First Round Of Bands For ‘Road To Warped Tour’ Announced

After an incredibly busy week sifting through the dozens of submissions for the Halifax stop on ‘Road To Warped Tour’, our first 4 bands have been picked.


These 4 talented acts will participate in our first qualifying night at Oasis Pub on Spring Garden Rd. These ‘Battle of the Bands’ style qualifying nights will ultimately decide who represents Halifax on the Lemon Entertainment Stage at the Vans Warped Tour stop at Darrien Lake in Buffalo, NY.


The first Road To Warped Tour qualifying event will take place at Oasis Pub on Spring Garden Rd. on May 13th, with two more qualifiers to follow on May 20th and May 27th. Then, on June 3rd, the winner of each of these qualifiers, PLUS one ‘wild card’ finalist (chosen from the bands that participated in the qualifying rounds, but didn’t win) will perform for the chance to be named the Halifax champion!


Our grand prize winner will win an all expenses trip to the show, and get to perform on the same stage that broke artists like NOFX, Blink 182 and so many more.


Without further ado, here are our first 4 qualifying bands that will compete at Oasis Pub on May 13th (in no particular order):


1.Abandon Suburbia




2. Fillerneck




3.Generation Idiot




4.Spirit of the Wildfire




Congratulations to Abandon Suburbia, Fillerneck, Generation Idiot and Spirit Of The Wildfire! They’ll be performing at Oasis Pub on May 13th in the first of 3 qualifying rounds for Road To Warped Tour 2016! The battle is open to the public, some come down, grab a drink with the Live 105 crew, and cheer on your favourite band as they duke it out to represent Halifax at the Vans Warped Tour in Buffalo!


Also, stay tuned to Live 105 mornings next Friday when we announce the NEXT 4 bands to compete in our second qualifying round!
