As the weather heats up and finals draw near, students are caught in the hustle of the last stretch. We prepare to pack, say our goodbyes, and to make summer plans. The beach will be on the list, as well as cookouts and family outings. What is missing is the key to a great summer– music. Although Spotify always has our backs, perhaps something that offers a bit more excitement is in order. You can rest easy with the knowledge that Vans Warped tour is here for you.
Warped Tour is the largest traveling music festival in the United States. The skateboard shoe manufacturer Vans, has sponsored the tour every year since 1995, and it has been called the Vans Warped Tour since 1996.
