It was a good change of pace for Warped Tour 2014 to take place at a different venue. But with anything new comes confusion, take for instance in the parking lot since they had used parking lots for Jones Beach to have the festival. The main venue was not used. It was confusing getting our photo passes since security had no idea and we all had to fend for ourselves to find the press tent. Besides that little mishap we got in before the doors officially opened. Once the show started it was not fun running around the place trying to find the right stages. But the bands overall played a great show. Full of energy from all metal bands and their fans. The kids really had fun. Somehow this felt like it wasn’t as crazy as last year I suppose. Security as always can be difficult when it comes to taking photos with some of the bigger more notable bands, but eventually things got settled and it smoothed out thorough the evening.
Some of the best performance on this day came from the veteran punk rockers, Yellowcard, the metal sounds of Crown the Empire, the intensity of Motionless in White, and the up and comers We Are the In Crowd.
Now entering its 20th year, the Vans Warped Tour has become America’s longest running touring festival concert tour and reaches more than 500,000 fans every summer.
