Warped Looks Back: A Collection of Photos From Warped Tour Throughout The Years

Warped Looks Back: A Collection of Photos From Warped Tour Throughout The Years

UNDEROATH_VWT06b.jpg

Since 1995, the Vans Warped Tour has been bringing their groundbreaking festival across the United States every summer, shedding light on emerging artists and giving fans of all ages a chance to discover new music and see some of their favorite bands in a one of a kind setting. Artists such as Katy Perry, Eminem, AFI, Deftones, blink-182 and countless others have cut their teeth on Warped Tour before going on to find mainstream success. Even in its final year, Warped Tour continues to give up and coming artists a platform unlike any other. 

It all started in a hot parking lot in the middle of the summer, and twenty-three years later, that's where it will finally come to an end. In celebration of the final cross-country run of the Vans Warped Tour, we've gathered some of our favorite photos of previous years from The Prelude Press' staff photographers and friends. Enjoy some of our favorite photos from 1998 to 2006 all the way to 2017, featuring iconic artists like Green Day, Underoath, Gym Class Heros, Anti-Flag and many, many more.
