Festival Friday: Warped Tour

Warped Tour was my first real introduction into the music industry.  I still remember how captivating it felt to be on the grounds for the first time when I was 14 years old, and to realize that it was possible to use music as a platform to change lives and build a community - the sea of screaming kids around me was proof of that.  Fast forward about seven years later, I had the chance to photograph Warped Tour when it stopped in Holmdel and Scranton this past week, and it was still just as exciting for me to get to be a part of the chaos yet again.  In the two dates I attended, I was lucky to catch The Wonder Years, Pierce the Veil, Seaway, Moose Blood, Major League, Transit, Citizen, Have Mercy, PVRIS, Neck Deep, and yes - even RiFF RAFF.  Check out some of my photos below, and be sure to check out some of these bands on their fall tours!
