Last night, Van’s Warped Tour announced its 2017 lineup. Two years after its 20th anniversary—which is still the punk/ska festival’s worst in recent memory—and a year removed from going back to basics with a mix of old a new acts, Warped Tour will be making 41 tour stops throughout the countries. The tour (which lands somewhere between 2015 and 2016 in terms of overall quality) will return to Henry Maier Festival Park in Milwaukee on Monday, July 24.

Though Bowling For Soup, Goldfinger, Streetlight Manifesto, Big D And The Kids Table, Strung Out, and The Suicide Machines 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 Anti-Flag, The Ataris, Hawthorn Heights, Hatebreed, CKY, Sick Of It All, Save Ferris, and Gwar. 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 Van’s Warped Tour is bringing to Milwaukee in July, we’ve broken the acts down into band name subsets.
