The Vans Warped Tour 2008 has added two acts to the main stage, Matisyahu and Chiodos, the tour announced this week. Matisyahu will join the tour for the July 9 (Atlanta, GA), July 10 (Orlando, FL), July 11 (Tampa, FL) and the July 13 (Jacksonville, FL) shows, while Chiodos will perform a one-night-only show on July 18 (Detroit. MI).

“I’m really glad this opportunity came up with Matisyahu,” said tour founder Kevin Lyman in a statement. “He’s an artist I’ve always felt would be an amazing addition to the line up, so I’m excited to have him finally join us for a bit. It’s always great to have a band like Chiodos–who’s been a part of the Warped family since the beginning of their careers–want to come back after all their success to spend a day with us.”

Matisyahu broke on the music scene in 2004, with his groundbreaking fusion of Orthodox Judaism and classic reggae music. He has toured with 311, played numerous festivals (Coachella, Langerado, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits) and sold out his annual Channukah season tour, Festival of Light.

Chiodos returns to the Vans Warped Tour after a successful arena tour with Linkin Park and their own sold-out headlining U.S. tour. Both acts will join previously announced main stage performers Against Me!, All That Remains, Anberlin, Angels and Airwaves, As I Lay Dying, Bouncing Souls, The All-American Rejects, The Bronx, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Cobra Starship, Every Time I Die, From First to Last, Motion City Soundtrack, Norma Jean, Paramore, Pennywise, Reel Big Fish, Relient K and Rise Against, among others.

The 46-date tour kicks off June 20 in Pomona, CA and wraps August 17 in Los Angeles, CA.
