The Warped Tour features about 90 performers on multiple stages. Here are six acts you need to catch:

The Wonder Years' Dan Campbell calls Pierce the Veil "the biggest band out here by leaps and bounds" and fans can expect to hear the new single "The Divine Zero" during the San Diego band's set.

Never Shout Never will also be featured on the main, or Shark, stage. This year marks Christofer Drew's third Warped Tour appearance. Drew called "Black Cat," the band's upcoming release "our first fully realized album."

In 2010, two years after the hit song "Shake It" peaked at the No. 10 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, Trace Cyrus said he thought Metro Station's break was a permanent one. Alas, Miley's brother and Mason Musso have reconciled their differences and are back to making music, starting with a new EP featuring songs such as "She Likes Girls" and "Love and War." Metro Station can be found on the Journeys Right Foot Stage.

We Came As Romans can be found on the Unicorn Stage. So far, the band has been playing a seven or eight-song set featuring new single "The World I Used To Know," as well as hits "Ghosts" and "Hope."

Also playing the Unicorn Stage is Man Overboard, who will be playing close to their New Jersey home. Nik Bruzzese and Wayne Wildrik, who founded the emo band, are childhood friends.

For a change of pace, fans can head to the Journeys Left Foot Stage to check out the woman MTV called "the anti-Katy Perry of Pop." Brooklyn's Bebe Rexha is known for her breakup anthem "I Can't Stop Drinking About You" and her appearance on Cash Cash's "Take Me Home." She's sung both songs at past Warped stops.
