Ticket Giveaway: Vans Warped Tour | Sponsored by: Live Nation | Coming to Vinoy Park St. Petersburg| Friday, July 3, 2015

by • June 28, 2015

Lace up your Vans and prep your snapback, kiddos. It’s festival season, which for many of you scene teens, it’s probably your first time stepping into the sweltering side of the pop-punk summer explosion that is the Vans Warped Tour Up to 100 bands alternate 30-minute sets on July 3 (win tickets below) with outdoor energy that can be heard across Tampa Bay (literally, it echoes across the water).

A long time ago, when pop punk ruled my iPod nano and Taking Back Sunday was considered a Warped Tour headliner act, I, too, was a beginner at pop punk shows and festivals–and Warped was my favorite.

Since 1995, Vans has dominated the scene, indulging teens and vet fans alike in the bliss (or blister) of summer alt-punk-indie-etc. jams. Now, the bands that once dotted the side stages are headliners, including the veteran pop act Metro Station, classic alt-emo outfit Matchbook Romance, trending acts Neck Deep and The Wonder Years; the hardcore favorite of ours, Senses Fail… *takes a deep breath* And probably dozens more that I couldn’t begin to list in one teaser.

Just check out this teaser for Warped 2015, featuring sets from top headliner acts, including Attila, Black Veil Brides, Memphis May Fire, and more:

Everyone has their Warped memories. For me, it’s screaming along to Story of the Year in 2008… and maybe that first time I saw someone crowd surf. I’m forever apologetic to the poor woman who ate a chunk of dirt that day due to my inadequacy. So brace yourself for the circle pits and keep your arms ready for the occasional surfer.

Check out one of my favorites, indie punk hard-hitter, Have Mercy. I can’t emphasize enough than in my previous review how excellent of a headliner they are and the compelling allure of their performance.

Yes, you will probably drop someone. And you’ll likely ingest too many French Fries and be a sweaty mess when you waltz up to Moose Blood hoping for a meet-and-greet. (Highly recommended– this is their first trip in the United States and it’s sure to be a treat).

Embrace the fact that it’s the middle of the summer and these bands are probably as much of a gross wreck as you are. Or maybe they’re just crooning perfection like Koji:

Give the small stages a shot. Yes, of course, the headliners are fantastic. But many of the bands along on tour rubbed pennies together for their cheap van, and are probably crashing one someone’s floor to keep up. So be spontaneous and check out some bands you’ve never heard before. It’ll enhance your own experience and theirs.

Before you get Warped, keep a few of my tips in mind while braving the sunshine for sick sounds:

  • Stay hydrated
  • Wear sunscreen
  • Carry cash
  • Bring a backpack for all of that merch.
  • Tip your roadies.
  • Make friends, but stranger danger, too.
  • Be mindful of moshing.

One last thought: before you dive head first off stage into the dirt, catch as many sets of adolescent anthems and hardcore romps as your heart desires- and don’t be afraid to explore the genre variety packed into Warped.
