If you’ve ever been one of those people who looks forward to the weekly reveal of artists for the Vans Warped Tour, then things are about to change. This year, it appears that the full lineup for the 2016 edition of the Vans Warped Tour will be announced all at once. On Tuesday (March 1) the announcement was made that gone are the days of “Warped Wednesday,” which will now be replaced by one big announcement due to take place at media university, Full Sail.
The big announcement is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 22. When asked why he teamed up with Full sail University to make the announcement, Warped Tour head honcho, Kevin Lyman had the following to say: “Last year when I visited Full Sail, I was blown away by their facilities. To be able to use them for our artist announcement webcast is a perfect way to start our 2016 partnership.”
“Since 2012, Full Sail’s relationship with the Vans Warped Tour has led to numerous internship opportunities for our graduates in roles ranging from live audio production to content reporters throughout the multi-city concert tour,” said Full Sail University’s VP of Alumni Relations/Event Producer, Jay Noble. “We are honored to host the 2016 Vans Warped Tour Lineup Announcement event on our campus at Full Sail Live, and look forward to more incredible experiences at the Warped Tour this summer.”
In addition to the announcement, which will come via a webcast from Full Sail University, selected artists that will perform on the Vans Warped Tour will perform during the live webcast. Tickets for the traveling rock show will go on sale at 10 am on its website.But, if you happen to be anywhere near Full Sail University, there is a chance for you to see the webcast in person. As of now, there are a limited amount of free tickets available to catch the event live.
