The traveling rock music festival, Vans Warped Tour, celebrated its final cross-country tour in 2018, but founder Kevin Lyman announced that the festival isn’t quite done yet.
Next year will be Vans Warped Tour’s 25th anniversary, and although it will not embark on a full tour, select shows will pop-up throughout the summer. In a tweet earlier today, Lyman said the only solid details right now include a Cleveland show on June 8, along with east coast shows from June 29 to 30 and west coast shows from July 20 to 21.

While no other details have been revealed at this time, it’s likely that Warped Tour veterans will take the stage. The 2018 festival included nearly 70 bands including big-name artists like We the Kings, All Time Low, Simple Plan, Bowling For Soup, The Used, Sum 41, and Taking Back Sunday.
“The enduring spirit of the Vans Warped Tour remains as bright as ever, continuing to inspire creativity and ambition in new and exciting ways as we prepare for a 25th anniversary celebration in 2019,” Lyman said in a statement on the festival’s website.
