As previously announced Xtra Mile Recordings have teamed up with Teenage Cancer Trust for a takeover of the Punktastic Acoustic Basement Stage.
Sunday November 17th sees XTRA MILE RECORDINGS team up with TEENAGE CANCER TRUST to celebrate the label’s 10th anniversary and raise awareness of a great cause by taking over the Punktastic Acoustic Basement. Label buddies SONIC BOOM SIX are joined by JIM LOCKEY AND THE SOLEMN SUN for two special performances away from the bustle of their respective Jägermeister Stage sets. NORTHCOTE and new addition to the line-up FIGHTING FICTION complete the bill.
And as part of this collaboration on the Punktastic Acoustic Basement Stage, two of the hottest bands from the roster will be popping by the Teenage Cancer Trust stall in the main Merchandise Village for a signing session. Both Sonic Boom Six and Jim Lockey and the Solemn Sun will be signing some exclusive limited edition Teenage Cancer Trust / Xtra Mile Recordings prints that are only available at Warped this weekend.
Timings are: SUNDAY: 3:30PM JIM LOCKEY AND THE SOLEMN SUN / 4:30PM SONIC BOOM SIX
As well as this Xtra Mile Recordings and Teenage Cancer Trust are organising a treasure hunt running on the Sunday only. Hidden about the beautiful interior of Alexandra Palace will be some goody bags – featuring Xtra Mile and Teenage Cancer Trust merchandise including T-shirts, stickers, badges, wristbands and much more. Clues to their whereabouts will be tweeted throughout the day so keep your eyes peeled to the @Xtra-Mile and @TeenageCancer Twitter pages for your chance to bag yourself some freebies!
The Acoustic Basement has long since been a staple on the US Warped Tour and the UK event looks to follow the tradition of bringing fans up close and personal for some special DIY performances from Main Stage artists and singer songwriters alike.
The Punktastic Acoustic Basement is situated in the festival’s new Market Area, where Punktastic will also be hosting a hang out area. Fans that register on the forums at punktastic.com to be the first to hear about pre-festival meet ups and further additions to the Acoustic Basement.
Both weekend (priced £75) and single day tickets (priced £40) for VANS WARPED TOUR in London are on-sale now at
Also available in person at Vans stores nationwide (no booking fee). As usual, the running order is to be decided on the day, and this year you may even see some surprise appearances from a select few bands who decide one show at WARPED is not enough and join for both days.
