Last week, the Vans Warped Tour came to Mansfield, MA with one of its best lineups in years and without fail, tens of thousands of die-hard music lovers filled the grounds of the Xfinity Center and had the time of their lives.
The acts this year was more diverse than any featuring a variety of music from all genres. With it’s growing popularity amongst festival-goers, they even had a dedicated stage for electronic and dance music, even rapper Riff-Raff is on the tour this year.
But Warped is notorious for its massic rock and hardcore fanbase, and they didn’t hold back this year in giving fans what they wanted. Warped Veterans Pierce the Veil and Memphis May Fire performed for huge crowds, and even punk legends Senses Fail took to the stages and gave the show of a lifetime.
This show also had performances by many local legends as well. PVRIS played main stage, A Loss for Words had their very last Warped performance, Transit rocked both Journey’s Left Foot” Stage and had an intimate acoustic set at the Full Sail Acoustic Basement Tent. Our Last Night is on tour all summer on the Monster Energy Stage, as well. Also, for Mansfield only, the boys in Vanna joined Beartooth on stage for a surprise breakdown, and Four Year Strong played one hell of a set.
It was a good day to be a music fan, we are already counting the days until next year.
