The Vans Warped Tour is established as America’s premiere traveling music and lifestyle festival of the summer, breaking up-and-coming indie talent as well as showcasing major established artists since 1995. It is the first tour to consistently use innovative environmental concepts every year on the road. The nationally-renowned festival has become an icon for youth, punk rock and skate culture bringing together a diverse lineup of artists, stemming from every genre, for the summer. Warped is also responsible for introducing music fans to hundreds of today's biggest punk, hardcore, and alternative bands. For more information on the tour that Alternative Press readers voted the “Best Tour/Festival” of 2012/2013 and Rolling Stone called “America’s most successful festival” (2005). 2018 will mark the final year of Warped Tour making a cross-country trip.
