Me and my boy @jaret2113 of @bfs_official who has taught me so much in a few weeks on the final cross country @vanswarpedtour . A true honor to be part of his final set and rap in front of 5000 people. Love you dude! Inspirational and literally the most amazing band in the world!! Also...look how tan we are 🦁👑
The last @vanswarpedtour ever 😭 took the opportunity and saw @simpleplan perform live once again! Will never forget how at my first Warped Tour three years ago, I actually took pictures with the band members! 📸🎤🎼 #vanswarpedtour#warpedtour#warpedtour2018
Today, I had to say goodbye. Goodbye to the highlights of my summer. Goodbye to going deaf from the music and burning up from the sun. Goodbye to Warped Tour, for this year is their last full cross-country run.
I’ve only gone four years, so by no means am I a veteran of Warped Tour. But this music festival has impacted me so greatly. It’s helped me come of out of my shell. It’s helped me live my life to the fullest.
My first year, I went with someone that I barely knew. @elaine_phillips_. At the time, we knew nothing of each other besides the fact that we enjoyed the same music. She told me about this music festival I had never heard of, and she invited me to tag along with her and her dad. The next two years, we brought some friends, but today, it was just us again. Me, her, her dad, and her brother. Back to where it all began.
Pictured above is me with Doll Skin. I’ve loved them from the moment I discovered them last year. They are huge inspirations to me, as someone who’s plays guitar and makes music with Elaine. All-girl bands are hard to come by, and I’m so happy I got to see them live, on my last day of Warped Tour.
I saw many other bands, too. Bands that I know and love, bands that I’ve only heard of, and bands that I’ve never heard of. I heard some people say that this Warped Tour wasn’t the best, but I thought it was perfect.
