If you didn’t get the memo, this is the last summer for Vans Warped Tour as we know it—and we’re feeling all the feels. peta2 was born back in 2002 on Warped Tour, where we started off armed with paper petitions to help animals. We got the word out about our important mission by talking to artists on the tour and posting the interviews to Myspace. They looked something like this:

Over the past 16 years of touring, we’ve really grown and changed! We’re still helping animals, but now we’re using mobile-texting petitions. And we’re still supported by bands, but our videos look more like this:

While we may have grown up, one thing has always stayed the same: our knowledge that it’s wrong to hurt animals. They aren’t dinner or clothing or anything else for us to use—they’re individuals who can feel pain and suffer, just as we can. And YOU hold the power to make a huge difference for them.

Since 2002, Warped Tour attendees have helped us help animals in a ton of ways—including by questioning authority …

… taking a stand against animal testing …

… turning into superheroes and pledging to try vegan …

… and telling SeaWorld to free the animals.

Because of all the amazing people we’ve met over the years on Warped Tour, we’ve helped win victories, and together, we’ve made a positive impact on the lives of animals everywhere. Since it’s our Sweet 16, we’re kick-starting the party with a playlist—throwing it back to bands we’ve worked with on Warped Tour over the years—so that we can get pumped for all the great things we have planned for the future of animal rights!

    Enjoy these tunes all summer long and get active for animals with our final Warped Tour campaign: Like You, Only Different.
