The Vans Warped Tour bid its farewell at Jones Beach Theater after 24 years on the road.

While many fans might miss the diversity of the show, founder and producer Kevin Lyman says all things must come to an end.

Lyman says he has been proud to work with so many artists over the years, but it’s time for a change.
