Vans Warped Tour 2011 review

In a mass of stages, mosh pits, mini skate parks, merch tents, lemonade stands and half dressed girls and boys, you’re reverted to your teenage self-advocacy ways. It's not every day you see long haired, tight attired band members with AAA stickers stuck to their leg, casually smoking with any adolescent punter who stops them. Enticing you to remember the days you used to hang out with your friends at the skate park whilst your favourite bands play beside you, when really you can’t skate. Warped tour is like an unrealistic reality. It's how Americans do it: Better. Clearly. 11
