I’ve always wanted to attend Warped Tour so I was stoked when it was announced that it was coming to Australia. However, the line up was a bit of a let down and I didn’t have any friends to go with so I wasn’t gonna go. I literally decided to go the day before. So glad I did ‘cause it was fucking awesome.
I saw a total of 10 bands. I initially only wanted to go for The Used and We Came As Romans but I discovered For All Those Sleeping a few days before Warped so I kinda wanted to see them as well.
The Summer Set were a pretty fun live band.
Man Overboard kinda reminded me of Motion City Soundtrack.
I never knew Tonight Alive had such a big fanbase.
Jenna McDougall is such a babe. I definitely have a girl crush on her.
I was front and centre for For All Those Sleeping. Kinda got emotional during “Follow My Voice” lol.
A security guard gave me a bottle of water and mini cans of Lipton Iced Tea Sparkling were given out and after a while, I needed to empty my bladder but the portable toilets didn’t have toilet paper or soap. Being a girl is hard. I was ecstatic when I found a proper toilet with a full length mirror and everything so why not take a selfie? :3
Weaved my way to the fifth row for The Used but people sweated too much and all I could see were heads so I went to the back. Bert McCracken told the crowd to split down the centre and we all just ran into each other. It was pretty cool. :D
I fucking love this photo I took of The Used. I reckon it’s fucking great.
Weaved into the second row for We Came As Romans. I put out my hand and David (WCAR’s unclean vocalist) grabbed my hand and I helped him into the crowd. When he went back on stage, I pushed myself on to the barricade but obviously the bitch next to me didn’t want me there cause she kept shoving me with her hips and gave me the biggest dirties but I didn’t give a fuck but it was annoying so I went back into the second row. Then Kyle (WCAR’s clean vocalist) went into the crowd and when he left, I pushed myself on to the barricade again, right in the centre too and the girls next to me didn’t seem to mind. So many guys crowd surfed though. Ugh.
Saw Hatebreed for 10 minutes then I went over to the #noregrets stage to check out Crown The Empire.
Jumped into the circle pit when Hatebreed played “Destroy Everything” and danced like a gorilla whilst singing/screaming/growling along. That was probably the highlight of my day.
Bumped into a guy I met at Dream On, Dreamer and he pulled me into the second row for The Amity Affliction. Didn’t take any photos though ‘cause I was trying not to die. One of the singers wore Cradle of Filth’s ‘Jesus Is A Cunt’ shirt so that was pretty cool. Their lyrics were pretty predictable so I kinda just guessed the lyrics and sang random shit, lol.
One of the girls in front of me left before Parkway Drive and she gave me her barricade spot. The guy on my left was a fucking giant, I was like slightly above his elbows and he stank. He was also a cunt. After Parkway Drive played all of my favourite PWD songs, I left ‘cause I was sick of the fat crowd surfers and I don’t care about PWD enough to stay at the front for them. I wanted to give my spot to the guy behind me but the cunt that was next to me pushed him back. I hung at the back for all of PWD’s set then it was time to go home.
Overall, it was a great day and since I was alone, it was so much easier to be ruthless and weave through people to get to the front. I didn’t have to look for anyone either and I went where ever I wanted so I got to see all of the bands I wanted to see. It was pretty awesome. I’d do it again without hesitation. :)
