The Vans Warped Tour is over forever. Cue the tears.

All good things must come to an end. The last-ever Warped Tour stop happened Sunday at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida, bringing the 24-year-old festival to an end.

Here’s what happened.

1. Pennywise wraps things up

Because they were on the first Warped Tour, it seemed right to have Pennywise go on last on Sunday. They burned through a 34-minute set.

2. Every Time I Die wouldn’t let it go

ETID has been another Warped Tour fixture and really, really wanted to be the last band. Even though their power got cut, at least one member kept playing even as roadies started striking the stage. Trivia question: What was the last song ever played on the Warped Tour? “Map Change” by Every Time I Die.

3. A final note from organizers
