AT&T Mobility Delivers Big Warped Perks: AT&T Mobility will host the following exclusives for VWT fans:

“Skip the Line” Gate: Look for the “SKIP THE LINE” banner, flash your phone with AT&T service, and go straight into the concert without having to wait in line.

To help fans get the most bang for their buck, AT&T will provide band line-ups, autograph session schedules and other exclusive offers via special text messages. To opt-in, concert-goers can simply sign up for their particular city at www.warpedtour.com, www.att.com/warped or text WARPED to 334455.

AT&T Signing Stage: Back by popular demand, fans can meet their favorite bands and get autographs on limited edition VWT credentials and posters designed by renowned rock-poster artist Brian Ewing. Participating bands will be announced soon.

While teens are rocking out to their favorite bands, parents can enjoy a cold beverage, a massage and a movie with the help of soundproof headphones.

Skullcandy Mix Tent: Skullcandy, masters of stylish headphones and innovators of audio-enabled lifestyle products, is joining this year's Vans Warped Tour with the Skullcandy Mix Tent.

Tour fans can choose from several colors of headphone frames, as well as dozens of band-specific left and right ear caps, to create a unique headphone that reflects their personal taste. The ear caps are interchangeable, so kids will have the option to pick up caps for all of their favorite bands. In addition, Vans Warped Tour fans who have registered as members of VWT online community will receive an exclusive opportunity to purchase a limited edition DJ-style Vans Warped Tour Skullcandy "Lucky 13" collaboration headphone.
