Yhdysvaltoja kiertävä Vans Warped Tour lopettaa: järjestetään viimeistä kertaa ensi vuonna

Yhdysvalloissa vuodesta 1995 asti järjestetty kiertävä -festivaali järjestetään ensi vuonna viimeistä kertaa. Festivaalia järjestävä promoottori Kevin Lyman, joka on aiemmin työskennellyt muun muassa Lollapalooza-festivaalin parissa, on kertonut Billboardille päätöksestään seuraavasti:

”We were doing fine, but we had a pretty big dip last year. It was that younger end of the demo… I talked to people after the tour and bands did great on merchandise, they had great crowds — everyone had good crowds in front of the stage. But that casual fan that’s learning how to go to a music festival — they were not there last summer. It was a really great show, sponsors were happy, but our attendance was down.”

”I’m looking to bring everyone a great show and have a great summer and connect with a lot of people, you know? For me, the saddest thing is I’ll be seeing sunrises and sunsets for the last time in a lot of those parking lots.”

”I truly look forward to seeing as many of you as possible during this final cross country run, and getting to thank you for your support on this wild adventure.”
