Vans Warped Tour Will Return For Select Dates Next Summer

December 18, 2018

It seems like just yesterday we were saying goodbye to the Vans Warped Tour. Mostly, because it was.

After 24 years, the traveling punk and hardcore festival that created careers and helped us discover some of our favorite bands called it quits, deciding to end their run with one last trip around the country.

2018's final cross-country trek for the Vans Warped Tour proved there was still very much a need for the tour with nearly every date selling out with fans wanting to commemorate the tour's 24 year history. It was previously known that Warped Tour wouldn't be completely finished with it always being teased that it would return, but on a much smaller scale. Now, founder Kevin Lyman has given us hints at what to expect for 2019 - the tour's 25th year.

It appears there will be five Warped dates in the summer of 2019 with one being in Cleveland, two on the east coast & two in the west coast (July 20-21). 

Many joined the Vans Warped Tour in their final full run, as the festival brought together veterans and newcomers, and continued their tradition of uniting music and activism. According to HeadCount, no other tour his year had the same impact on voter registration that Warped did, topping the list in a landslide and proving their continued impact.

In the meantime, mark your calendars and prepare to sweat to the sounds of punk rock one more time.
