emily says

    Okay, so maybe the bands this year are more ’emo’ than punk, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any good bands playing.

    All Time Low
    Forever the Sickest Kids
    Jack’s Mannequin
    Madina Lake
    Mayday Parade
    Norma Jean
    Relient K
    Say Anything
    Story of the Year
    The Academy Is…
    The Audition
    The Maine
    We the Kings

    They are all awesome, plus some other are pretty good, at least in my opinion.

    I am just fucking pissed that All Time Low and Paramore won’t be playing at the Atlanta show. I mean, i plan on driving all the way from around Nashville to go to my first Warped Tour, and two of my favorite bands won’t be playing. But hopefully seeing FF5,Mayday Parade,the Maine,Story of the Year,Relient K, and Forever the Sickest Kids will make it worth it.

    But I would also love it if bands like Silverstein,Underoath,Chiodos,the Spill Canvas,etc. were going to be there. That would make it even better, though.

  35. Jalanis says

    All Time Low
    Bring Me the Horizon
    Cinematic Sunrise
    Cobra Starship
    Every Avenue
    Forever the Sickest Kids
    From First to Last
    Madina Lake
    Norma Jean
    Sky Eats Airplane
    The Devil Wears Prada

    i wish Drop dead gorgeous was there
    and underoath.

  36. Joseph Michael Tremblay says

    I’m pretty sure this lineup is the weakest piece of shit that Vans Warped Tour has ever put on..

    Mayhem Fest > Vans Warped tour

    P.S. You hXc dance and i hate you.

  37. victoria says

    This line up sucks.
    ETID, AILD, Evergreen Terrence, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Norma Jean, and PTH are the only bands worth seeing; however When the show comes around to my town half of them will not be on anymore. So i get suck with shitty bands like all time low. The only good thing is paramore wont be in my town-needless to say they suck ass. When did warped tour start allowing shitty power pop bands on? They just waste space for better bands.

  38. Irvin says

    WTF atreyu iznt going, they like HAVE to go, HAVE TO GO!!!!! they like so better get’em

  39. Adam says

    What a horrible lineup. Vans Warped Tour used to be a festival celebrating the music that accompanied the extreme sports that Vans sponsored(i.e. skate punk, punk, ska, etc) and now it’s turned into an overload of emo, pop punk crap. Pennywise, Rise Against, Bouncing Souls, Reel Big Fish, then game over.

    Even last year(which I thought was a lacking lineup) they were able to get Bad Religion, Agent Orange, Sum 41, Flogging Molly, Pepper, Buck-o-Nine, Mustard Plug, The Toasters, Big D and the Kids table, Real McKenzies, along with Pennywise, who returns this year.

    Come on Vans, stick to your roots, and pick it up next year.

  40. Paige says

    This Warped will be amazing but i do agree what happend to the punk bands???
    I do wish there were goiing to be some there to even out the emo!! lol


  41. brittany says

    what a terrible terrible line up not very many good bands…. ya’ll could have had a much much better line up… im not even gonna waste my time and money maybe next year will be better… sorry but you people need to open your eyes this is a terrible lineup

  42. drew says

    this lineup sucks major ass! last year was way fucking better! wat happened to all the hardcore bands! UHHH dumb as hell

  43. greg says

    im gonna miss friggen bouncing souls, bedouin soundclash, and pennywise. at least i get me some reel big fish. aggrolites, against me, beat union, family force 5, street dogs, horrorpops, and oreskaband are good to.

  44. marina says

    GREAT bands!
    i wish i could go.
    i love like half of them.
    oh and JET LAG GEMINI will be touring also but only for certain dates. I love them :]

  45. Amber skye. says

    This line up isnt that bad.
    Im goinnggg.
    Should be funn.

    and all you guys who are saying”this line up sucks”
    Shut up.
    If it sucks so bad,
    then dont go.

