Vans Warped Tour will make a donation to Musicares in association with this event. Offering a wide-range of programs and services to members of the music community, Musicares® ensures they have a place to turn to in times of financial, medical and personal need.
“This event has been specially created to give Vans Warped Tour fans a chance to gather nationwide in celebration of 15 incredible years and hear these amazing bands who got their start here,” said Dan Diamond, vice president of Fathom. “One-of-a-kind performances from super groups, special behind-the-scenes access, red carpet clips and an exclusive, theater-only performance from Katy Perry are just a taste of what fans will experience from the comfort of their local movie theater.”
The Vans Warped Tour is North America's longest-running touring festival. Appealing to everyone from traditional punk fans to backpacking hip hop kids to metal heads, the traveling punk rock circus has its finger on the pulse of the most fiery acts in music.
“I consider Warped Tour to be an essential summer rite of passage for bands and crowds alike,” said Pete Wentz of The Decaydance All Stars. “I have met some of my best friends there and was introduced to new music, baby wipe showers and dry shampoo for the first time. More than anything I look forward to it every summer as a daylong escape for one hot day. And it’s especially cool that people are going to see the Warped Tour in a new setting – movie theaters – with the Anniversary special.”
