Warped Tour 2013

If you're unfamiliar with Vans Warped Tour, tsk tsk. You're missing out! Beginning in 1995, Warped is an international music festival, stemming from North America into Europe and Australia. Though initially catering to punk pop and rock fans, Warped has broadened it's arms to reggae, pop, electronic and even hip hop/rap. With approximately 100 acts and 10 stages, it's an experience of a lifetime. The anticipation from music fanatics lasts all year long; from the day the bands are announced in the winter, to the beginning of summer, Warped can be considered a yearlong topic of conversation. At least for me it is.
Though this year I was unable to attend due to personal issues and complications (brb, going to cry again), here's a playlist including a few of my must see bands for Warped 2013. Also below, I broke down the acts in genres to help you get a feel of this year's lineup.

These selections are based on the bands that performed at the Hartford, CT leg and the genres provided on the Warped Tour website. I sifted through each genre and selected the bands that I would like to see perform.

Acoustic: I Can Make A Mess (Ace Enders from The Early November)

Alternative: Anarbor
