The lineup for the final Vans Warped Tour ever has been announced, and the performers include a bevy of current bands in the punk, rock and metal genres, as well as a few veterans. The 2018 touring lineup will feature Asking Alexandria, Black Veil Brides, Sum 41, Less than Jake, Simple Plan, All Time Low, Falling in Reverse, The Used, Beartooth, Bowling for Soup, Crown the Empire, Frank Turner, Taking Back Sunday, We the Kings, Reel Big Fish, Motionless in White and Mayday Parade, among others.

The Vans Warped Tour got its start back in 1995. As it continued, it built a legacy of bringing young bands, many in the punk genres, to cities across North America ever summer. Bands such as Fall Out Boy, Blink-182 and My Chemical Romance got their star on the tour. Now, it’s the longest-running touring music festival in North America. So, it’s safe to say, Warped Tour is going out on top.

“I truly am happy to get the chance to travel around the country one more time to thank you for your support, and bring you another best day ever,” Vans Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman said in a statement.

The 2018 Van Warped Tour will set of starting June 21 in Pomona, California, and continue through an Aug. 5 show in West Palm Beach, Florida. For the complete lineup and ticket information, head to VansWarpedTour.com.
