Now in its sixteenth year, the Vans Warped Tour is showing no signs of slowing down. While known colloquially as "punk-rock summer camp," the multiband trek is actually shockingly diverse this year. Sure, there's plenty of fodder for the kids, including emo-pop scene queens Hey Monday, hip-pop phenom Mike Posner and pop prodigy Christofer Drew, a.k.a. Never Shout Never. But Andrew W.K., he of the party-hearty positive jams, is a headliner, while acts ranging from the old-school (the Casualties, Face to Face, Bouncing Souls, Dillinger Escape Plan) to the newer school (Fake Problems, Set Your Goals, Riverboat Gamblers) are also along for the ride.