  46. dave says

    i dont know why atr, norma jean, as i lay dying, everytime i die would even waste their time with this shit…pathedic

  47. ~Super ninja Gurl~ says

    I love all american rejects and Angels and airwaves and Story of the Year!!1 Heck Ya!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. David says

    ehh… i liked last years a lot better, i’lle go anyways though to see:
    Against me! (dropping “!” next album i heard)
    Reel big fish
    academy is
    SAY ANYTHING (idc if hes bipolar and not my religion πŸ˜› )
    Sky eats airplane

    but w/e happened to some of the guys last year:

    put up “Stars” and i’lle go no matter what πŸ˜›

    and i’m sorry but some of the people on there just dont deserve it. stop sucking up to all the pop bands and make the list yourself instead of listening to little kids. DIY man, DIY forever.

  49. says

    wow…. not one of the bands i watched last year is returning
    not underoath, HH, sksk, etc..

    it will be fun no matter what so idc really

  50. XxXxSiennaxXxX says

    OMG OMG OMG THIS IS FUCKING AWESOME!!! I CAN’T WAIT!!! I still wish The Medic Droid were Coming, but thats fine…

  51. says

    warped tour has always booked bands they thought were mainstream, and that’s all they’re trying to do. but it’s not going to be a good year for them, definatly not.

    save 160 more dollars and find a lalapalooza near you! :)

  52. Bryan says

    Reel Big Fish!
    Haha, bet most of you dont care for them, but their my favorite band on there. Suck it bitches.

  53. Spooky says

    Wow this year isn’t very solid. Last year seemed like a last gasp of Vans former glory. I’d love for bands like Hot Water Music, Bouncing Souls, Bad Religion, Propagandhi, Good Riddance, Lagwagon, etc… to play again. Don’t get me wrong there are some good bands but not to many. I totally understand progressing from the Punk of the old days but at least progress to good indie bands like Minus the Bear, Circa (who was great last year), Coheed (also great last year), me without You, As Cities Burn, Alexisonfire, Thrice, Thursday, Sparta, Chiodos, The Fall of Troy… just to name a few!

  54. billyBADAZZ tm says

    why dont you guys have ICP(INSANE CLOWN POSSE) playing this year? i am sooooo sad. they are my fav.

  55. LameSauce says

    Lame, no bands want to cross the border to toronto, so they all just start in buffalo. i wish bmth and ABR were playing in TO. Not to mention THA, ATR, and AILD. good lineup, just no good bands going to TO

  56. What the...? says

    UGHHH! not too many good bands here besides rise against, the academy is…, relient k, fftl, and paramore, who btw is only coming for a frickin week! seriously? come on. i want bands like aiden, the used, and underoath. where’s New Found Glory??? Bad Religion??? total let down but i’m still gonna go because it’s always a good time and i would buy way more expensive tickets to go see all the bands i like at a real concert anyways… really disappointed though… please go back to punk and leave these emo sissys behind!

  57. jack mehalve says

    gay gay gayest gayer i miss the 90’s line ups these publishest really are killing me, if a band sucks u can not make them better just by throwing them on the warped tour, also that seems to be all the reqirements u need these days suck balls and hey u got yourself a record deal, gag for those of u who can’t wait to see this garbage if u where a little older im sure u would c it my way

  58. Emilyyy says

    yess!!! Story of the year and angels and airwaves!!!! + anberlin<33 awesomeeee

  59. befff says

    damnn this is the best lineup ive seen in a couple of years!!! im so fucking excited. norma jean, rise against, bring me the horizon. ftw 2008

  60. Ivan says

    fuck warped tour, it fucking blow, its all emo bullshit when it WAS and STILL should be punk, there are only 3 or 4 good bands and they are leaving warped tour cause of the gay emo, screamo, metal faggot ass shit that make warped gay as hell

  61. teresa says

    dude Angels & Airwaves! The Higher! All Time Low!
    this lineup kicks ass
    i wanna go soo bad, sucks that im broke

  62. Nick says

    millencolin no,bad religion no,anti-flag no,NOFX no,MxPx no,Lagwagon no,Less than Jake no….hmm next year they’re gonna tell us that madonna will sing….

  63. Lisa says

    whats the deal with this lineup.
    …warped ’08, definitely NOT worth the gas money.

    what a disappointment.

