In this article the founder of warped tour shares his experience and how warped tour came to be.  He shares his runaway stories, life after college, and how he worked up from being a roadie.

Kevin Lyman is a huge influence in my career. If Warped didn't exist, I probably wouldn't be at Full Sail. When he started Warped, he didn't even have the money to fund it, but then Vans decided to sponsor them, and now its the tour of the summer. Warped turns 21 this year.

i love how many bands get to be a part of warped tour.

Madison Altonji's curator insight, November 7, 2014 10:36 PM

Warped tour feels a lot like a family to almost everyone who is a part of it. There is a very strong sense of community between the fans and the bands. Warped Tour is the longest running tour and it is what a lot of people spend their year looking forward to. The tour is a big deal and a major production for the crew and founder, Kevin Lyman. They describe it as building and taking down a small city everyday.

Warped Tour started out as a way for a few small bands to gain exposure. It has since turned into a huge tour with around 80 bands and 8-10 stages. Each year the line up changes, and it is still used by some bands to jump start their careers and gain exposure. With many different genres of music presented, it attracts a variety of different music lovers. Warped Tour has created a dedicated community of musicians and music lovers alike.

Personally going to Vans Warped tour it is something that I'm glad I got to experience at least once, but never want to go back to. It was humid and probably 90 degrees outside and I barely had any water but I wanted to see my favorite bands more then anything in the world. This honestly was not the best way to see the bands I wanted to see. I would much rather stick to world tours or smaller tours.
