The Warped Tour 2012
Warped Tour was conceived in 1995 as an eclectic alternative rock festival, but in 1996 began focusing on punk rock music. Although it has continued to be known primarily as a punk rock festival, it has included acts of diverse genres over the years, including hip hop artists starting in 1999.
The band times and sets are found on an inflatable lineup, or can be purchased from a stand.
Every year there is a “BBQ Band”. In exchange for the privilege of playing on the tour, the BBQ Band prepares the post-show barbecue held for the bands and crew most evenings. Past BBQ Bands have included Dropkick Murphys, Art of Shock and “The Fabulous Rudies”. Similarly, one band, Animo (formerly DORK), has been permitted for the past four years to play on the tour in exchange for working on the setup crew. The “BBQ Band” for the 2016 tour is the band Reckless Serenade.
