EP 98: Vans Warped Tour's Kevin Lyman: It never gets easy

Kevin Lyman has accomplished more in the last year than most people will in their whole lives. He’s the founder of the Vans Warped Tour, the nation’s biggest punk rock gathering for the last 22 years. Along the way, he’s created a number of other tours and festivals, supported dozens of social causes, and inspired countless young people to pursue their passions and find their voice. He’s also got an agency that helps brands connect with the amazing community he’s built.

What’s remarkable about Kevin is that it seems he works just as hard today as when he started. He still lives on the road, programs every show and even decides the set times. He’s even brought his family into the business. His oldest daughter manages the charities they bring on tour with hem.

Listen to our interview to learn how Kevin stays connected to his business after all these years. Make sure you share this one with a friend.
