Just Confirmed: No Age Limits on Warped Tour 2016!

kevin lymanWarped Tour lovers rejoice! In a new interview with The Gunz Show, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman has confirmed that both bands and fans under the age of 21 will be allowed to attend Warped Tour in 2016, following a misunderstanding last month; In August, the Stranger (a Seattle paper) had quoted him as saying “no kids on this tour.” Lyman quickly set the record straight and said he was misquoted by the paper.

“It was the last day of tour,” Lyman told Gunz of the misunderstanding. “I had just delt with some stuff, and this kid—sweet kid—had already written half of [his] story, he was just looking for a couple quotes to insert into it. And I said, ‘Man, I’m just gonna bring adults next summer out on tour. It would make my life a lot easier, in a sense.’ [Laughs] And all of a sudden, they inserted, and added ‘under 21 is not gonna be allowed at Warped.’ Are you crazy?! Warped has been about turning people on to music; getting them into festivals, getting them into a lifestyle that I think is [still] very, very good.”

“The good doesn’t get highlighted like it should because we don’t run around and tout it. This music is good for people. [And] yes, it has saved people’s lives,” Lyman added.

I think I could practically feel the entirety of North America let out a breath of relief after reading this, yes?
