Vans Warped Tour UK line-up revealed, Lostprophets and Bring Me The Horizon to headline

The Vans Warped Tour have officially announced the line-up for their stand-alone UK show.

The event, which returns after a thirteen year hiatus, will be headlined by Lostprophets who are currently supporting their new album ‘Weapons’ and also Bring Me The Horizon, performing their only UK show of 2012.

Ian Watkins from Lostprophets has this to say of the festival’s first standalone trip to the UK: “When we were growing up, we were always jealous of kids in the States who had the opportunity to go to Warped Tour. It was something we always wanted to do, and of course always wanted to play. Now we find out it’s making its way to the UK, and to make things even sweeter, we’ve been asked to headline. To say we’re honoured and excited is an understatement.”

Of their only UK show of 2012 BMTH’s Jona Weinhofen says: “We couldn’t be more stoked to play Warped Tour UK this November! We had an absolute blast on Warped Tour USA in 2010 and after such a long break writing the album this year, we’ll be ready to hit that stage HARD! Hopefully this will be the beginning of many future Warped Tour events all over the UK.”

Joining them will be New Found Glory, Less Than Jake, Man Overboard, The Story So Far, 3oh!3, The Acacia Strain, Awolnation, A Loss For Words, A Skylit Drive, Architects, Blood On The Dance Floor (first ever UK performance), Bowling For Soup, Breathe Carolina, Bury Tomorrow, Crossfaith, Dead Sara (also making their UK debut), Family Force 5, Me Vs Hero, Middle Finger Salute, Yashin and more still to be announced.

Vans Warped Tour UK will take place at the Alexandra Palace on Saturday, 10th November and will feature four stages, vert skateboarding championships, merchandise market, non-profits and vendors.
