Resurget’s Guide to Vans Warped Tour – Detroit

The bittersweet final cross country run of Vans Warped Tour is making it’s annual stop in Michigan this week. It will be at Meadow Brook Amphitheater in Rochester rather than the usual Palace parking lot.

The new venue did not stop people from coming, as the festival has officially sold out. This year’s stacked line up has many variations throughout the dates. The staff at Resurget has put together their top picks of who they think you should check out on July 20th.

3OH!3 (Journeys Left Foot)
Rumor has it they are playing all of their first album. I saw them at the 2008 Warped on the main stage and it was by far one of the wildest sets I’ve seen.

Beartooth (Journeys Left Foot)
Torchbearer (Local)
Sharptooth (Mutant Red Dawn)
Boys of Fall (Full Sail)

Capstan (Owly.fm)
If you haven’t heard of Capstan, do yourself a favor and check them out at Warped. Their sound is tight and they have an energy on stage that leaves you speechless.

The Maine (Journeys Right Foot)
They’re one of my favorite live bands, always putting on an entertaining set. I’ve actually never seen The Maine on a warped stage so what better year than the last?

Four Year Strong (Journeys Right Foot)
Kublai Khan (Mutant Red Dawn)
Harms Way (Mutant White Lightning)
Simple Plan (Journeys Right Foot)

We The Kings (Journey’s Right Foot)
Warped Tour veterans in We The King take my choice of the must see artist this summer. Covering grounds with not only their nostalgia hits like “Check Yes Juliet” or “She Takes Me High” this bands entire catalog makes for a perfect band to catch.  Recently releasing their album “Six” at the start of this years Warped Tour- this band is one you NEED to catch this out there if you’re already fan or not.
