When Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman announced that 2018 will be the final full-cross-country tour, he mentioned he wanted to get the biggest lineup the tour has ever seen. With the recent lineup announcement, it seems that he fell short of that expectation.

Massive bands like Blink-182, Paramore or the return of My Chemical Romance were heavily rumored for weeks to no avail.

The official Warped Tour Twitter account stomped out those rumors by tagging six bands and giving the reason why they will not be on the tour. These bands included the aforementioned Blink-182, Paramore and My Chemical Romance while also including the All-American Rejects, Yellowcard and Say Anything. The original tweet has since been deleted, however a lot of the comments between Warped, band members and fans still remain.

The bands that will be joining the tour for its last run were announced on March 1 via promotional video on the official media pages.

Despite not living up to the biggest of expectations, Warped Tour did manage to land veterans Every Time I Die, We the Kings and Simple Plan who will be playing a record 12th time on the tour.

Along with the 68 performers that will be on the tour Warped Tour mentioned that more special guests are to be determined. The bands will be split between six stages including two main stages.

All of the acts that are lined up to take the main stage have played on the tour before, with the exception of Frank Turner, who will be playing three shows from July 24-26.

Some of the biggest names that will be joining the tour will only be playing select dates or small portions of the tour. Bands like All Time Low, The Used and Beartooth will only be playing a small group of shows in a row. Some groups are only playing a small selection of dates that may not be consecutive Warped dates. The Interrupters, Less than Jake and Knocked Loose are notable names to fall in this category.

A pair of bands will only be playing a single show.

Sum 41 is joining the tour for the show in Toronto on July 17. The band said in a post on Instagram that since the idea of the band started at the Toronto Warped show in 1996, it is only appropriate that they play on the tour one last time. It will be the band’s seventh year appearing on
