You MUST be able to meet in person in the NYU neighborhood at 5:30 to claim the wristbands. Please only enter if you can meet this requirement. Good luck!

UPDATE (3/11): It appears they've smartened up a bit and added some locations. Here you go:
More Kick Off Party Updates- Also next Wednesday 3/16 from 5-9pm, there will be a limited number of ticket wristbands given away at the House of Vans, located at 25 Franklin St. (between Quay and Meserole) in Brooklyn.

Kick Off Party Updates- Five more locations with FREE tickets starting today, Supplies are limited so get them while they last: Manhattan (Blades @ 659 Broadway + Saturdays @ Surf 31 Crosby Street) Brookyln (Homage @ 151 Smith Street and KCDC @ 90 N. 11th street) Bayonne (Classic Skateshop @ 776 Broadwa
Well, these locations are majorly inconvenient for everyone involved with MFC, but I suppose it gives you an excuse to take the Staten Island Ferry. The more we think about this, the less it makes sense. The event is in GREENPOINT, BROOKLYN, and all of the outlets are on the opposite side of the city a good hour away at least. So you want kids from New Jersey / Long Island to travel all of the way to Greenpoint? Or kids from Brooklyn to haul themselves all the way to the sticks and come back? Sense, much? Whatever happened to Eventbrite? Or RSVPing? The details:
Starting this Friday + while supplies last you can get your FREE wristbands for admission to the Warped Kick Off Party (3/25 - House of Vans in Brooklyn), at five select Vans stores in the NY-area (Store locations in the attached flyer). Tix are limited to 2 per person and just come on in and say the secret code word "We Are Warped". The party features The Wonder Years, MC Lars, Moving Mountains and Lionize and will be capped off with the Teggart Stage announcement. And if that's not enough, a limited number of VWT tix for the Oceanport + Uniondale shows will be available for sale at a special low price, so bring your cash!!


  1. Sounds backwards, but it's because those are the only east coast locations of a Vans store.

  2. If you're going to throw a free show, don't make people completely bend ass over backwards. They are going to naturally get pissed off and all of the good well of throwing a free show is gone. It is called online ticketing. I get that they want us in their stores but no way in hell am I or hundreds of people trekking all the way to NJ or Long Island. The marketing / advertising thing is fine at the show but not cool in this instance.
