Warped Tour Preview: Tinley Park, Illinois

Once it hits Illinois, summer at the Warped Tour is almost over. Warped Tour begins its final stretch of shows on July 22 in Tinley Park, Illinois.

The tour may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean the head-banging and mosh pits have to. Warped Tour is bringing an enormous amount of good music to Illinois for one action-packed day.

There will be performances from Anti-Flag, The Ataris, Too Close To Touch, and Futuristic.

Do not hesitate to go see some female-fronted and all-female bands. There are many to choose from, such as Bad Cop / Bad Cop, New Years Day, Jule Vera, and War On Women.
