Warped Tour to Launch in Pomona This Year, Lineup Announced

Warped Tour to Launch in Pomona This Year, Lineup Announced

For the third straight year, the Vans Warped Tour--46 dates in 2009-will be kicking off at the Pomona Fairplex, this time on June 26. Pre-sales for tickets start April 1 (not a prank), with the "regular" on-sale date being April 18.

They've also announced the list of bands performing, though we don't yet know who's performing at what date yet. Names include: Newport Beach's Saosin (pictured), Huntington Beach's The Dirty Heads, Fullerton punk vets D.I. and Thrice, from Irvine, natch. And if you've ever paid attention to the Warped Tour before, you can probably guess the corral of hot emo/screamo/post-hardcore bands they've got booked (Forever the Sickest Kids, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, The Devil Wears Prada, I Set My Friends on Fire), along with considerably more seasoned acts (NOFX, Fishbone, TSOL, and it's not a Warped Tour without Bad Religion) and some more offbeat choices (Shooter Jennings, Meg & Dia, Dear and the Headlights, Manic Hispanic).

Full list of bands and dates, if you're interested, after the jump. Copy and pasting from press releases = the future of journalism?
