Less Than Jake, Sum 41, Reel Big Fish, Bowling For Soup to Play the Last Vans Warped Tour

by VVN Music

Four veteran bands, Less Than Jake, Sum 41, Reel Big Fish and Bowling For Soup are on the bill for the final Vans Warped Tour.

Started in 1995, the Warped Tour is the longest running touring music festival in the U.S., originally focusing on independent and punk bands but eventually branching out to a variety of forms of rock. The first year featured the Def Tones, L7, No Doubt and Sublime while the next year added Beck, Dick Dale, Fishbone, the Mighty Mighty Boss Tones and NOFX.

The festival grew over the years from a lineup of 16 in 1995 to 92 last year, playing 41 cities.

On November 15, 2017, producer Kevin Lyman announced that the 2018 tour would be the last, full tour for the festival, saying "I am so grateful to have worked with more than 1,700 bands over the last 23 summers. I wish I could thank every band that has played the tour."

This year's tour will start in Japan with headliners Korn, Limp Bizkit and Prophets of Rage before returning to North America for 38 final shows starting on June 21 and running through August 5.
