Pretty sad to hear the news about the @vanswarpedtour today. Thank you @kevinlyman for putting the whole thing together and making it so fun! I will always be grateful to have experienced this tour and thank you to @omandm for making it possible. I wouldn't have wanted to experience it with any one else! RIP Warped 😥 🎉🍻🤘🏻
So fucking thankful to have played this tour two years in a row with my best friends. Made so many great friends, and I'm so glad that BSR was able to be apart of an epic era for punk/rock music. Really hoping future rock bands will be able to organically grow without such a huge marketing opportunity that was actually within reach. Thank you Kevin Lyman, VWT, & my band boyfriends for making the end of my teenage years dope as fuck and something to really remember. ☁️✨💗 #badseedrising#ripwarpedtour
(2016) Words cannot describe how upset I am for the discontinuation of Warped Tour after the final run. I understand there are probably good reasons as to why, but I will still mourn. This is the best day of the year for me and plenty more. A whole day dedicated to outstanding bands, amazing experiences, and filled with loving, accepting people. An atmosphere unattainable at any other concert. You will be missed. #ripwarpedtour
with the recent news of the extinction of the @vanswarpedtour, i took a stroll down memory lane with this one. @moonracer1 took me to my first warped tour in 2000, almost 18 years ago. we got to see green day, the mighty mighty bosstones, NOFX, AFI. warped tour became a dream of mine to play, which i never accomplished. but i’ve been able to enjoy attending the tour many times over the last almost two decades. i’ve been lucky enough to watch my best friend’s bands play the main stages, met a ton of new friends, and enjoyed growing up in ways that many kids nowadays won’t get to experience.
thank you @vanswarpedtour for being a huge part of my growing up. #ripwarpedtour 🙏🏼
@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
Make me believe in something more than this fever dream.... @movementsofficial
San Diego 2017 @vanswarpedtour #RIPWARPEDTOUR
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
Riff Raff @jodyhighroller in black and white. I just had to check him out live at @vanswarpedtour 🤣
My favorite of @lynngvnn. It's amazing how far @thisispvris has come since I found out about them a few years ago. They Always put on a great show!
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
#tbt playing at Warped 2015 with the gang. Sad to see Warped end but always grateful for the experience! #ripwarpedtour
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
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.
