Bad Religion, the Vandals, Good Charlotte, Lars Frederiksen & the Bastards, and NOFX are among the more than 50 acts set for the 10th anniversary edition of the Vans Warped Tour.

The trek, which will begin June 25 in Houston, will also feature New Found Glory, Thursday, Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard, the (International) Noise Conspiracy, Simple Plan, Bouncing Souls, and Coheed & Cambria.

Other acts set to appear for at least a portion of the tour include the Alkaline Trio, Anti-Flag, Atmosphere, Avenged Sevenfold, Billy Talent, IMA Robot, Jackson, Lillix and the Sounds.

Beginning Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. ET, fans can log onto the festival’s official Web site (http://www.vanswarpedtour.com) for an Internet pre-sale that will offer a limited amount of tickets at $23.74 each. Included with the purchase is a two-disc compilation album featuring acts from last year’s tour, and a 25-cent donation to Hollywood Heart (http://www.camppacificheartland.org), which provides a summer camping program for children infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

The sale reverts to regular pricing – about $25 per ticket plus Ticketmaster surcharges – after the bargain tickets sell out or tickets go on sale in a particular market. The number of discounted tickets vary per date, and the CD is only available to those who buy tickets in advance.
