Here are just some of the bands listed to appear:
The hardest working Jewish rapper I know, Kosha Dillz is on Vans Warped Tour! This is quite an odd choice, as traditionally Warped Tour has always been about punk, emo, and alternative bands. Personally, we think it's refreshing that Warped Tour is opening up music genre... and hope to see more diversity.
Recently, Kosha Dillz was behind the stage where Riff Raff (also on Vans Warped Tour) was performing - but the star rapper was nowhere to be found. Everyone was freaking out, and with only one minute to go before show time... Kosha said, "throw me to the wolves!" and the next thing he knew he was on stage in front of 5000 people! Half way into his set, Flex Mathews joined Kosha... then MC Lars stepped in for a freestyle.

MC Lars, the nerdcore rapper... who freestyled with Kosha Dillz out on Vans Warped Tour to promote his upcoming album The Zombie Dinosaur LP (available October 6, 2015, via Horris Records).
Although you can't get the album just yet, we are pretty sure he will be previewing some of these new songs. According to the press release, expect plenty of nerd-name-dropping like Legend of Zelda, Comic-Con, Bushwick, Roger Rabbit, etc.
The title The Dinosaur Zombie LP might seem a bit random at a cursory glance, combining the obvious touchstones of Jurassic Park with The Walking Dead, but the meaning goes deeper. "The zombie dinosaur is a metaphor for the unstoppable person who just keeps going - at any cost," he explains. "It's crazy to think that I've been putting out albums since 1998, touring internationally since 2003, and playing the Warped Tour every other summer since 2011. I feel like a dinosaur because I've been doing this so long, but I also feel like I've gotten better and better each year. You could also say that I'm a zombie in the sense that my rhymes and beats are more infectious with every release, and if you are there when you hear my spit, you'll forever be converted and changed (much like the result of being bitten by a zombie). #metaphors"
