Presenting The Monster Rock Allegiance Fest for 2015

There are Festival Shows and then there are festival shows and while I’ve been traditionally using this particular category for the tours that are heading across country, there are times like these where that needs to spotlight a festival of note. That said, let’s get the information out about the upcoming Monster Rock Allegience Fest that will happen in the Fall of 2015. I’ve shared the press copy and some provided photos but will be back to discuss with you later on. Let’s go.

Presenting: The Vans Warped Tour For 2014

Now while I realize that this was announced a little over a month ago, I wanted to wait until more of the performing bands and dates of performance were available and now with this being the case, please allow me to present the Vans Warped Tour for 2014; Are you excited? You sure are……

Logo - Vans Warped Tour - 2014

2014 marks the 20th Anniversary of this particular festival and its been entertaining the masses for every one of those years and to some gets better and better with each go round. It sure does offer up a lot of diverse bands and while I do recognize a number of the ones playing this year, they are outnumbered by the ones that I still have no background in. It happens with an event like this where bands are coming out of the woodwork. I love it though as it just reaffirms my belief in the fact that there are many talented people out there looking to keep you smiling.

So Who’s Playing?: A Lot Like Birds, A Skylit Drive, Air Dubai, Anberlin, Attila, Bad Rabbits, Beartooth, Beebs and Her Money Makers, Born Of Osiris, Breathe Carolina, Chelsea Grin, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, Courage My Love, Crown The Empire, Cute Is What We Aim For, Echosmith, Enter Shikari, Falling In Reverse, For Today, I Fight Dragons, I The Mighty, Issues, Less Than Jake, Mayday Parade, MC Chris, Mixtapes, Motionless In White, Nit Grit, Plague Vendor, Real Friends, Saves THe Day, Secrets, State Champs, Stray From The Path, Survive This!, Tear Out The Heart, Teenage Bottlerocket, Terror, The Color Morale, The Devil Wears Prada, The Ghost Inside, The Maine, The Protomen, The Ready Set, The Story So Far, The Word Alive, This Wild Life, To The Wind, Volumes, We Are The In Crowd, and Yellowcard.

That sure is a lot of music to enjoy and while I don’t think that I will personally be in attendance this year I wanted to make sure that fans had the means to purchase tickets for the show that is hitting their region.
