William Beckett with a special message for Warped fans

Each date will also feature impromptu performances by other artists on the tour and special guests. Last year we had surprise guests like Yellowcard, Sleeping With Sirens, Anti-Flag, John Nolan of Taking Back Sunday and more - so, you never know who you might catch at the Acoustic Basement! We also listened to your feedback and made some improvements for this year. We increased the size of the tent, raised the stage for better visibility and will have a more powerful sound system to make sure your experience is the best it can be!
