Just a few days ago, the final lineup for the 2018 Vans Warped Tour presented by Journeys was revealed in a video from the festival, which can be found below. The final cross-country run will feature acts who have frequently played Warped Tour over the last 24 years as well as up-and-coming acts. Set to play are bands including Simple Plan, 3OH!3, Mayday Parade, The Maine, We The Kings, Reel Big Fish, Underoath, Grayscale, Tonight Alive, and Real Friends, among others.
Kicking off on June 21st in Pomona, CA and wrapping on August 5th in West Palm Beach, FL, the tour will feature newly named stages such as Mutant Red Dawn and Mutant White Lightning which will showcase the best in heavy and hardcore music. Attendees will also be introduced to the FEND Movement (Full Energy, No Drugs), launched in partnership with the Preventum Initiative, which aims to empower young people to make a stand against opiods. Other non-profits and educational workshops at the festival will include A Voice For The Innocent, American Red Cross, Hope For The Day, and To Write Love on Her Arms, to name a few.
“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.” – Sierra Lyman.
