This summer marks the 21st year of the Vans Warped Tour, and Full Sail is proud to return as a sponsor of the largest (and longest running) traveling festival around. The tour kicked off last Friday in Pomona, California, but things are just getting started as it makes its way to a total of 42 cities throughout the summer.
Attendees can check out The Acoustic Basement presented by Full Sail University, which features some of the hottest acts of the tour in an intimate, stripped down setting. The fully tented stage will feature rotating performances by Moose Blood, Brian Marquis, Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties, Grey Gordon, and more.
Visitors looking to engage their artistic side can contribute drawings, quotes, and stories to Full Sail’s “Be Creative” art board. Be sure to follow Full Sail on Instagram to see daily selections from the project. The tent also includes a mobile arcade featuring student-made video games. Arizona natives Bless the Fall will also hold daily autograph signings in the tent over the course of the summer.
Six lucky Full Sail grads are serving as interns for the duration of the tour, in a variety of positions that include production assistants, live sound engineers, graphic designers, and managing the reverse daycare tent.
