Van Warped Tour #19

Van Warped TourThe juggernaut the Vans Warped Tour is now in it’s 19th year with this year’s theme being the “Best Day Ever”. Tour founder Kevin Lyman has said, “As I do every year, I really strived to help create lifelong memories and make the Vans Warped Tour the best day of summer for everyone that attends.”

The Warped Tour is the longest running US concert festival tour with more than half a million attending each summer. It is a smorgasbord of music featuring punk, alternative, hip-hop, electronica, emo, hardcore and acoustic. The tour has been a launching pad for many bands to make it big. The idea is to develop headliners rather than work only with bands who have already made it big.

Van Warped Tour The Warped Tour is probably the biggest bang for your buck concert of any you could go to this summer. More than 60 acts are featured on the tour. With so many bands, more than one band plays at a time ensuring you will never get bored. The tour is also unusual because of how much fans are able to interact with bands. Band members sign autographs at booths and quite often are the ones selling you merch.

The experience is meant to be much more than an average concert. The Vans Warped Tour is a music packed experience that will leave you ready and waiting for next year.
