GUEST BLOG: Warped ’17 Recap (Charlotte, NC)


Words, Photos, & Video by Stephanie Smith

This year’s Warped Tour was my second attending, first shooting.

Jule Vera and Blessthefall were faves, for sure; if I wasn’t having a blast already, seeing how much fun they were having was definitely contagious. Andy and Matty smiled at the crowd nonstop. And Bad Cop/Bad Cop kept it real with their feminist rants and raw talent.


In between snapping photos at my hometown date, I switched to video mode and snagged some footage from the pit and around the grounds. I’ve always been drawn to people and portraiture, and Warped provided the perfect opportunity to capture diversity, subculture, and music-fest fanfare.

Until next year…
