The UK leg of the VANS WARPED TOUR is sure to be the place to be this November when it rolls into Ally Pally on the 16th and 17th for two days of guitar-fuelled mayhem. After already presenting a stellar line-up of international talent – see ENTER SHIKARI, PARKWAY DRIVE, BILLY TALENT and RISE AGAINST to name just a few – six more bands have joined the action to complete a dazzling bill.

Fresh from recent dates with Jimmy Eat World, London’s own WE ARE THE OCEAN bring their colossal choruses to Ally Pally on the Sunday (Monster Energy Main Stage) to add another undoubted highlight to the day’s festivities. Equally as vital but altogether more brutal, the Saturday line-up has also been boosted with the raucous ATTILA (Monster Energy Main Stage).

Also jumping on board on Saturday are the synth-infused metalcore attack of THE DEFILED and newcomers LOVE ZOMBIES. Completing an unholy Sunday are east London reggae renegades THE SKINTS (Jagermeister Stage) and the pure party-punk of RAT ATTACK. The full day splits are listed below. In keeping with the finest traditions of the VANS WARPED TOUR, the running order is to be decided on the day.

When we say the final bill, we still have room for just one more artist to bring the noise. In keeping with all of the European WARPED dates, our friends at Ernie Ball will give one rising band the chance to at play the UK show. For the chance to join the line-up, bands should head to From there, artists can set up their own profile to encourage fans to vote. Voting runs until October 25th, so bands should make the most of their time by pimping their Twitter and Facebook pages, e-mailing fans, and generally rallying the troops to vote. A shortlist of the top voted bands will then be sent to Ernie Ball’s music industry panel of judges before the winners are revealed.

Fans can also expect to see The Vans Vert Ramp in action with demos from legends of the BMX and skate world, a full merch market, signings, giveaways, and all the fun of the Warped Tour under one roof.
