We all thought 2018 would be the final Vans Warped Tour, but founder Kevin Lyman teased regions and dates where punk rock summer camp will convene.
About a year ago we learned Warped Tour's 2018 run would be its last. Just when we thought we were done being emo and crying about this, Kevin Lyman shared some pretty big news!
Plans are coming together for @VansWarpedTour 25th only thing I can say for now since many need to hold vacations dates are June 8 Cleveland, June 29-30 eastcoast, July 20-21 westcoast.
I guess Kevin and his Vans Warped Tour cohorts couldn't let the festival's silver anniversary pass without some acknowledgement. Apart from Cleveland, these dates and regions are pretty vague. And what's so special about Cleveland?
Either way - no bands or details have been announced other than Kevin's tweets. So we'll be watching warpedtour.com carefully for more info.
Of all the huge touring festivals that emerged in the 90s - Lollapalooza, Ozzfest, HORDE, Lilith Fair, etc - only Warped Tour was left standing well into the 2000s. Lollapalooza reinvented itself as a destination festival. Ozzfest has come and gone. The others are just gone.
