The 2014 Vans Warped Tour is winding down, with only three more dates to go before the traveling rock festival wraps up for another year. Our interns on the road have told us it’s been a long (and hot!) but rewarding summer. We even heard that Show Production grad and Acoustic Basement intern Allan Casillas (pictured above, behind the console, mixing a set for the band Elder Brother) has made some promising contacts for future gigs. This was the third year for the Acoustic Basement presented by Full Sail University. Musicians including Anthony Raneri (Bayside), Nick Santino (A Rocket to the Moon), and Bad Rabbits have played acoustic sets to fans who have been packing themselves inside the stage’s tented space.
In addition to the Acoustic Basement, the Full Sail tent has given tour-goers a chance to learn more about the school and check out a Raven MTX touch screen console and a retro arcade featuring student games. Tour headliners Mayday Parade hold their daily autograph signings at the tent, which have drawn a huge crowd of fans.
Check out a couple of performances from the Acoustic Basement below, then find more (including full sets from Anthony Raneri, Nick Santino, Front Porch Step, and Bad Rabbits) over on our YouTube channel.
