CAN ROCKSTAR ENERGY DISRUPT FESTIVAL REPLACE VANS WARPED TOUR?
Although the peak of these musical genres has passed, Emo, Screamo, Post Hardcore, Metalcore etc., has continued to showcase a loyal following as well as inspire a new generation of fans.
Vans Warped Tour has been the king of summer music festivals in these genres for years and relatively without any competition. 2018 marked the last year of Warped Tour in its traditional touring festival format. This is year they ran the festival in a more common multi-day weekend format in 2 locations, Mountain View (California) and Atlantic City (New Jersey).
