It’s almost that time again: the annual Vans Warped Tour chugs all across the United States, starting with a date in Seattle next week! We can’t wait to see the bands, the fans, and sweat it out all day at our favourite punk rock summer camp. Don’t forget the sunscreen!

As for the bands we’re most excited to see/photograph? Definitely Creeper, Blessthefall, Being as an Ocean, Silverstein, and Hands Like Houses.

Remember when we sent Lindsey to the festival last year and she left her camera in Canada? We’re aiming not to repeat that one again. Here’s a look through some of our favourite photos from last year’s Seattle date!
