The Hasidic reggae-star, whose band includes Addison Groove Project keyboardist Rob Marscher, will share the stage with the likes of Against Me!, All That Remains, Anberlin, Angels and Airwaves, As I Lay Dying, Bouncing Souls, Cobra Starship, Every Time I Die, From First to Last, GBH, Gym Class Heroes, Jack’s Mannequin, Motion City Soundtrack, Norma Jean, Paramore, Pennywise, Reel Big Fish, Relient K, Rise Against, Say Anything, Story of the Year, Street Dogs, The Academy Is…, The All-American Rejects, The Bronx, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Vandals, among others. As of press time, Matisyahu is scheduled to appear at the Warped Tours stops in Atlanta (7/9), Orlando (7/10), Tampa (7/11) and Jacksonville, FL (7/13). After both Lollapalooza and Ozzfest repositioned themselves as destination events, the Vans Warped Tour is the last of the 90s mega-fests to stick with its traveling format.
