Warped Tour 25th anniversary festival locations announced
As mentioned, Warped Tour is no longer a touring festival but plans to celebrate their 25th anniversary with three events this year, one of the West Coast, one in the Midwest, and one on the East Coast. The venues have now been announced: Mountain View, CA's Shoreline Amphitheatre on July 20 & 21, Cleveland's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on June 8, and NJ's Atlantic City Beach on June 29 & 30.
They're promising "50+ bands across multiple stages, extreme sports ranging from skateboarding to motocross, and an exhibit of art that has come out of the tour’s history." Founder Kevin Lyman says:
With the [Vans Warped Tour] 25th Anniversary events, we want to bring the atmosphere of a classic Warped Tour show, but on a scale that our fans simply could not get with a national tour “ explains Lyman, “The bands, the special attractions, everything – we want to bring back elements that have made the Warped Tour, Warped Tour, over the past 25 years.
