Warped Tour is a huge touring music festival that travels every year across the nation including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Europe and Canada. Sponsored by Vans, this festival is held outdoors in venues like parking lots or fields. It started in 1994 around skateboarding competitions where the music evolved from alternative, ska music to include punk, hip-hop and rock. I went to this day-long event yesterday in Columbia, MD with my best friend, Eden and her boyfriend, ran into my old friend, Zakkiyya and even met new friends. It was sizzlin’ hot! I got to see all the coolest bands–Breathe Carolina, Falling in Reverse, Motionless in White, The Maine, Cute is What We Aim For, Four Year Strong and….(drumroll)…Mayday Parade! Warped Tour was an incredible, amazing experience. I’m making this my goal to see every summer and even make an adventurous goal to travel to other Warped Tour concerts in another state or country! Let’s do this again next year!
