    Warped Tour’s Wilmington, NC date has been canceled.

    From the Vans Warped Tour team, the bands, and all of our sponsors, we are truly sorry that this had to happen. We were completely blind-sided by the city of Wilmington, NC and have tried to work through everything as fast as we could.

    Ahh... the hometown of Michael Jordan and primary filming location for Dawson's Creek.

    Side note: If you ever get the chance, definitely visit Wilmington. One of the hidden treasures of America. Absolutely beautiful city that seems untouched by modern times and feels like it came out of a book.

    are we still lucky to be here? Prestigious

    I'm confused and trying to decipher all the messaging around this - is it because Warped didn't sell enough tickets or because of facility/safety issues?

    My gf and I are trying to plan a time to visit there. Heard nothing but wonderful things about that place.

    Maybe some of the bands could play a small "secret" mini warped tour in the area that day for the fans

    Not sure if you've been to Savannah, GA or Charleston, SC but they are all absolutely lovely cities on the coast and within a few hours of each other. The drive is beautiful and those cities are quintessential Americana. It's like a Bruce Springsteen album come to life. Hope you are able to arrange a trip to Wilmington!

    My wife is from Wilmington originally and it really is an awesome little city. We actually are looking into moving down there eventually.

    I'd love some clarity on what exactly this means.

    This is happening in some sort of capacity. Details:

    I'm guessing multiple stages/timing of performances, crowd flow management, etc?

    Wilmingtons nice enough but it has a lot of issues in regards to how minorities/PoC/LGBTQ citizens are treated but its improved a lot when it comes to those issues over the past few years. I'm like 30 minutes away from Wilmington so I frequent it a lot. Downtowns pretty nice.

    Weird how vague theyre being about this. I guess it just boils down to theres really no where in Wilmington to hold a massive festival/tour like Warped unless you really branch out past the city limits.

    Very bizarre to imagine warped tour ever taking place in Wilmington haha

    On a side note Wilmington is beautiful. Too bad though, Warped was fun this year in Denver.
