Since 1995, the Vans Warped Tour has traveled the country uniting scene kids, punk rockers and all those looking to let out their angst in a circle pit with an afternoon of punk, ska, metal and hip-hop. Over the years, the tour has hosted artists like Eminem (1999) and Katy Perry (2008) before they catapulted into global stardom.

But the community and camaraderie of the tour is what I think was so attractive – getting to kick it with your favorite bands at their merch booths and enduring the heat with the folks who shared a passion for the same type of music you connect with. Whether it was hip-hop, metalcore, hardcore, ska, indie rock or whatever – it’s what set Vans Warped Tour apart from your regular concert. Featured bands on the lineup include The Used, Bowling for Soup, Simple Plan, We The Kings, 3Oh!3 and Every Time I Die.

$43, Sat July 7, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy, attcenter.com.
