Variety has reported that the Vans Warped Tour will film a four-part series for the touring festival’s final run.
A collaboration between Anthem Films, Dola Media Group and Warped, the series is being presented as a four-part series that looks at the history and vast influence of the tour, which has hosted virtually every punk-rock act of the past three decades (along with less-likely artists including Beck, Katy Perry and Eminem). Paramore’s Hayley Williams has said she “grew up” on the tour.
“The documentary that we’re putting together is really about the legacy of the tour,” director DJay Brawner tells Variety. “Of course, this year being the final year it’s important for us to capture moments from the culmination, but what we’re really trying to put together is a story about how the tour started and grew over the last 24 years, with all of it culminating with the final day and what that means for this team of people, the future of the brand and everything in between.
“So what we’re really trying to put together is something where we celebrate the faces of the tour, artists like Blink-182, Limp Bizkit, No Doubt, Fall Out Boy, Katy Perry, Taking Back Sunday — the list goes on and on.”
