Vans Warped Tour: A backyard cookout with 80-plus bands, extreme sports and fun, says founder Kevin Lyman | Vans Warped Tour | Scoop.it
Now older than many of those who will attend it, the Vans Warped Tour rolls into Blossom on Thursday. More than 80 bands will occupy eight stages during the daylong festival.
Sydney Euber's insight:

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.

This article is interesting because it explains the lifestyle of warped tour that most bands get only a 30 min set and constantly changing.And that its about 2 hour set up time and 2 hour bring down

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.

Sydney Euber's insight:

The summer of 2014 was the 20th anniversary of the Vans Warped Tour. It started out as strictly an American tour. Over the years it has grown and gained popularity. It has since spread a smaller leg of it's tour to Europe. I believe that it will only continue to grow, and will eventually spread to even more destinations.

Sydney Euber's insight:

Warped Tour is my favorite festival. I think it's really awesome that Full Sail plays a part in this tour, and that students can work in their tent and at the Acoustic Basement stage. As a Show Production student, I think it's really great to see how my degree can be applied to settings like this.

I really love being a Full Sail student and I find it so cool that my school plays a part in the Vans Warped Tour. Seeing what the degrees we earn here could do for us is awesome. As a sponsor, Full Sail always has a part in the Warped Tour. Students are able to work at their tent and Acoustic Basement stage.

Vans Warped Tour Will Begin Announcing 2015 Bands, Artists

Vans Warped Tour Will Begin Announcing 2015 Bands, Artists | Vans Warped Tour | Scoop.it
Warped has already announced its full itinerary, but fans will need to wait one month longer to get info on performers.
Sydney Euber's insight:

The great thing about Warped Tour is that it doesn't just disappear after the summer is over. A few months after the tour ends, next year's dates are announced. A little while after that, they start releasing the next year's line up of performers. They keep releasing more information over the gap of time between the actual tours. This keeps fans invested and excited. They can plan for the next tour months in advance, and it gives them something to look forward to.

Summer of Hope - Suicide Prevention on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour

Summer of Hope - Suicide Prevention on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour | Vans Warped Tour | Scoop.it
Summer of Hope is about pressing the conversation on suicide and mental health, raising awareness, providing education and resources on the Vans Warped Tour

Via Roberta McDonnell, Jack Varnell
Sydney Euber's insight:

Vans Warped Tour is about a lot more than just music. This tour is also the stage for many charities and awareness groups. This is an example of one group raising awareness for suicide prevention. There are also groups there to raise awareness about breast cancer, and a charity looking to stop the child wars in Africa. I think it's really great that this tour can be used to connect with so many people about so many issues.

Suicide awareness and prevention through music: Music is a universal language and one which has strong resonances with youth culture - a way in?
