UPDATE: MARCH 1, 2019, 11:05 A.M. EST
Warped Tour revealed the actual lineup for Cleveland, Atlantic City and Mountain View today, which you can view here.
ORIGINAL STORY: FEB. 27, 2019, 10:17 P.M. EST
The 25th Anniversary Warped Tour shows are quickly approaching. With early bird and pre-sale tickets having gone on sale earlier this week (and selling out much of what was available), the anticipation is high.
The three cities receiving a visit from the anniversary run will have their artist lineups revealed Friday. With fans on high alert for any nugget of information, it appears that a fake lineup began to make the rounds.
The lineup showed the full list of artists playing across two days in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It was made up to look pretty Warped Tour-like with the festival’s logo and general aesthetic.
It features artists such as A Day To Remember, the Offspring, Anberlin, All Time Low, Story Of The Year, the Used, Circa Survive, Lights, Every Time I Die, Boston Manor and Real Friends. They even included Pennywise who performed the last song at the last cross-country run of the punk rock summer camp.
A Day To Remember being included in the fake lineup makes sense. Warped Tour itself added fuel to the fire when sharing a teaser video for pre-sale tickets Sunday. In the caption, they hinted at some lineup clues being included in the video.
The clip featured ADTR’s “The Downfall Of Us All” from their now 10-year-old album Homesick. A Facebook user called them out for the song choice, asserting “ADTR better be there.”
The festival responded with, “It would be truly horrible to use a song from a band that we don’t have booked…just saying.”

The following day, the band announced their summer tour, which ends June 28 in Rhode Island—one day prior to the Atlantic City date.
Twitter users immediately noticed this and began to ponder if the band would make an appearance.
I have convinced myself adtr is going to warped 🥴

Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman caught wind of the fake lineup in question and quickly shot it down. Much like the Grammys addressing their supposed leak earlier this year, he made sure to set the record straight. He also says the fake flier producer should start a tour of their own, which to be honest, we agree with.
“Anyone in the know, know’s this is a fake
@VansWarpedTour line-up since it is way better than anything I ever could put together. Whomever it was should start a tour!”
