Vans Warped Tour turned 18 this year and it continues to be one of the largest, most diverse summer tours that fans
of all ages look forward to attending each year. The tour's anticipation builds as line up announcements are made
throughout the year bringing more than 130 artists and bands into the spotlight with nine stages in 40 different U.S.
cities. Vans Warped Tour is also bringing some of it's performers as a package tour to Europe and Australia this winter.
This year's stop in Cincinnati, Ohio at Riverbend Music Center brought endless waves of mosh pits, a sea of
multicolored hair and a welcomed live music genre collision--ska, electronic, punk, hardcore, metal, singer-songwriters.
Gals crowded around their favorite stages in hopes of getting a good spot to be close to their imaginary boyfriends
while dudes pushed towards the restricted floor areas where the battle was waiting to be waged.
Among the many great aspects of the tour founded by Kevin Lyman is the accessibility to meet bands you've always
wanted to say thanks to and shake hands with as well as getting autographs and a picture.
We also can't forget the brave souls that we call photographers who ride into the storm with cameras blazing.
Throughout the nine hour day, photographers in the photo pits blindly dodge crowd surfers coming from behind to
steal a second of time that will forever be frozen.
With the massive tour concluding it's 2013 run through the states, fans will now countdown the days to next summer
and stay in touch with social media for lineup announcements and dates.
