Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman says, “Last year when I visited Full Sail, I was blown away by their facilities. To be able to use them for our artist announcement webcast is a perfect way to start our 2016 partnership.”
“Since 2012, Full Sail’s relationship with the Vans Warped Tour has led to numerous internship opportunities for our graduates in roles ranging from live audio production to content reporters throughout the multi-city concert tour,” said Full Sail University’s VP of Alumni Relations/Event Producer, Jay Noble. “We are honored to host the 2016 Vans Warped Tour Lineup Announcement event on our campus at Full Sail Live, and look forward to more incredible experiences at the Warped Tour this summer.”
