The power of music is truly amazing. There aren't many things in this world that can bring so many strangers together for the joy of expressing appreciation towards live sound and emotion. This one was captured during @silentplanetband performance at @vanswarpedtour
At my lows stick to your guns music has always been there for me and I'm super thankful to have been able to see/capture them again doing what they love. See all photos from last years warped on the website as well as some video on the YouTube channel 🤘#foreverusagainstthemall
Happy merry birthday to my best friend ❤️ looking forward to the next wild adventure I have with you and what trouble we will get into next. Keep it weird my dude and I hope 20 is a killer (although it's not quite next year yet) I love you ❤️#ripwarpedtour
I got this bag at my first ever Warped tour like three days after this album came out almost 5 years ago. That was the day I discovered a lot of my favorite bands, and realized how important music really is. Call it a scene, call it a crowd, call it what you want. Music unites people, and for me, it’s where I always feel welcome. Since Warped is coming to an end, maybe it should take one more trip through the crowd with me. Thanks for the memories. @vanswarpedtour @abrband #ripwarpedtour#warpedtour#bands#metal#hardcore#tours#concerts
7 years ago this February I met my husband in this little hole in the wall venue called the Hangar 84. The band playing was Smash your Enemies. I have Jake Heaton to thank. I was at a rough stage in life, I had ended a bad relationship, I didn’t know who I was, or even where I was going. As I hear of Warped Tour ending I began to look back at my past. Music and good friends have gotten me through some really rough times. I’ve met some great people over the years and have memories that I’ll always hold dear. Here’s to the venues, the shows, and the bands I’ve seen over years #ripwarpedtour#smashyourenemies#pastpresentandfuture
NOOOOOOOOOOO😱 THIS makes me SO SAD! How old am I that Warped Tour is RETIRING?!?? What a bummer that all the future kids, current ones, and people who grew up with this won't be able to see sooooo many great bands all in one day anymore😩 This was always the send off to summer man and some of my favorite memories of all time😭😭 #whyyoudodistouskevin#ripwarpedtour#ytho @theataris say it ain't sooooo!
This is delayed, but it took me awhile to find my hard drive with all of my old pictures on it. Here are some never posted, deep cuts off my various iPhones of the 3 years I was on the Vans Warped Tour. So many friends, so much pizza. I could go on and on about the tour and what it means to me, but I'll just leave it at RIP. See y'all on the road sometime [hopefully] #ripwarpedtour
Tonight Alive - hearing that Warped Tour is coming to an end next year made sad, but also reminded me of all the amazing summers I spent at Lakewood Amphitheater. This is my favorite photo I’ve ever taken, I rushed to Right Foot Stage to capture Jenna in all her wonder at Warped Tour ‘16...
After this week's announcement that Warped Tour is to be no more I decided to look at some of my old pictures. So #throwback to Warped Tour 2006, my second Warped Tour, because I don't think I had a digital camera when I went to Warped in 05. I used to look forward to Warped Tour all year. I would carefully analyze the line up, watch Warped Wednesdays on Fuse all summer, and try to plan my day, knowing full well no planning would matter until I got there and checked the big red board. I'll never forget getting crushed by what looked and felt like everyone in attendance watching My Chemical Romance in 05 and Paramore in 07, seeing Silverstein, Bayside, and Motion City Soundtrack, three of my favorite bands to this day, for the first time, seeing The Wonder Years play Cardinals a week after they released it as a single and singing along with the crowd just as loudly as we sang the older songs, and so many more amazing performances and unique experiences. The heat, the sweat, the dust, the mud, the rain, it was always an adventure and I loved every second of it. I thought Warped would be around forever. I'm sad to see it go, but grateful that it's given me so many good memories. #foreverwarped#ripwarpedtour#sappypost#potatoqualityphoto#2megapixelcamera#ivetakenbetterpictureswithaflipphone
I know it took a few days, but this is a big deal for me. I've been going to the vans warped tour since 2015(first picture, yeah yeah i know) , and since then i've been 4 times. Every time has been something i will never forget. I'm very thankful that kevin lyman and all of the bands and staff that have been at @vanswarpedtour from the beginning to the end has given all of us wonderful people a chance to be somewhere that feels like home to me.
By now you’ve all heard that next year 2018, will be the last nation wide run for the Warped Tour.
We have a long history with @vanswarpedtour and we were on the very first one in 1995 with none of us knowing what to expect. Yeah, it was rough and raw but so much fun! We knew it was going to be something special.
It created this fantastic community for fans, bands and extreme athletes from different walks of life with the common thread of being the underdogs and living on the outside of society. But here in this place, we all fit in (even tho we, Sick Of It All, like to play the outsider among outsiders). We found ourselves back on Warped two years later in 1997 and to see how quickly it had grown was amazing! That was a great year for us and Warped, as we did the US tour, Warped Europe and Warped Japan and we made so many life long friends from those tours!
Fast forward twenty years and we find ourselves being asked to do Warped 2017! We had reservations, did we still fit in with what Warped morphed into? Are we relevant to it anymore? But as soon as we got there on that first day it was like nothing had changed. That community feeling and us against the world attitude was still there. We even met and made new friends who are now a big part of our lives!
So we would like to thank the Warped Crew and production staff and especially Kevin Lyman for putting up with us and inviting us to be part of this ground breaking festival.
@vanswarpedtour was always a fun time for me. It’s sad to see it go. I was able to get my foot on the door through warped and start doing what I love the most. Here’s a little collection of photos. Enjoy #vanswarpedtour#ripwarpedtour
