Next Year’s Vans Warped Tour Will Be The Last

2018 will see the last Vans Warped Tour

All good things must come to an end.

For 24 years, kids have been saving funds from their part-time jobs, allowances, and cashing in on birthday presents to go see their favourite bands at Vans Warped Tour. For a lot of us, Vans Warped tour was our first time at a festival, or concert even, and the place where we learned of the pleasures of music discovery. Unfortunately for the next generations of music lovers, there soon won’t be such thing as the Vans Warped Tour.

In an announcement made today, Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman stated that next year’s run will be its last.

“I have been proud to work with so many artists who have grown to be some of the largest stars in the world,” Lyman stated. “Countless bands have played in hot parking lots and through summer storms for you at some point.”
