This year’s Warped Tour commenced in Seattle at their new location at Centurylink Field, and so myself and 4 other Vancouver-based photographers made the trip down south for the festival.

Despite becoming more diverse over the years, Warped Tour still sticks to its punk roots, with veterans such as The Ataris and Hawthorne Heights gracing the stages alongside the young risers such as Creeper, Boston Manor and Courage My Love.

The highlight of the day has to be wrapping our cameras up in preparation for GWAR, who — of course — sprayed the crowd in fake blood for their entire set. Craziest show you’ll ever see.
