The Vans Warped Tour invaded Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, Florida on a hot Friday afternoon. The Warped Tour is the largest traveling music festival in the United States, and the longest-running touring music festival in North America (est. 1995).
Less Than Jake, Sum 41, and Yellowcard rocked the bay. Coldrain, a metal group from Japan was by far the loudest band of the day. Vinoy Park provided a reliable venue to watch 80-plus bands in ten hours. The acoustics were set up well as the different stages didn’t overpower each other. The Warped Tour is a great festival to meet your favorite band as every group fought for your attention at tent city.
