Six hundred thousand fans, 200 bands, and 43 cities—get ready for an all-access pass to 52 days of punk rock summer camp on the 2010 Vans Warped Tour! A launch pad for bands like No Doubt, Sublime, Pennywise and My Chemical Romance, the tour sparked a movement. The new lineup still unites outcasts of all kinds and inspires kids to start their own groups. Featuring Mike Posner, the pop star with a radio hit; Never Say Never, the peace and love heartthrobs; and Suicide Silence’s metal frontman and mellow family man, No Room for Rockstars looks beyond the main-stage performances to the beauty, biz and burn out of life on the road. Whether you’re a musician, a roadie or a wannabe hustling homemade CDs for five bucks a pop, the touring grind will either set you up or tear you down. Angie Driscoll
