Keep Warped Tour Going

This petition had 129 supporters

Warped Tour is ending in 2018. For those that don't know, Warped Tour is a Rock festival that travels around the United States and the UK every summer, and has been since 1995. Today (11/15/17), founder of Warped Tour, Kevin Lyman, announced that the festival will be ending after the 2018 tour. Again for those who don't know, there have been many iconic bands on the tour throughout the years, including Pierce the Veil, From Ashes to New, Hatebreed, and many more. A very large majority of these bands have helped thousands of people through there music. For many people, when they listen to these bands, whether it be alone in their room, or live on tour, it has helped them immensely. It has gotten them through the toughest times in their lives. Many of these people are under the age of 18. And for many of that demographic (13-18), the music is what has saved them time and time again. It has helped people grieve, recover, and even prevented suicides worldwide. And many, if not all of these people, go to Warped Tour year after year because it's their happy place. They feel included. For one whole day (or more), these kids around the country that may very well only have the music, feel safe. They are happy, they are having the time of their lives, and they feel that they are included. This is because a very large majority of these kids are looked down upon by society. For some, it's their fashion sense. Others, there home life is revealed to their peers, and they are torn apart every day for that. But when they attend a Warped Tour concert, none of that matters. It's their day. Their time. And nobody who's at that show will turn them away or tell them they're nothing. If Warped Tour stops, there very well may be a rise in teeb depression and even suicide. Help these kids. Save them. Music Saves Lives.
