The Warped Tour was a traveling rock tour that had toured the United States (including 3 or 4 stops in Canada) annually each summer from 1995 to 2018. It was the largest traveling music festival in the United States, and was the longest-running touring music festival in North America. The first Warped Tour took place in 1995, and the skateboard shoe manufacturer Vans became the main sponsor of the tour starting with the second tour in 1996, when it became known as the Vans Warped Tour. Although Vans continued to be the main sponsor and lended its name to the festival, other sponsors also participated with stages or other aspects of the festival sometimes being named after them.
