Kevin Lyman’s job title is well known to most people who listen to alternative music. He is the founder of the Vans Warped Tour; a touring festival that thousands of music fans across the country look forward to every year. We wanted to find out what people don’t know about Kevin: What does he actually do during a day on Warped? And what insight and knowledge does he have to offer those who aspire to work in the music industry?

We had a chance to talk with Kevin at the Cleveland date of the tour and he let us know why hard work, perseverance, and patience are so important to being successful, what he does to keep the Warped Tour running, and what it’s like to be recognized in public by fans and parents alike. Watch the interview below to hear what Kevin had to say. (And click here to see our profile on Kevin and his daughter/Warped colleague Sierra.)
