The only thing we know for certain about the 2017 incarnation of the Vans Warped Tour is that The Ghost Inside will not be playing; in spite to their pledge this time last year to play the 2017 fest, they simply aren’t far along enough in their recovery just yet.
That said, the 2016 lineup leaked in March… so we shouldn’t be too far away from learning more.
In the meantime, the site Kill The Music claims to have sources that have given them intel about the 2017 fest. Bad Religion, Lagwagon, CKY, Black Veil Brides, Beartooth, Hatebreed and Gwar are allegedly playing this year, and while five bands from Epitaph Records and five from Fat Wreck Chords will be on the lineup, there will be 25 less bands overall than usual “to ensure this year is quality.”
Having Gwar on the tour would be a fresh look for both the band and Warped, and could explain (in part) why they aren’t hosting Gwar-B-Q this year. The other bands are all Warped Tour vets and certainly make a ton of sense.
More info as we get it!
