Today legendary Vans Warped Tour announced the lineup for its last full cross-country tour. The lineup includes classic Warped Tour bands like Reel Big Fish, Simple Plan, Four Year Strong, 3OH!3, and Underoath, along with newer Warped Tour bands like State Champs, Real Friends, Waterparks, and Movements. Additionally, All Time Low and Taking Back Sunday will be playing select dates. What a treat!
Yesterday following the lineup announcement, Vans Warped Tour hosted their annual BBQ and press conference at Vans headquarters in Orange County, California. Founder Kevin Lyman shared his thoughts and a couple of sweet sentiments about the end of the tour and commented,”The spirit of Warped Tour will continue”. Following the spirit of Warped Tour that has always been music, philanthropy, and education, founder Kevin Lyman unveiled the new FEND Movement (Full Energy, No Drugs). Over the summer, he plans to take a stand against opioids by using the reach of the tour. Fans can download the app Preventum to start participating in the outreach now.
