Warped Tour 2018 is the Last Lineup. Is Live Music Doomed?
Kevin Lyman, founder of Warped Tour, recently stated in an interview with Billboard that the summer festival would be coming to an end in 2018. The end of Warped Tour is a major revelation that will have ramifications felt throughout the music industry. However, in the interview with Billboard, Kevin Lyman said something else that I think might have even bigger ramifications for the future of live music of all genres.
Kevin Lyman cited a decrease in younger concertgoers in the 14-17 age range. Although his personal evidence is specifically from Warped Tour numbers, this is a trend being observed industry-wide across all genres. If these younger teenagers never get into the habit of going to concerts, the self-replenishing nature of local music scenes might come to an end.
