Last November, Vans Warped Tour founder and producer Kevin Lyman announced the 2018 traveling festival would be the last cross-country run for the longstanding "punk rock summer camp."
For more than two decades, the traveling music fest has featured pop punk, emo, and punk rock acts like Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, and Blink 182. Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas, No Doubt, and Eminem have also all performed on festival dates. Now, the final iteration will include a host of legendary acts, making this closing chapter something of a backwards glance at the Warped Tours that have gone before us.
