The Warped Tour founder suggested something might be returning, but it’ ll have a different name. Obviously, with the coronavirus pandemic bringing the music industry (and much else) to a standstill, Warped Tour has no chance of returning in 2020 .
It’s time to say goodbye to Van’s Warped Tour . The “punk-rock summer camp,” which began in 1995, will come to an end in 2018. “Today, with many mixed feelings, I am here to announce that next year will be the final, full cross-country run of the Vans Warped Tour ,” said founder Kevin Lyman.
Warped Tour died because punk culture sold out. “It’s a strange contradiction to be anti-establishment in punk rock when it’s, like, sponsored by Target, and brought to you by Wal-Mart,” The Used’s Bert McCracken told VICE News. “It’s all horseshit.”
Kevin Lyman, co-creator of the Vans Warped Tour as well as the Mayhem Festival, appears to be planning big things for the return of live music in 2021 . It has now been confirmed that the festival will officially return in 2021 , and have released a statement on social media announcing the postponement.

For 24 years, the Warped Tour created spaces for metal, punk and ska fans to meet their idols and mosh together under the hot sun: Each summer, about 70 bands and artists would play in some 40 locations, welcoming hundreds of thousands of tattooed concertgoers clad in band tees and Vans checkered slip-ons.
Warped Tour has announced its 2018 lineup. The tour’s final cross-country run includes several bands that have performed over the tour’s past 24 years, including All Time Low, Simple Plan, Sum 41, Taking Back Sunday and the Used.
