Kevin Lyman Discusses Warped Tour's Balance of Old and New

Kevin Lyman Discusses Warped Tour's Balance of Old and New

With Warped Tour 2017 kicking off this weekend, Fuse sat down with none other than festival founder Kevin Lyman for a look at this year's lineup. The man behind North America's longest-running touring festival also discussed why he switches up set times every night and his plans for future lineups.

"This summer's lineup is looking at some artists that maybe haven't been around in a long time," Lyman says, listing OG acts like GWARPlain White T's and Sick Of It All. He's also stoked to introduce fans to U.K. acts Creeper and Sonic Boom Six, as well as hardcore feminist punk group War on Women.
