Vans Warped Tour has added another stage to the California dates—and it will empower female performers.
The Shiragirl stage, which has been featured on Warped Tour before, will host female-fronted bands such as the Dollyrots, Shiragirl, Blameshift and more. More acts who will perform on the stage will be announced at a later date. The stage has hosted more than 250 female-fronted bands, including Paramore on their first tour and Joan Jett.
The stage will be at Pomona June 21, San Diego June 22 and Ventura June 24.
The Shiragirl stage was founded by Shira Yevin, the lead singer of Shiragirl, to give women a platform at music festivals, which often feature a disproportionate number of male-lead acts to female-lead acts.
“It means a lot to be part of the final Vans Warped Tour and bring back the Shiragirl Stage,” Yevin said. “Warped has been such a huge part of my life personally and has allowed us to provide a platform for over 250 female-fronted bands and artists, acting on my mission to empower and inspire women through creative expression.”
