San Francisco, CA, (January 28, 2019) – After a successful final cross-country run in 2018, the Vans Warped Tour will make only three US appearances in 2019 including a triumphant return to the Bay Area for a special 25th Anniversary 2-day event on Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21 at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA.
.
Fans can expect the heart of the Warped Tour experience to be intact, but on a much larger scale over 2 full days. 50+ bands across multiple stages, extreme sports ranging from skateboarding to motocross, and an exhibit of art that has come out of the tour’s history.
.
“With the [Vans Warped Tour] 25th Anniversary events, we want to bring the atmosphere of a classic Warped Tour show, but on a scale that our fans simply could not get with a national tour ” explains Lyman, “The bands, the special attractions, everything – we want to bring back elements that have made the Warped Tour, Warped Tour, over the past 25 years.”
.
It’s only fitting that Warped Tour would choose the Bay Area’s most iconic concert venue – Shoreline Amphitheatre – as the exclusive Western United Stated location for one of its only three 25th Anniversary events nationwide. The Bay Area almost became an instant second home to the event that got its start in the punk community of Southern California.
..
“I think probably close to half the bands on the first Warped Tour had some tie to the Bay Area,” remembers Lyman, “there was the up-and-coming band The Deftones, and then of course the Fat Wreck [Chords] roster – Good Riddance, No Use For A Name, Face to Face, and Tilt.”
.
From there, the Vans Warped Tour went on building its legacy; eventually playing sold out shows with 20,000+ attendees at Pier 30-32, AT&T Park, and the iconic Shoreline Amphitheatre. All the while, helping to launch the careers of area bands like Rancid, The Donnas, AFI, The Matches, Set Your Goals, and most recently, The Story So Far.
.
Pre-sales for the Vans Warped Tour 25th Anniversary event will begin on Monday, February 28th and tickets will be available to all on Friday, March 1st. The band lineup and special attractions will be announced on Friday, March 1st. Tickets will be available at LiveNation.com.

About Vans Warped Tour:
The Vans Warped Tour was 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 grew to include a multitude of genres, including metal, hip hop, reggae, pop and more. It established itself as 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.
.
The tour also cemented its place in history by bringing alternative rock and skate culture from the underground to the forefront of global youth culture, while at the same time helping those in need through non-profit and eco initiatives.
.
Over the past two decades, Vans Warped Tour built a legacy as the must attend summer festival for rock and music lovers alike. Since its start in 1995, it provided a platform for established as well as up-and-coming artists, with alumni including blink182No Doubt, Sublime, Beck, Katy Perry, NOFX, Limp Bizkit, Black Eyed Peas, Green Day, Eminem, Yellowcard, Bad Religion, and countless others.
.
Alternative Press readers voted the Vans Warped Tour as the “Best Tour/Festival” and Rolling Stone called it “America’s Most Successful Festival”.
.
