During a recent interview with the Stranger, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman commented on how new rules and regulations may be implemented for next year’s run.
On specific changes that will be coming to the tour, he said, “Next year we're going to have no kids on this tour. It’s going to be really tough if you want to be on this tour and are 21 and under. Whether it's the artist, crew… anyone.” To be clear, it looks like Lyman is referring to just bands and crew.
“This feel [sic] like the year that we're transitioning into something… else. I don't know what it is, because you never know what it is, but I feel like we're transitioning to something,” said Buddy Nielsen of Senses Fail, when speaking on the tour’s future.
UPDATE: Lyman says he was misquoted by the Stranger.
Once again mis-quoted. said I would take a hard look and bands and crew being under 21 no age limit at the show.
