The first time I went to Warped Tour was when I was 14 in 2001. I was a young, wide-eyed kid who loved pop-punk music. I stepped into the festival only liking a few pop-punk bands, who were pretty mainstream, but after I left there were a handful of underground bands that I watched and fell in love with. Ten years later, I still listen to and love those bands. This is one of many reasons I enjoy going to the Vans Warped Tour.

Against Me at Warped Tour in 2008, and are one of the headlining bands in 2011

Another thing that makes the festival unique and awesome is that all bands seem to act as a family and community.

Musicians come out when they’re not playing to support each other, walk around to talk to people, and really open themselves up to enjoy the social nature of the outdoor festival. This gives attendees a rare chance to meet, dance and have a drink with their favorite guitarist or singer. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of my favorite musicians while strolling around the fest.

There are more genres than punk rock and pop punk, so don’t limit yourself to thinking that’s all that is there.  Ska, alternative rock, and many other sub genres of rock fill the air as well. If you like rock music, there is a band on this bill that you will probably love.

Warped Tour is coming through Illinois on July 9 at First Midwest Bank Amphitheater and goes all day starting at 11:30AM.
