Rancid, Weezer, 311, Kool Keith, Pennywise, Rollins Band, and the Misfits are some of the bigger artists confirmed to play the annual Vans Warped Tour, set to kick off June 22 in Phoenix. An official announcement of participating venues and additional acts for the nearly two-month tour is expected within two weeks.

Making its Warped Tour debut this year will be Incredibly Strange Wrestling, a hybrid of punk rock and hardcore wrestling. ISW appeared on the San Francisco scene in the mid-’90s, and features such wrestlers as El Pollo Diablo, Macho Sasquatcho, Chupa Suave, and El Homo Loco. Young punks making the trek out to the Warped Tour will be encouraged to throw tortillas at the wrestlers.

Here is the complete list of confirmed artists playing the 2001 Warped Tour: 311, Afi, Alien Ant Farm, the Ataris, Big Wig, Distillers, Dub Pistols, Esham, Fear, Fenix TX, Good Charlotte, Grant Theft Auto, Guttermouth, H20, Jepetto, the Juliana Theory, Kill Your Idols, Kool Keith, Less Than Jake, Madcap, Me First & The Gimme Gimmes, Midtown, the Misfits, Morgan Heritage, New Found Glory, No Motiv, Pennywise, Rancid, River City Rebels, Rollins Band, Saves The Day, Sugarcult, the Vandals, Userfriendly, and Weezer.

Launch Media purchased the punk-centered music and sports festival last year from Creative Artists Agency, tour founder Kevin Lyman, and law firm Codikow, Carrol, Guido and Groffman.
