After twenty-three years, iconic traveling summer festival Warped Tour will be coming to end. The tour's final installment will take place in 2018.

Founder Kevin Lyman had this to say: "Today, with many mixed feelings, I am here to announce that next year will be the final, full cross-country run of the Vans Warped Tour."

In a new interview with Billboard, Lyman cites "an evolving summer festival industry, a shrinking pool of bands, and declining ticket sales amongst its teenage demographic" as some of the reasons behind his decision.
