Warped Tour's 2013 Line Up Has Been Posted-- And It's Just "Okay"

The Warped Tour lineup was released yesterday afternoon, and while we were (foolishly) hoping that Kevin Lyman would have a change of heart and model the long-running festival after something like Punk Rock Bowling or The Fest, the lineup, unsurprisingly, still caters to Hot Topic tweens.

There are two noticeable improvements on the ticket sale page, the first being the drop in ticket prices. I don't mean to play the "back in my day" card, but I do remember tickets being right around $30 ten years ago. The second piece of good news is the change in venue. This year's festival will be held at Quail Run Park in Mesa, which is hopefully an improvement over last year's poorly arranged baseball stadium.
