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.

Kevin Lyman's Unite the United Foundation is auctioning off items to benefit the Kenadee Lucker Educational Fund.
MessageWe are all in shock about the sudden and tragic death of Mitch Lucker of Suicide Silence. Although the world and our lives will move on, he leaves behind a beautiful daughter, Kenadee, who will need the support that he promised her, and sadly will not be able to fulfill.

With that said, we feel his music family from the Vans Warped Tour and Rockstar Mayhem Festival can step up to help in the best way we can and that is to dedicate our winter charity auction proceeds to a trust fund for her future education and care.
Please show your support by checking our...

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."

Iwrestledabearonce vocalist Krysta Cameron has dropped off Warped Tour because she is pregnant. The band is carrying on with friend Courtney LaPlante filling in.
StatementThe day before our Warped Tour show in Dallas, TX we had a day off in the DFW area. Krysta lives there now, so she went home to relax and do some laundry. The next day, we received word from her minutes before our set that she discovered she and her fiancť are expecting a kid and she would not be returning to finish Warped Tour with us. Obviously this is an insane curveball for everybody, but in typical IWABO fashion we will press on. And no matter what happens, Krysta has been our best friend for years and we want her...

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.
From the ArticleThe City Council on Tuesday night bared its collective anxiety over the Vans Warped Tour, which rolls into the Great Park for an all-day concert next Thursday. About 15,000 teens and young adults, and about 80 bands. There's a couple of acoustic acts, but the council is concerned about the crowd that will come for the tender musical stylings of such self-identified genres as "death...

Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman recently did an interview with The Gunz Show where he discussed the logistics of Blink-182 playing the festival.
From the InterviewEveryone always says, ĎBring Blink!í And just as a sheer economics project, think about what Blink would cost and what youíd pay for a Blink ticket compared to a Warped Tour ticket. It doesnít work economically for Blink. Theyíre always welcome to come back. The door is never shut for anyone, but theyíve just gotta figure out how to come be part of it and still make it work for that $40 ticket at the door.

Check out a new interview with Kevin Lyman as he discusses this year's Warped Tour, here.
From the InterviewThatís weird. That one kid that yells at me online that I donít know what the fuck Iím doing, but you know what? Thatís ok. Maybe the tourís not for you anymore. The tour is not for everyone. Warped Tour is not for everyone. I believe that 10% of every scene is way too hardcore to be at Warped Tour. But 90% of the people out there are just music fans and want to have a good time. Maybe they will come to learn something. Maybe they will meet the people at To Keep A Breast or To Write Love On Her Arms or Invisible Children. Theyíre going to get involved in another way, you know?

The Drexel wunderkind PropertyofZack sat down with Brian Marquis, the man behind the acoustic Warped Tour stage, to find out a little more about the entire endeavor.
From the InterviewI think itís going to be really cool. It will bring something different to Warped Tour but also itís going to be different vibes for a stage. Itís going to be a large tent stage with three walls where people can hang out and sit down on the ground. They can also get as close to the performers as they want. There is no barricade, no high stage like the other stages at Warped, and itís going to be a real intimate setting. Thatís why I called it the ďAcoustic Basement.Ē It was to get the feeling as...
