Wilsonville, OR (April 27, 2017)—Some say that Punk Rock ain’t like it used to be, and there’s at least some truth to that on the annual Vans Warped tour, because unlike the basement punk shows of yesteryear, Warped’s audio equipment actually works. Helping ensure the aural continuity amidst the chaos, Audix has become the official microphone sponsor of the 2017 Vans Warped Tour.
Established in 1995, The Vans Warped Tour is the longest-running and largest touring festival in the United States. This year, the all-ages festival includes more than 80 acts, such as Anti-Flag, Beartooth, BlessTheFall, Bowling for Soup, Creeper, Futuristic, GWAR, Hatebreed, I Prevail, Memphis May Fire, Neck Deep, New Years Day, Our Last Night, Sick Of It All, and TSOL, playing on seven stages and making stops in 41 cities this Summer. Audix microphones will be provided for all 7 stage backlines and PA, as well as for the workshops provided by The Entertainment Institute.
“We are truly excited to have signed on for the Vans Warped Tour this year,” said Chris Doss, vice president of Sales and Marketing, Audix. “It is a privilege to have the opportunity to share the clear, authentic sound of Audix with so many fantastic bands and their audiences across the US.”
“It is great for the Vans Warped Tour to have the support of endemic music companies like Audix,” says Kevin Lyman, founder, Warped Tour. “We are excited for the strategic opportunities that arise when partnering with a brand that is able to fit the unique rigors of the tour.”