  64. says

    I could have gone but it’s really not worth it. -.-
    To be listening to shitty bands the whole time and only really enjoying 3 of them.

  65. taryn says

    im pretty sure no one knows how fucking pissed i am that i cant go… cuz im gonna be in fucking pennsylvania… and living in stupid fucking upstate ny there are hardly any shows because i live in the middle of fucking nowhere and GRRR…. i mean, i guess it is kind of a sucky lineup. To the person who wanted Anti-Flag… im seriously standing by your side. But still… I just wish I could go… grrr. enough complaining. to all the people that im envious of… dont tell me how it was when you get back… i just might end up kicking you in the face. =]]

  66. taryn says

    oh and one more thing… NOFX IS PRETTY MUCH THE GREATEST BAND EVERRRR… but no, people dont know that these days cuz all they listen to now is pop-rock which is pretty much PUSSY BANDS. so there. [but i still wish i could go… cuz even if everything sucks [descendents song] warped tour is warped tour and its gonna be fun either way…. ahhhhhhhh this is so fucking annoying]

  67. taryn says

    and another thing… there are punks and wish-they-could-be-punks. now it’s a pretty simple answer if i asked the question of “what would seven eighths of these bands classify as?”
    here’s a small list of the bands i was hoping for:::
    bad religion
    good riddance
    rise against [thanks for them, at least]
    the casualties
    bouncing souls [thanks for them, too]
    the beatsteaks
    strike anywhere
    tiger army
    screw 32
    strung out

    and i know people are all “everything has a little bit of punk in it…” and whatever… but really… warped should be the real stuff… true Punx Unite [the casualies song]. it shouldn’t be some make-believe shit that just TRIES to sum up and be everything that real punk is… and its hard for them to do that because they dont have it in their hearts, their minds, their souls, their vocal chords, their beats, their strums. [very poetic, i know] bands cant just automatically change to that sort of genre, i guess i could call it… but it isn’t really a genre. its a way of life. its a style, a culture. maybe it could even be classified as a religion. hmmm… i dont know. anyway… bands cant just change to it like THAT with a snap of their fingers. they have to believe in it… have to really become what they want to be…

    and sense im sounding like a preacher now… that’s my opinion. you can agree or disagree, i dont really give a shit. you just need to understand, thats all.

  68. haley says

    this sucks ass.
    i missed paramore. i havent seen them since warped ’05.
    but still.
    i guess this could be a worse line up…
    no panic?
    no ETF?

  69. Dan says

    Warped Tour Officially Sux. Only one good band; Rise Against. All others are stupid emo/screamo shit… Bring back the Rock FUCKERS!

  70. Gaby says

    Dude. I wish underoath would be going but at least chiodos and Greeley estates are there for detroit!
    I’m satisfied!!
    (mmm…..greeley estates lead singer!!!!!!!hot stuff)

  71. seth says

    i forgot the warped our date canyou buy tickets at the door or are they more i need to now like right now

  72. Rae! says

    okayyy. so 3oh!3 is gunna be there which means its officially going to KICK ASS!!!! [[punkbitch]] yeah!


  73. Rae! says

    okayyy. so 3oh!3 is gunna be there which means its officially going to KICK ASS!!!! [[punkbitch]] yeah!


  74. ANONYMOUS. says

    Eh, this year’s lineup is okay I guess. I won’t be able to see paramore (which sucks a bit), but there are still some really awesome bands here.

    By the way, I was backreading some of theose comments before me and this is starting to sound like a riot. Music is expression (and yes I know how cliche that sounds). You assholes just don’t realize that the only reason that you’re on this page is because you love music just like every other person that is here too.

  75. me says

    The lineups as good as its gonna get for now abd we can’t change it so stop complaining and enjoy the good bands. Mxpx is at tomfest btw

  76. Trix says

    OMG this is going to be the BESTT
    ive never been to one but this one im going to definetly i live in michigan and i will see ALL TIME LOW and all the others THERE all GREAT BANDS i cant wait!!=]]
