Warped Tour, Vol. 4
By: Nicole Juliette Hetlyn
Even though the Vans Warped Tour has come to an end, we still have plenty of photos to reminisce over. We had so much fun going to multiple dates this year, every band brought their A-game as they took the Warped stage one final time. We're excited to bring you photos and interviews these next few weeks from the Nashville, Atlanta, and Milwaukee, highlighting some of our favorite performances of 2018: the final Warped Tour.

One of our favorite performers of Warped Tour was Nashville’s “special guest,” William Ryan Key. With Yellowcard being such an influential band of our scene and playing Warped numerous times, it was necessary to have WRK play the final Warped. It was bittersweet hearing Ryan play these songs on an acoustic guitar, he sounded incredible and every pop-punk fan screamed the lyrics right back. Pre-order is available now order for Ryan’s second EP, Virtue. You can listen to the first single, “The Bowery,” [HERE]. William Ryan Key will be playing a few shows in Australia this month. You can also catch him on tour shortly after supporting Mayday Parade on their Sunnyland tour. It's quite the line-up, so be sure to get your tickets now! [DATES /TICKETS].
A well-known fact about me, is that I love pop-punk. I’m always listening to pop-punk / pop-rock music, and always looking to expand my music library. Real Friends came into my life around a year ago, and I have been hooked ever since. Their set was so energetic; they were feeding off of the crowd as well as each other. I thoroughly enjoyed their set, and am looking forward to seeing Real Friends on tour this fall with Boston Manor and grayscale.. [DATES/TICKETS]
