We’re quickly approaching the 25th anniversary Warped Tour shows in Cleveland, Atlantic City and Mountain View. While the lineup is in place and many tickets have been sold, founder Kevin Lyman is now offering up a bit more information with a behind-the-scenes look.

Yesterday, Lyman revealed he was heading to Atlantic City to meet with Live Nation on the plans for the upcoming two-day event.

“12.5 hours later and made it, looking forward to spending the day in Atlantic City with the livenation crew going through the site for @VansWarpedTour will send out a few photos!”

A Twitter user asked Lyman if Warped attendees will have access to the neighboring boardwalk. Lyman responded, “I am meeting with them today.”

Today, Lyman made good on that promise and began posting some images from the site. Among them was a general shot of the beach and a sneak peek of the map.

Lyman shared them with some solid advice for people complaining that Warped Tour gets too hot.

“Had great meeting in Atlantic City, this is going to be a lot of fun. If it is hot you will be able to jump in for a swim, no more “oh it is so hot I am dying @VansWarpedTour.” Worked on map today and mainstage will go against the pier.”

When questioned that the beach will be open, Lyman reminded a fan it is actually on the beach and there will be lifeguards.

Another Warped Tour fan asked Lyman about what appeared to be several barricades throughout the crowd.

“Those are 200 ft apart with 28,000 we have to have them just breaks in the crowd,” he explained.
