Here's the Lineup for Vans Warped Tour 2018 in Phoenix

Get your goodbyes ready. As you've probably heard, Vans Warped Tour will mount its final cross-country festival this summer. So when the 2018 Warped Tour, presented by Journeys, comes to Phoenix's Ak-Chin Pavilion on June 28, it's likely to be a rager.

That's because the lineup will include local rockers Doll Skin and The Maine, Buffalo scream rock darlings Every Time I Die, and party ska legends Reel Big Fish.

After that, it's not clear what will happen with the event. But it's a big deal that it's ending. Warped Tour has been going strong since its founding in 1995 by Kevin Lyman. "I truly am happy to get the chance to travel around the country one more time to thank you for your support, and bring you another best day ever," Lyman says in a press release.

Joining the aforementioned bands in Phoenix will be 3OH!3, the genre-refusing Canadians in Simple Plan, and The Used, as well as a number of heavy hitters on the Mutant Red Dawn and Mutant White Lightning stages.

Besides entertaining and dehydrating, it looks like this year's Warped Tour will be educational, too.

A slew of nonprofits and educational workshops are on the roster this year, including the FEND Movement (Full Energy, No Drugs) in partnership with the Preventum Initiative, which encourages youth to stand against opioids. Other organizations will be involved, too, including A Voice For The Innocent, American Red Cross, Hope For The Day.

Gates for the Phoenix show will open at 11 a.m. Tickets start at $49. They'll be available at the door or through the Vans Warped Tour website starting March 8. "Super Fan" bundles – which are general admission tickets with a lanyard, laminate, poster, and music comp download – are on sale now for $100.

Here is a breakdown of who's playing what stage at the 2018 Vans Warped Tour:
