Anonymous said: I was wondering if you have any pointers as to how a band would get on warped tour? I have some awareness as to what you need to do, but over all, i could still really use some advice from someone experienced. Thank You!

The advice I’m sure you’ve heard before still applies. Build a social media presence (a real one, don’t buy followers), play shows, get people talking about your band. Warped wants to break bands, but they also want to book bands that are going to bring fans who purchase tickets. It’s business. I believe Warped has a link on their page where they’ll accept submissions during certain parts of the year. But you want to make sure your band has the best possible shot when you submit: that you both kick ass musically, and that you offer them something in return: your fanbase coming out to see you play.

Disclaimer: I’ve never been on the side that books artists for Warped or other tours, so I can’t offer an answer from that perspective. I can only offer an answer based on what I’ve seen friends and fellow tour peers experience.

Just noticed in every picture from the Apex set that I’m in, there’s Starbucks in my hand.
Sounds about right.

During my twenties I’ve slept overnight in parking lots, forests, festival lot fields, bounce houses, and now - a cemetery.
