“Many of these bands have been around for a long time and have many songs to choose from, so this year instead of limiting them to five or six songs, they will have 40 minutes to play all your favorite songs from the past and a couple of new ones,” Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman said of the bands on the main stage.

Presale tickets go on sale April 1 on the fest’s Web site for approximately $25. The presale price includes the concert ticket, a 25-cent donation to the Camp Hollywood Heart charity and all service fees, as well as a copy of the Vans Warped Tour 2009 compilation CD, SideOneDummy. Seriously, such a bargain! 

Lucky fans that snatch up the limited number of presale tickets in each market will also have the chance to win exclusive prizes like tickets to a Vans Warped Tour 15th Anniversary special event in Los Angeles this September.

The regular onsale date is April 18.

    I love the warped tour. It still brings in new acts for people to be introduced to. not many tours or festivals out there that cost less than $40 to see more than 50 bands.

    My biggest problem is how Miami date is being held at the Cruzan amphitheatre that is not in Miami. LOL, now I have to find a way to trick my friends into believing that I was so dumb (they know im far from it) to book the room in Miami instead of West Palm Beach, FL.

    Those mainstream artists were what sold tickets.  Regardless if you like Katy Perry or not, there were plenty of people who came to see her.  While they were there, some of them might have found some other bands playing on the tour that they liked too.  I've been going since '95.  Not planning on going this year.  I also don't like the transition to sheds. Warped was about standing in a sweltering parking lot all day with the 2 main stages side by side and the other stages strewn around throughout.

    Beginning of the end? Where were you when they put Katy Perry on the bill? Warped Tour's been over, sorry to say! But I go every year, I can't deny Kevin Lyman my love.

    Main stage?  40 minutes?  This is the beginning of the end for the warped tour.
