Vans Warped Tour is returning to Australia. The team behind the Soundwave & Harvest Festivals will be the local promoter, as was announced on the big screens at the first show of the Soundwave Festival before Blink 182's set in Brisbane.
The Warped Tour is going to help launch a new "emotional media" site, called Vixlet. I spent a few minutes trying to figure out exactly what this is going to be, but the quotes in the article don't give much more than buzz-words. That said, I'm excited to see what comes out of it. Obviously, I believe the internet and music go well together.
A fan has written in that Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory claimed during last night's "Road to Warped UK" show at Nottingham Rock City that the "Warped UK festival in London is a tester," and "if it is well received then Vans will set up a full Warped Tour UK leg in 2013 in major cities around the country."
Taking Hayley have been added to the Vans Warped Tour UK line-up, having won the Ernie Ball Battle of The Bands. The UK pop-rockers will be joining the likes of Lostprophets, New Found Glory, Less Than Jake and many more on November 10 at the Alexandria Palace, London.

It looks like the Irvine City Council isn't exactly stoked to have Warped Tour come to town next Thursday. It seems like they're worried that people will be drinking beer and rowdily moshing. They're also afraid of Anti-Flag yelling at the crowd to "fuck police brutality" a bunch of times.
