15 Can’t Miss Nashville Warped Tour Bands | TODAY, June 29 @ The Fairgrounds

WarpedTour2016-620

Returning to Nashville for the third year in a row, following an extended Music City absence, the long-running Vans Warped Tour, now in its 22nd consecutive year (making it the longest running traveling summer fest by a huge margin), is back in town today, June 29 at The Fairgrounds Nashville (formerly known as the Tennessee State Fairgrounds). Gates for the all ages affair open at 11 a.m., with music slated to start shortly after, and conclude this evening around 7 p.m. Tickets are still available online or at the gate, and, while early bird rates have passed, at $49, you’re still averaging less than $1 a band.

While Warped’s lineup is, and has long been, largely aimed at the teenage demographic, the fest has always maintained a fairly eclectic lineup, balancing a healthy crop of legacy acts with a new batch of artists ranging from punk to ska to hardcore to metal to hip hop to EDM to indie and everything in between. This year’s bill is the best we’ve seen in a awhile, especially if you’re a nostalgic 20-something, and Nashville’s stop especially is teeming with talent. To help you navigate the nearly 70-act bill, spread out across seven stages, we’ve rounded up our top performers, and ranked the 15 you don’t want to miss. Check out our picks below!

[TICKET GIVEAWAY] FLAG w/ War on Women & The Dirty Nil | July 5 @ Exit/In

FLAG-620

Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat: FLAG are Black Flag. We know, we know, there’s another band out there operating under than moniker, and you don’t see Henry Rollins in the photo above, and the name is different, but trust us, this is the most Black Flag version of Black Flag in existence, and real O.G. purists might even call them the most authentic lineup ever. Fronted by original vocalist and hardcore hero Keith Morris, FLAG are not a tribute, and technically not even a Black Flag reunion, but four of its five members carry original, authentic pedigree (the fifth is a Descendent), and play all of the early songs that helped blaze the trail for ’80s hardcore, cementing a base for the subsequent Rollins-led version of the band to become legendary. Along with hardcore feminist punk outfit War on Women and Canadian alt rock trio The Dirty Nil, the group will play Nashville for the first time next week, July 5 at Exit/In! Tickets for what is sure to be an unforgettable show are still available right here while they last. Additionally, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan, so read on to find out more about the lineup and enter below! Find out more about the lineup→
