It’s Friday again, and time for your weekly Warped Tour update! Our amazing peta2 tour crew, along with a little help from yours truly, has spent the summer getting the word out that testing on animals is unacceptable and buying cruelty-free is the only way to go! In addition to the thousands of kids at every Warped Tour stop who signed our Animal Testing Breaks Hearts petition, I talked to dozens of bands who were stoked to help fight the good fight!
The signatures we have for you this week prove how diverse Warped Tour has become. Of course the tour still shows love for old school favorites like Bad Religion and NOFX, but we also caught up with some of this year’s newcomers! Florida natives and one of Fueled By Ramen’s newest signings, Versa Emerge; one of my favorite bands of the tour and incredible live performers, Dear and the Headlights; cute and catchy electro-pop chart toppers The White Tie Affair; and vegetarian fashionista Jac Vanek all signed our petition to stop product testing on animals!
Who was your favorite band to perform on Warped Tour this year that you’d never seen before?
