From a press release:

The 2017 Vans Warped Tour lineup was announced last night via a live webcast of a concert at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida, featuring a selection of this year’s artists and giving fans official confirmation on many acts while dispelling rumors of others that “leaked” on the Internet over the last few weeks.

The 41-date tour will commence on Friday, June 16 in Seattle, Washington and end on Sunday, Aug. 6 in Pomona, California, making its annual stop at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain (1000 Montage Mountain Rd., Scranton) on Monday, July 10.

Some of the biggest surprises and welcome additions playing the Scranton date include GWAR, Hatebreed, CKY, Anti-Flag, Sick of It All, Municipal Waste, The Adolescents, War on Women, Strung Out, Neck Deep, and Valient Thorr, among many others listed below.

Tickets, which are $43.50, plus fees, are on sale now at,,, and all Ticketmaster outlets. As a bonus for early ticket buyers, the first 500 tickets sold for each show will be at the lowest price available and will include a digital download of the official 2017 Vans Warped Tour 50-song compilation.

Now in its 23rd year, the Vans Warped Tour is the largest traveling music festival in the United States and the longest-running touring music festival in North America. Originally conceived by founder Lyman in 1995 as an eclectic alternative rock festival, with a focus on punk rock, over the years the tour has grown to include a multitude of genres, including metal, hip hop, reggae, pop, and more, and showcases both established and up-and-coming talent.

The tour, presented by Journeys, has also cemented its place in history by bringing alternative rock and skate culture from the underground to the forefront of global youth culture, while at the same time helping those in need through nonprofit and eco initiatives. Alternative Press readers voted the Vans Warped Tour as the “Best Tour/Festival” and Rolling Stone called it “America’s most successful festival.”
