Artist Spotlight: Vans Warped Tour Edition

10:03:00 AM

Discovering new music is my absolute favorite thing to do. Whether it's from my Discover Weekly playlist on Spotify or the opening performer at a show, finding a new singer or band that I love makes me feel like a kid on Christmas Day. 
To extend the same happy feeling to you, I'm going to be sharing some of my favorite people!

As Blink-182 so gracefully put it: "I couldn't wait for the summer and the Warped Tour." My summer is never complete without attending the annual Vans Warped Tour. I may now be closer to the ages of the adults in the Parents' Tent, but I refuse to stop going to one of my favorite festivals of all time. 

So many of my favorite bands were playing this year, but I also took the time to check out some bands who weren't on the two main stages. If you're in need of some great new pop-punk tunes, then keep reading!

Waterparks — I saw these guys open for Good Charlotte and was stoked to check them out again at Warped. Because if they're good enough to open for one of my favorite bands, they're good enough for me! They may have only played in front of 100 or so people, but I bet they'll be hitting the main stage soon. You'll find yourself dancing around your room to their song "Crave" and your internal emo self will resonate with their hit "Mad All The Time". As a bonus, their lead singer Awsten reminds me of a punk rock Peter Pan, which is always a plus in my book.
With Confidence hails from Australia, and I was so excited to finally get to see them live. If you're a fan of All Time Low, you'll definitely love them. When I first heard WC, I got major So Wrong It's Right vibes. Plus, they have a song called "Voldemort", so how could you not adore them? Also: ACCENTS! Swoon.
I discovered The Heirs literally as my friends and I were driving to the Long Island Warped Tour date. They came on a playlist and we all instantly fell in love. There are so few female-fronted bands out there, so it was great to see a new one on the scene. Their poppy, dance tunes (like their new single "What You Want" ) will take you back a few decades.
