The Vans Warped Tour was exactly what I wanted in a concert. I got to see my favorite band, Black Veil Brides, and even ran into them in the parking lot after their set was over. There was so much to see and do that I'm sure I merely scratched the surface of it all. I got to meet my idols and even took home a drumstick from CC. It wa so overwhemingly amazing, I cannot wait to go again this year!
The main band I enjoyed was We Came As Romans, even though there were 50 to choose from we only got to see a few close up because of the crowds. The music was amazing and so were the merch tent and vendors. There was so much to do and I am hoping to go back again this year.
