Vans Warped Tour Australia Melbourne Venue Details Locked In

Written by Mike Hohnen on October 15, 2013

Vans Warped Tour Australia organisers have firmed up more details for the festival’s long awaited return Down Under, once and for all locking in a venue for Melbourne. The event will be making its way to Birrarung Marr, located approximately a hop, skip and a jump away from Federation Square.

This site, of course, was originally mooted when the festival was first announced but, according to Maddah, the festival sold out their capacity at that venue and were forced to consider moving in order to accommodate fans of bands yet to be revealed as part of the second lineup announcement.

It was then believed that the festival would be taking place where events of this scale usually do, at Flemington Racecourse, but Warped punters would also be sharing a bus with people on their way to Stereosonic, and let’s just say that wouldn’t be too fun for anyone involved.

Now, though, it looks like Warped have full use of the area, situated on the banks of Melbourne’s Yarra River, and intend to use it fully.

Interestingly enough, it looks as though simply the promise of the festival’s return and only half of the lineup was enough to entice Melbourne folk through the gates, no matter the lack of venue details. According to Maddah, the Victorian leg of the festival is most likely to sell out first.

So far, the line up features the likes of The Offspring, The Used, Simple Plan and Parkway Drive with another round of bands expected to be announced this Friday.
