With the final run of the Van’s Warped Tour just a few months away and band’s gearing
up to hit the road for the 38 date run, there is excitement in the air. In 1995 Kevin Lyman
started what would become the largest and longest running traveling music festival in
North America, which launched the careers of alumni No Doubt, Blink 182, Green Day and
Bad Religion to name a few. Twenty-four years later the tour will end with one last trek
around the country and returning to Ventura and Toronto for the first time in years.  Later
this month the tour will head over to Chiba, Japan for two days of the tour which will
feature Korn, Monoeyes and Tonight Alive one day and Prophets Of Rage, Andrew W.K.
and Pennywise the next. After that the tour will kick off on June 21st at the Pomona
Fairplex in California and end on August 5th at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm
Beach.  Bowling For Soup, The Interrupters, Pennywise, Reel Big Fish, Sum 41 and Taking
Back Sunday will be taking over the Journeys Left Foot Stage, while Simple Plan, Tonight
Alive and The Used take over the Journeys Right Foot Stage. Sharptooth and Silverstein
will be tearing it up on the Mutant Red Dawn Stage and Crown The Empire and Every
Time I Die will shred the Mutant White Lightning Stage.  The final year is debuting the
new Owly.fm Stage which will have Assuming We Survive, Dead Girls Academy, Palaye
Royale and With Confidence gracing it. Also stoked to hear that the Shiragirl Stage will be
returning for select dates that are yet to be announced.  Another exciting thing is the
unannounced surprised guests that will be performing this summer. Some amazing non-
profits that are set to join the touring festival are A Voice For The Innocent, Living The
Dream Foundation and To Write Love On Her Arms.  The Entertainment Insitute
(ThinkTEI) will also be returning to  host some educational workshops and Q&A sessions
with artists featured on the tour. It’s bittersweet that the end of the tour is nearing. I can’
t wait to see what Kevin Lyman has in store for us after this.  Whatever it is I know it will
be awesome!
