Coffs Harbour makes the bill for global punk festival

COFFS Harbour has been named as the second date for the much-anticipated Australian return of the Vans Warped Tour.

One of the biggest festival tours in the world comes to the Mid-North Coast on Saturday, November 30.

Coffs Harbour is the only non-capital city included in the tour with Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide also having been confirmed for the event's return.

The event's roots are in punk rock and hardcore music and fans of the genres have been vocal in hoping for more of the same.

Although the line-up is yet to be announced, the most recent South American version of the event featured The Used, Memphis May Fire, Reel Big Fish and Black Veil Brides.

The event's Facebook page has garnered more than a million likes, an emphatic example of the event's huge following world-wide.

Promoter AJ Maddah has confirmed via Twitter there will be plenty of Australian bands represented.

He has previously confirmed there will be no sideshows offered alongside the event, meaning tickets will be highly sought-after when they go on sale.

Australia has been off the tour's calendar since 2002.
