Warped Tour fans flocked to the various stages to catch a glimpse of their favorite acts at the 18th annual punk rock n’ more held at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine on Thursday.
New Found Glory (pictured above), Senses Fail, Anti-Flag, Falling in Reverse, Miss May I, the Used, Taking Back Sunday, Blessthefall and All Time Low were just a few of the bands to grace one of the multiple stages throughout the day. Though traffic in and out of the venue was an absolute nightmare – one hour just to get into the venue from off of the 5 freeway and as long as two hours to get out and onto the freeway once the event ended around 9 p.m. – the rest of the day seemed to operate much more smoothly.
The Warped Tour hits the Ventura County Fair on June 24 and Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre in Chula Vista on June 27. Get more info and tickets at Vanswarpedtour.com.
