With the 2017 Vans Warped Tour coming to a close, we thought we should take a moment to reminisce on the epic memories this one left us. There’s no denying it. This year’s summer tour was absolutely killer.
No really- think about it. Over ninety bands from across the country participated in this year’s tour. Each Warped day was packed with performances from the biggest names in rock out there. From the doors opening at 11 am to their closing at 9 pm, fans received ultimate and nonstop entertainment. We’re talking shows from bands and artists like Andy Black, I Prevail, Memphis May Fire, Neck Deep, Creeper, and Plain White T’s, and that’s just scratching the surface.
What’s more is that the festival venues had everything you could possibly need. Countless beverages, food concession stands, and a slip and slide (because what’s summer without an inflatable water ride?) were just a few of the things lining the way to the stage. Festival goers also had the opportunity to do some good by donating to Feed our Children NOW!, or give blood to nonprofit organization Music Saves Lives. The first 100 participants were given backstage passes.
Headrush TV was certainly jamming out at this year’s tour, and caught up with some of our favorite artists. Take a look at our interviews under Artist Exclusives to hear from the coolest band members you could hope to meet. Hear from I Prevail, Hawthorne Heights, and Big D and the Kids Table! Keep your eyes peeled for more artist exclusives to come (cough cough, Anti-flag, Alestorm, and more).
We don't know about you, but we're counting down the days until next summer.
