The Vans Warped Tour has become the highlight of the summer for many concertgoers. There are few opportunities for young artists to share an event with bands they admire and aspire to emulate. That is why we want to make sure that Cincinnati is well represented at this years event. is offering one lucky band the opportunity to play 22 dates of the Warped Tour + one other band will be chosen to represent Cincinnati at Riverbend Music Center on July 31. You can submit your band here. More info is below...
