The Vans Warped Tour, the most successful and longest running touring festival to date, has confirmed the line-up for its 15th installment. Its 52-act roster includes Bad Religion, Black Tide, Chiodos, Flogging Molly, Less Than Jake, NOFX, Meg & Dia and many others.

Venues have not been confirmed but the 46-city tour kicks off June 26 in Pomona, CA, finishing up on August 23 in Los Angeles, CA.

One change to this year’s format is there will only be one main stage, which is also a way to keep ticket prices low with a tighter concert production cost in light of a tough economy.

“Many of these bands have been around for a long time and have many songs to choose from, so this year instead of limiting them to five or six songs they will have 40 minutes to play all your favorite songs from the past and a couple new ones too,” Warped Tour creator Kevin Lyman explained on the tour’s Web site. “This year’s line-up is a great mix of the old and the new and continues our attempt to keep the line-up as diverse as possible.”

“Of course, I always like to announce special guests along the way, but I think this is a great start!” added Lyman.
