Setlist History: Warped Tour 1995

As we say farewell to the full, traveling stretch of the Vans Warped Tour, we're flashing back to the roots of 'punk rock summer camp.' The Warped Tour, which was first created in 1995 by Kevin Lyman, ran for 26 dates, kicking-off on August 4th at the Idaho Center in Boise, Idaho, and wrapping up a few months later on September 6th in Irvine, California. It wasn't until the following year, in the summer of 1996, that the tour gained a Vans sponsorship, adding their name to be the Vans Warped Tour.

The very first alternative rock filled lineup included bands like Quicksand, L7, Sublime, Deftones, No Use for a Name, Face to Face, Sick of it All, No Doubt, Guttermouth, Swinging Udders, and more. The music festival also featured pro-skaters, boarders and bikers, with a half pipe and street course for the sports. You'd be hard pressed to find this at this summer's final run of the tour. Check out the flyer for the first ever Warped Tour below:
