VANS WARPED TOUR: “Best Day Ever” And “Reverse Daycare” Expanded For 2013 (@WarpedTour)

vwt_prp

The VANS WARPED TOUR® kicked off this past weekend in the Northwest to great success and is now making its way around the country. OnSunday at the Portland, OR stop, the tour announced that all Dads could get in free in honor of Father’s Day. The program, which allows one parent a complimentary ticket into the festival if they are accompanying a paid ticket was an immediate hit and tour founder, Kevin Lyman, a Dad himself, has decided it will continue for the rest of the 2013 run so all Warped fans under 18 can attend without hassle (dates below). *Patrons can pick up the ticket at the Vans tent out front.

“We’ve been noticing on our boards lots of fans without transportation,” explains tour founder Kevin Lyman. “We decided everyday for 2013 should be Mother’s and Father’s day, so we will celebrate by giving any parent who is bringing someone to the Warped Tour a ticket to enjoy the fun.”

The program is also an extension of the Reverse Daycare tent. Located inside the vendor village on the Warped festival grounds, the Reverse Daycare is a special enclosed oasis–with air-conditioning, movies and cold-beverages–where festival-goers can drop-off their parents. This year, organizers have expanded the popular Reverse Daycare tent which continues to grow every year.

Additionally, those looking for a green way to attend the VANS WARPED TOUR can check out Rock & Bus* http://www.rockandbus.com which provides round trip shuttles to venues.
