Vans Warped Tour Founder Kevin Lyman
Weds, April 3 - 7pm - SUB Ballroom - Free Admission
In 1994, the Warped Tour started out when Kevin Lyman, a 3-year Lollapalooza veteran, put a handful of his favorite South California punk and ska bands, including Sublime and No Doubt, on a bus and embarked on tour. Considering cancelling the event for summer 1995, Lyman was approached by the Vans Shoe Company to put together a skating festival. Seeing the obvious connection, Lyman jumped at the chance to incorporate their idea into his Warped Tour, leading to the longest-running annual tour in North America: The Vans Warped Tour. He has since gone on to create the Taste of Chaos Tour, Mayhem Tour, Down From the Mountain Tour, Sprite Liquid Mix Tour, Coachella and Stagecoach Campgrounds and much more. Listen to Kevin share his stories about the music business, bands and crazy tour moments. - Kevin's website: http://kevinlyman.com/
