Kevin Lyman founded the Warped Tour in 1995. The annual punk and hardcore fest just launched its 20th anniversary tour. Lyman, with some help from Diffuser.fm contributor Michael Haskoor, shares some things you may not know about the long-running music caravan.
When Sublime joined the first tour, there was a rule: no dogs or friends. They broke both of them and were asked to temporarily leave the tour.
During the 1998 Warped Tour in New Zealand, everyone slept in tents or at Boy Scout camps.
A typical night at the Warped BBQ includes 300 hot dogs, 300 hamburgers and 100 veggie burgers.
Myspace couldn't afford the $100 fee for a table at its first year at Warped.
Only two crew members from the first Warped Tour remain: Shelly Lynn (who owns Tada catering) and Mitch Alden (a stage manager who worked with Sublime).
