Last night, Thursday, March 28, the VANS WARPED TOUR held an annual kick-off party and press conference event at Club Nokia (L.A. Live) in downtown Los Angeles, to celebrate the 19th annual VANS WARPED TOUR.
The kick-off party, hosted by comedian Grant Cotter, included performances from Chiodos, Gin Wigmore, New Beat Fund, Big Chocolate, MC Lars, Echosmith, as well as acoustic sets from Craig Owens and Brian Marquis. In addition, fans were treated to very special surprise performances from VANS WARPED TOUR alums Dia Frampton, Juliet Simms and Charlotte Sometimes, who gained success on the NBC hit TV show “The Voice.”
“As I do every year, I really strived to help create lifelong memories and make the Vans Warped Tour the best day of summer for everyone that attends,” said tour founder Kevin Lyman.
