Ernie Ball

My dad Sterling met Kevin almost 20 years ago, and created a platform to provide undiscovered artists the chance to play live with the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands.

Heading into the 19th Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands, we’ve built a massive groundswell of loyal customers and fans through our activation, stages, and platform.

Rarely do you find great friends, who share a common vision and have the ability to make a difference….I know I can say,  there hasn’t been a more significant marketing vehicle for Ernie Ball.

Brian Ball, Ernie Ball

Invisible Children

Over the last 8 years, Invisible Children has proudly partnered with 4Fini and the legendary Vans Warped Tour.

In the 6 years leading up to one of our most successful campaigns, KONY 2012, we were able to develop a massive ground swell of supporters through meeting thousands of young people face-to-face all over the United States and Canada.

They helped build the world's largest movement of people advocating on behalf of the victims of Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army.

Without their ongoing years of support, Invisible Children would not have been as successful in our mission. That's the truth.”

Alex Collins, Strategic Partner Manager

Fuse TV

Working with team 4Fini is like working with your own in-house agency. Fuse has been a media partner for ten years; we’ve collaborated on every imaginable execution from inflatable caricature waterslides, live streaming, and two seasons of a reality series starring the entire crew and hundreds of fans and bands. When we pitch them an idea, they pitch us back a better one. When I think we’ve run out of ideas, 4Fini invents new ones.

Vans Warped Tour and Rockstar Mayhem are not concert tours, rather celebrations of unique cultures.   Those kids attend every year not because of their favorite bands, but because they know their best-boy-girl-friends are all already going. Kevin Lyman and team are really summer’s “Pied Pipers” for millennial.

David Weier, Music Strategy & Partnerships at Fuse TV

To Write Love On Her Arms

To Write Love On Her Arms has been involved with Warped Tour since 2007. We have done the full tour every year since, noticing exponential success, year after year.

As an organization, partnering with 4Fini was one of the most strategic decisions that TWLOHA has made. Over the last 7 years, Warped has enabled us the incredible opportunity to engage, activate and connect with new and recurring supporters on a very individual as well as large scale across 40+ cities in such a short period of time.

Every year we notice how the tour has boosted our visibility and recurring supporters, keeping them loyal throughout the year. While the roots of Warped are very grassroots, the platform that the festival offers for sponsors, non-profits and even bands offers is premier.

4Fini have always done an incredible job at bringing in some of the best talent, bands and brands into the festival that always ensure that we have a great and active audience to engage with.

In addition, its attendees perceive the Warped brand so positively that to be associated with the festival has helped bolster the perception and image of TWLOHA year after year.

Working with the 4Fini team is always so refreshing. Over the years, our friendship and professional relationship has grown, so that it feels like they are always as invested in our cause/brands representation and presentation as we are.

It is without coincidence that we summer is our favorite season. We look forward to spending our time with the community that Warped brings together, both engaging attendees and everyone on the tour.

Jason Blades, Music/Events Coordinator


Kevin has always believed in helping raise awareness for charitable organizations that make sense for his artists, crew and fans to appreciate and support. MusiCares is an organization that has helped many of his artists and crew. He was able to see the services we began providing to many other tours and festivals early on, and wanted to make a bigger impact on the community and help raise money and awareness for our organization.

The visibility for our organization with a younger population is a great benefit to our Organization. Also as in past years, Kevin Lyman has generously provided financial support to MusiCares via ticket sales and booth/will call donations from each Vans Warped Tour date.

MusiCares partnering with Vans Warped Tour has been beneficial not just by sharing our message with the masses, but also by actually putting our message into action and helping many people in the music industry. Through the use of the mentioned Safe Harbor Rooms, MusiCares has been able to directly help artists with recovery. In addition, working with the Vans Warped Tour has heightened the exposure of MusiCares and has shared our cause with a broader audience.

Erica Krusen, LMFT, Senior Director - MusiCares/MAP Fund


4Fini is always an absolute pleasure to work with for a variety of reasons. They communicate well, deliver whatever we come at them with and are ultimately good people that have our intentions at heart.

They also take care of our specific needs and unique tactics to get kids to interact with our on site presence. Basically, we feel like they are an extension of our organization and think the world of them.

Ray Harkins, Senior Strategic Partnerships Manager


For 14 years, our partners at 4Fini have gotten us access to vibrant, relevant and constantly-evolving Vans Warped Tour venues—exactly where our target naturally hangs. Being able to engage and share our life-saving messages is unspeakably awesome. We <3 Warped Tour!

Our truth brand has evolved – in 2000, 23% of teens smoked. Now it is down to 9%. We’d like to think that our work with 4Fini has contributed to these statistics. 4Fini is constantly evolving to stay on point with their audience and we have followed suit in the way that we communicate with our audience. With our new strategic approach geared to rallying the 91% to help us #FinishIt once and for all, we had to make some changes to upcoming tour plans. 4Fini realizes the importance of our mission and has been generous enough to help us make sure that changes happen. We are always grateful to have the fortune to work with partners as opposed to mere vendors or agents.

Melissa Casey, Director, Marketing 

Rockstar Energy Drink

The partnership we’ve created with Rockstar Mayhem Festival has been invaluable. With an ever-growing captive audience each summer, we’ve been able to reach not only our core consumers but introduce innovation and new flavors to new consumers as well.  In 2008, in the festival’s year of inception, Rockstar Energy offered a portfolio of nine flavors. Today, Rockstar has grown to offer twenty-seven flavors.

Over the past six years, it’s been exciting to watch many of the bands grow alongside our brand and the tour itself. Each year, we look forward to spending the summer on the road with a new group of bands and meet all the fans and our loyal consumers.

Chelsea Coffe, Music Marketing Manager


We have worked with 4Fini and Warped tour since the very first year of Warped back in 1995.  The Warped tour is the center of our marketing campaigns for new artists, existing artists and our brand.

We know that every year there will be new kids coming to the tour that are learning about the bands and brands that they will support for the rest of their lives.  Through 4Fini, we are in on the ground floor.

The 4Fini team delivers for us - plain and simple, the do what they say.  Great follow through and always coming with new ideas to help us reach these young impressionable fans.

Dave Hansen, General Manager Epitaph and ANTI- Records since 1996


Kevin is an innovator, millions of people have seen his vision and thousands of bands have had a chance to live their dream through his.

We would not have grown the way we have without the Vans Warped Tour and Kevin Lyman’s beliefs and passion.

Steve Van Doren, Vans, Inc


The Vans Warped Tour is the opportunity to share a lasting, memorable experience with our consumers and employees in an environment that captures the spirit of youth culture.
