After more than two decades of iconic summer tours, the final NY date of the Vans Warped Tour is this Saturday, July 28th

We knew this day was coming, but now that it’s here, it’s hard to really believe. From the days of begging our parents to drive us, to the compilation CDs and other merch we accumulated, and to figuring out which all black outfit we were going to wear all day in the blazing sun, it was a yearly tradition to see, and if we were lucky, meet many of our favorite bands all in one place. 

In addition to the music, the other best part about going to Warped Tour was the communal aspect. We were all just kids trying to figure out who we were and have a good time! We explored, we interacted with each other, and we partied! 

Cheers to the countless “firsts” we all experienced and the never ending memories we’ll hold on to forever!
