STAY COOL + HYDRATED
Yeah we know it gets hot on Warped, here are a few ways to stay cool:
SIGG Water Hydration Stations: The Warped Tour will be providing FREE filtered water at the SIGG Water Hydration Systems at each Warped stop this summer. Fans can fill up empty water bottles, soda cups or purchase a reusable water bottle all of which can be filled up as much as needed throughout the day. Note that fans are allowed to bring in one sealed water bottle when they enter the show and that can be continuously filled up at the station. Look for the “WATER” banner in the festival grounds for the filtration stations.
SHADE AREAS + TAKING A BREAK
Look for these designated shade tents throughout the venue. As for amphitheater shows, that roof makes a nice cover from the sun.
Misting Stations: Who can turn down some cool mist during a hot day? Look for misting stations throughout the festival grounds.
Slip and Slide: Even better than a misting station is the slip and slide!! Weather permitting look for the slip and slide on the festival grounds. Jump in, get wet, and have fun!
Rock & Bus will be providing round trip shuttles from many locations around the venue. Visit the Rock and Bus site and help spread the word for a fun, safe, and green way to enjoy the day.
Transportation: Most venues are accessible through local public transportation. Some venues have shuttles that are dedicated to Warped shows. Check the venue website for more information on transportation and possibility for shuttles for specific shows.
