Learn More About The Project on
Variety.com

This summer, after twenty-four years, the Vans Warped Tour will make its final cross-country run. Founder Kevin Lyman announced this via a statement through the tour's official website late last year.
 
The Vans Warped Tour is the largest traveling music festival in the United States and the longest-running touring music festival in North America. Originally conceived by Lyman in 1995, as an eclectic alternative rock festival, with a focus on punk rock, over the years the tour has grown to include a multitude of genres, including metal, hip-hop, reggae, pop and more.
 
It remains one of the best tours to attend to discover emerging acts, to learn more about wonderful non-profits and companies who are working to make a positive impact on the world that surround them, and to meet like-minded friends.
 
Over the past two decades, Vans Warped Tour has built a legacy as the must-attend summer festival for rock and music lovers alike. Since its start it has provided a platform for established as well as up-and-coming artists, with past performers including blink182, No Doubt, Sublime, Beck, Katy Perry, NOFX, Limp Bizkit, Black Eyed Peas, Green Day, Eminem, Yellowcard, Bad Religion, and countless others.
 
Anthem Films, Dola Media Group and the staff at Vans Warped Tour have teamed up for the official Vans Warped Tour documentary, which will hopefully be released at the end of 2017. The documentary will be a 4-part series chronicling the rise, the fall, and the future of the tour and will be filmed during the tour's final expedition this summer.
 
The announcement was made first with Variety.com. The article can be seen at this link:

Director DJay Brawer of Anthem Films grew up in the Warped Tour ecosystem. "I've been a fan of the Vans Warped Tour since nearly the beginning," explains Brawner. "I'm honored to be able to play a part in telling the history of such an iconic tour that not only shaped my life, but shaped the lives of so many. Working with Kevin, the Warped Team, Dola, and Anthem Films has already been a great experience, and I'm looking forward to seeing where this project will take us."
 
"Dola Media is thrilled and honored to co- produce the official Vans Warped Tour documentary. Its meaning and place in music history is undeniable, and working directly with its visionary founder Kevin Lyman is a fan's dream come true," states Lauren Veteri of Dola Media.
 
Partnering with extraordinary director Djay Brawner, who has both a deep tour history, and the perfect aesthetic instincts for the soul of the story, makes this an inspired union," adds Anthony Hemsey of Dola Media.
 
An official release date for the project will be announced soon.

For its final run, the tour is thrilled to welcome back countless bands who have rocked Vans Warped Tour over the last 24 years including Reel Big Fish, Simple Plan, All Time Low, Four Year Strong, 3OH!3, Less Than Jake, Underoath, We The Kings, The Used, Tonight Alive and more. Adding to this year's lineup are up-and-coming acts such as State Champs, Trash Boat, Don Broco, Grayscale, Waterparks, Real Friends, and Movements. A special announcement video can be seen at
www.vanswarpedtour.com .


Also returning this summer are the newly named Mutant Red Dawn and Mutant White Lightning stages, showcasing the best in heavy and hardcore music: Chelsea Grin, MYCHILDREN MY BRIDE, Every Time I Die, Knocked Loose, The Amity Affliction, Ice Nine Kills, etc.


It was recently announced that Vans Warped Tour veterans Pennywise will be joining this final cross-country tour for a few special guest performances. Additional special guests will be announced soon to round out the final lineup for this 24th summer.


The Vans Warped Tour is the largest traveling music festival in the United States, and the longest-running touring music festival in North America. Originally conceived by founder Kevin Lyman in 1995 as an eclectic alternative rock festival, with a focus on punk rock, over the years the tour has grown to include a multitude of genres, including metal, hip hop, reggae, pop and more. It remains one of the best tours to attend to discover emerging acts, to learn more about wonderful non-profits and companies who are working to make a positive impact on the world that surround them, and to meet like-minded friends. 

Over the past two decades, Vans Warped Tour has built a legacy as the must attend summer festival for rock and music lovers alike. Since its start in 1995 it has provided a platform for established as well as up-and-coming artists, with past performers including blink182, No Doubt, Sublime, Beck, Katy Perry, NOFX, Limp Bizkit, Black Eyed Peas, Green Day, Eminem, Yellowcard, Bad Religion, and countless others.


In addition, the tour continues to host a wide array of amazing non-profits and educational workshops for attendees and 2018 will be launching the FEND Movement (Full Energy, No Drugs) in partnership with thePreventum Initiative. The FEND Movement empowers youth to make a stand against opioids. The FEND Movement aims to engage 50,000 young people between March and August 2018, giving them the chance to earn rewards and prizes as they increase their knowledge and change their attitudes and behaviors in relation to opioids. Youth can participate by downloading the Preventum app and on-boarding to the FEND campaign.

A Voice For The Innocent, American Red Cross, Hope For The Day, Feed Our Children Now!, Living The Dream Foundation, To Write Love on Her Arms, and truth will all be involved this summer, just to name a few. Fans can see their favorite bands as well as become educated on these causes and how they can help.


"I am very excited about the upcoming year. With it being the last tour, the non-profit presence will be as big as ever. Groups who have been out in the past will be coming out in more markets, and hopefully we will attract new non-profits," comments Sierra Lyman. "With more non-profits coming out there will be more options for our audience to hopefully get involved before, during, and after the tour. I am hoping that this last year encourages non-profits to partner with bands and for bands to partner with non-profits on their own events and tours once this summer is over."


The Entertainment Institute will return to the 2018 tour as well, hosting educational workshops and Q+A's hosted by the industry's most successful writers, artists, and photographers. More information regarding the artists conducting workshops will be available in April at
http://www.thinktei.com 


Also joining the tour this year as sponsors are dailyKARMA, Ernie Ball, Equal Vision Records, Full Sail University, Peta2, MusiCares, PRS Guitars, Hopeless Records, Viceland, Violent Gentlemen, Hope For The Day, and more.


"Kevin and the tour have touched so many lives through their commitment to giving back to the community," shares dailyKARMA CEO Patricia Dao. "They've been doing it long before it was the cool thing to do.  Our team is thrilled that dailyKARMA will be powering Warped Tour's online fundraising efforts this year."
