Hey Alties, I’m sure you all know about the glorious festival of music that is Warped Tour – for some it’s practically a rite of passage. This year, Warped’s first Ohio stop is in Cuyahoga Falls (Cleveland area) at the Blossom Music Center Thursday, July 18.

In case you haven’t yet been initiated to the pack, Warped Tour is a touring music and extreme sports festival – America’s longest running concert tour, reaching over 500,000 people every summer. This year’s tour offers 52 shows featuring music genres ranging from punk and electropop to ska and hardcore. Warped Tour also offers meet and greets with artists, giveaways, and other entertainment.

The lineup for the Cleveland date encompasses 74 acts, including Anarbor, August Burns Red, Bring Me the Horizon, Chiodos, Forever the Sickest Kids, Go Radio, Hawthorne Heights, ICMAM, I see Stars, Memphis May Fire, Motion City Soundtrack, Never Shout Never, Oh Sleeper, Relient K, Sleeping with Sirens, The Amity Affliction, The Early November, The Summer Set, VersaEmerge, We Came As Romans, and many more. This is one mosh after another that you don’t want to miss.
