Midday thunderstorms interrupted an otherwise exciting and fun day at the Boston, MA market VANS Warped Tour Date. For many concert-goers and young music fans, the VANS Warped Tour is the highlight of the summer.
This summer the tour has turned in a direction going back towards it's roots with more punk rock, hardcore, and heavy metal than pop punk and metalcore. Stellar sets from bands such as Valient Thorr, Municipal Waste, and shock rockers GWAR gave fans of all genres something to see throughout the day.
Of course there was still plenty of emo/pop punk handled by bands like Dance Gavin Dance, Silverstien, and Our Last Night for the younger fans. Upstart rockers I Prevail showed a lot of promise on the Warped run, and appear to be headed for joining a large list of artists who got their big break on the VANS Warped Tour.
Even hip hop was represented with Massachusetts native Sammy Adams delivering a mighty and hyped up set. Warped Tour has long been a chance for folks who are fans of multiple types of music to check out stuff outside their comfort zone.
Whatever genre tickles your fancy, there's something there for you at the 2017 VANS Warped Tour
