The Final Warped Tour
Oscar Rendon | June 26th, 2018
The final Warped Tour is coming stopping at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St. Louis, MO (Maryland Heights) and we are here to guide you, navigate you through this summer's biggest touring festival one last time. Whether it's your first time or you're a wildly veteran to the festival we have tips for you on how to enjoy the final Warped Tour.. EVER!
- When preparing for the summer bash be ready to endure a hot day in the sun. Bring sunscreen, water, and electronic fans to keep you cool, in the past, VWT have offered cooling tents for the fans to go in and cool off and this year is no different. Along with cooling tents, bring a bottle of water. If you're looking to save a couple bucks then that's the way to go, each venue should have water fountains and free refill stations via VWT. Stay hydrated.
- Plan your day ahead of time, if you know what bands you are looking forward to seeing then make a list. Schedules/set times aren't released until the morning of when the big inflatable schedule is up at the venue. Take a picture and coordinate where and when you want to be for your favorite bands. Also, keep in mind you aren'y the only person going. So arrive early, you might just miss your favorite band because you weren't early enough.
- We know it's summer but do some homework on some of the other bands on the tour you haven't heard of. 9 times out of 10 you'll end up liking or discovering a band in the early stages of their career. So many acts like Paramore, Echosmith, Katy Perry and countless others have gotten their start on the Warped stage.
- The last thing to keep in mind is having fun. It's the final Warped Tour ever and just like years past we should have fun and cherish all the great memories the festival has given us.
These are just some tips to keep in mind when attending this years Vans Warped Tour in St. Louis or in whatever city you plan on going to.
