Here it is again! Another day of sweltering heat, dust inhalation, khaki shorts, Hawaiian shirts, endless bracelets, countless Epitaph string bags and crazy sunburn. It’s Warped Tour in Pomona once again.
Being in California for the majority of my life here in the United States, I’ve attended a lot of Warped venues in the State – San Diego, Carson, my favorite Ventura, Pomona, I even went to the tour stop in Marysville. I was approved to photograph the one in Mountain View, which is the only one I haven’t been to but due to some unforeseeable events, I was sent back to Southern California.
This year Warped Tour dropped some dates that were usually stops. Unfortunately, one of those dates was Ventura and so it was Pomona that was closest to me. As you can probably tell, I am not a fan of a summer day in Pomona.
Enough of my rant, This years Warped was stacked with tour veterans and some new guns. I personally was bummed out that Good Charlotte didn’t play the West Coast but holy shit was I stoked for Atreyu and Waka Flocka. So before you blow your brains out from reading my stupid blabber any longer, here are some photos from Vans Warped Tour, Pomona.
I’m sorry if I didn’t shoot your favorite bands Sleeping With Sirens and Falling In Reverse… I got distracted by free Chia Cherry drinks.
