Vans Warped

Cleveland, OH – The Vans Warped Tour, presented by Journeys®, announces the lineups for its bi-costal 25th Anniversary events that celebrate the final showcase of the tour’s iconic culture. The unique music experience will stop in three locations including Cleveland, Ohio, Atlantic City, New Jersey and Mountain View, California and caps off 25 years of history of the Vans Warped Tour.

The Vans Warped Tour has partnered with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to create a special new exhibit, Forever Warped: 25 Years of Vans Warped Tour, celebrating a quarter-century of the iconic traveling music festival. This comprehensive exhibit documents the history of the tour from its inception in 1995 through the final cross-country run in 2018.

Visitors will see artifacts from quintessential Warped bands and breakout artists from the tour’s lengthy run, including instruments played by members of Fall Out Boy, No Doubt, Rancid and Reel Big Fish and stage clothing worn by Joan Jett and Ice-T. The exhibit will also present iconic items from the very first Warped Tour, as well as from 2018’s final touring run. And much more!

With this exhibit, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will recognize the cultural relevance of the Vans Warped Tour and its significance to the punk rock/skate community.

“Not only did Vans Warped Tour provide a launching pad for numerous artists, it also helped bring underground culture into the mainstream and created a real community for fans that may have struggled to fit in elsewhere,” said Amanda Pecsenye, Curator at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “The lasting impact of Warped Tour cannot be underestimated.”

On Saturday, June 8th, 2019, the Forever Warped exhibit will kick off with a special opening concert bringing to life an exhibit celebrating the 25 years of Vans Warped Tour alongside acts such as:

  • Simple Plan
  • We The Kings
  • Hawthorne Heights
  • Emery
  • Chali 2na & Cut Chemist

The Vans Warped Tour holds a very special place in our hearts and in our history.” explains Steve Van Doren, vice president of global events and promotions at Vans. “It was through the annual tour that we were able to bring music and action sports to youth across the globe for over two decades. We are really excited to partner with Kevin and the Warped team to put on a once in a lifetime experience to celebrate the tour’s final year.”
