The Vans Warped Tour is looking for a Pit Reporter for its UK Leg on November 10th at London’s Alexandra Palace. In keeping with the tradition of the US tour, they are giving aspiring journalists and TV presenters the chance to apply.
HERE’S HOW: hot shots should send in 3 of their best photos and a 60-second video on why they think they should go to the November 10th Vans Warped Tour stop in London and cover the show as the festival’s official Warped Pit Reporter.
Organisers are looking for someone who knows the difference between Dig and Digg and is comfortable with all aspects of new media and social networking.
All applications must be received by midnight, October 7th and be sent to: email@example.com
The Vans Warped Tour team will review all applications** and the winner will be notified via email and / or phone by October 15th.

In other exciting news, The Indecent are the latest addition to the Vans Warped Tour UK line-up. If the Seattle scene were to have a baby with the New York underground scene you would have The Indecent. A buzz is fast building as they make music that is aggressive, subtle, poetic, noisy, and quite often all these things at once.
They join a line-up that boasts such bands as Lostprophets, Bring Me the Horizon, 3OH!3, New Found Glory, Less Than Jake and many more.
Fans should keep their eyes peeled for a final and exciting band announcement in the coming weeks!
The Vans Vert ramp will be at Alexandra Palace as the perfect accompaniment to the day’s music. UK fans will be see demos from a number of Vans skate and BMX team riders, including stalwarts such as Steve Caballero and Dennis McCoy.
This demo is in addition to the Vans UKSA National Vert Skate Championships taking place at Warped. With a prize purse of £15,000 up for grabs, the contest will feature the biggest names in the UK vert scene.
Expect to see living legends including Sean Goff and Andy Scott alongside current heavy-hitters and X-Game medallists Sam Beckett and Sam Bosworth, with the next generation snapping at their heels, including Matty Carlisle, who has already made the 720 his signature trick. Witness a huge array of styles and trick variety from the competitors who range in age from 14 to 47!
This is sure to be a great show; the competition will take the form of jams held between band performances with each one lasting around 20 minutes. This format emulates the more natural ‘session’ style of skateboarding with each skater pushing the others and encouraging the best performances from everyone involved. Ex-RAD TV presenter and pro skateboarder Marc Churchill will MC alongside veteran kingpin of the UK Vert scene Steve ‘Wingy’ Wilkinson, so be prepared to laugh, cry and be very entertained!
VANS WARPED UK 2012 takes place Saturday November 10that London’s Alexandra Palace.
