Vans Warped Tour is a huge summer tour, usually consisting of about 50 bands, multiple stages and vendors of all sorts. The tour goes on for months and visits nearly all the major cities in the U.S., the lineup varying sometimes depending on the city. The Dallas stop was one of the first stops on the 2014 tour and it went off without a hitch. The day was sunny and hot but spirits were high as the doors opened. There were five stages plus an Acoustic Underground tent. Most noteworthy was a stand for free water, which was highly appreciated, and even a waterslide. The following is a small glimpse of the Dallas Warped Tour.
