  • Fans weren't afraid to get wet during Warped Tour 2017 at Blossom.
It's OK to get emotional punk fans, festival season will never be the same again. Yesterday, Vans Warped Tour founder and producer Kevin Lyman announced the event would cease its full run of stops after next year.
For 23 years, the Vans Warped Tour has brought veteran punks and emo teens together into scorching hot outdoor venues. Huge bands like No Doubt, Bad Religion, Fallout Boy and Blink 182 all played the event, as well as a lot of mostly unknown groups, who may have even gone to your high school.

The tour comes to Blossom Music Center once more on July 19. After 2018, it's unclear what the festival will look like exactly (although Billboard tried to get as much out of Lyman as possible), but as it's the last of its kind, next summer's turnout could be one of the biggest in years.
