The Warped Tour, is a traveling rock tour and festival that has covered the United States (including 3 or 4 stops in Canada) annually, each summer, since 1995. It is known to be the largest traveling music festival in the United States, and is currently the longest-running touring music festival in North America.
The first Warped Tour took place in 1995, and the skateboard shoe manufacturer Vans became the main sponsor of the tour starting with the second tour in 1996. At that point it as billed as the Vans Warped Tour. Although Vans has continued to be the main sponsor and lend its name to the festival, other sponsors have also participated with stages or other aspects of the festival sometimes being named after them.
Warped Tour was conceived in 1995 as an eclectic alternative rock festival, but in 1996 began focusing primarily on punk rock music. Although it has continued to be known primarily as a punk rock festival, it has included acts of diverse genres over the years.
It was announced by Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman that the 2018 Vans Warped Tour would be the final, full cross-country run. Lyman did hint at a large celebration in 2019; the 25th year of the tour. We shall see. In the meantime there is a serious line-up this year and it is all coming to the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach on Sunday, August 5th, 2018.
