Back in March, the Vans Warped Tour announced the full lineup of artists performing at the festival this summer. Just a few weeks ago, Warped released another announcement, sharing the sponsors and attractions that concert-goers can expect to see! The first wave of 2016 featured sponsors/partners include Vans, Journeys, Monster Energy, the U.S. Army, truth, Full Sail University, peta2, Twix, Trojan Condoms, Fueled By Ramen, Cool Gear, Ernie Ball, Depop and The Entertainment Institute (TEI) – the complete list can be found here
This summer, fans will notice a slight change in stage names as Journeys will be taking over both main stages, renaming them to Journeys Left Foot Stage and Journeys Right Foot Stage. In addition to this, fans will also be introduced to the Monster Energy Party Zone which will feature side-by-side stages of non-stop heavy music from artists such as Atreyu, Every Time I Die, Motionless In White, The Color Morale, and Chelsea Grin.
It’s almost summer time, and out on my side of the earth (California), it’s creeping faster than normal. If I’m being honest, summer is my least favorite time of year. I’ve never been a fan of the heat, and I tend to gravitate more towards the crisp fall air and the sound of rain tapping on the windows. But at the same time, there’s something oddly comforting and exciting about this time of year. It’s easy to have a romanticized perception of summertime, but one of my favorite pastimes is just to drive. Even if it’s
just down the highway, having a small taste of escape while cruising around, windows down and music blasting, is always welcomed. I’ve discovered some of my favorite bands and albums while driving, and that sense is always seemingly heightened during the summer months. Night Argent has become another one of those bands for me. Their self-titled EP is as infectious as it is creative, and it’s the perfect fit for those summer night drives.
