Warped Tour marks 23 years of music, philanthropy and education

Rapper Watsky is part of the Vans Warped Tour.

Over the course of 23 years, the Vans Warped Tour has continued to solidify itself as the must-attend festival over summer for rock lovers.

The traveling tour makes two stops in the Land of Enchantment – on Wednesday, June 21, in Albuquerque and on Aug. 1 in Las Cruces.

“As we enter our 23rd year on the road, continuing our mission of music, philanthropy and education is what I look forward to most,” says Kevin Lyman, founder of the festival. “The Vans Warped Tour is not for all, but every summer I look forward to seeing those fans who do chose to come and engage and be a positive force in our community.”

The Vans Warped Tour also has opportunities to discover emerging acts, as well as to learn more about nonprofits and companies that are working to make a positive impact on the world.

In addition, the tour continues to host a wide array of educational workshops for attendees. This year, the tour is working with Teens With a Purpose, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Donate Life New England, Planned Parenthood, Keep a Breast, Testicular Cancer Foundation and Project HEAL.

Save Ferris will perform in Albuquerque.
