Last week, Van’s Warped Tour announced its 2018 lineup. The final cross-country tour will be making 38 tour stops throughout two countries between late June and early August. The touring punk, ska, and hardcore festival will return to Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee for the last hurrah on Monday, July 23.

Though heavy-hitters like Bowling For Soup, Frank Turner, Sum 41, Taking Back Sunday, Underoath, All Time Low, and The Used are all skipping the Milwaukee stop, there are still some notables coming to town. Disgruntled teens and 30-somethings trying to relive their days as disgruntled teens can still see Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Simple Plan, and Twiztid. However, the rest of the lineup listed on the site—predominately featuring photos of four-to-five dudes mean-mugging the camera—is composed of lesser-known bands. In effort to help you navigate who Vans Warped Tour is bringing to Milwaukee in July, we’ve broken the acts down into band name subsets.
