During the month of May, the McNicholas Milestone Staff held a raffle during both lunches giving participating students a chance to win two tickets to the VANS Warped Tour 2014.  Tickets were sold for 3 chances for $5 or 1 chance for $2.

The VANS Warped Tour 2014 is a daylong event featuring 100+ artists and bands of various genres including Alternative, Punk, and Rock.  This year, the event will take place at Riverbend in Cincinnati on July 16.  Gates will open at 11 a.m. and close at 9 p.m.

The winner of the raffle was freshman Skye Lewis.  Lewis has not yet attended the festival, but is looking forward to seeing the band Of Mice and Men. “This is my first year attending the festival. Warped Tour is a great opportunity to discover new bands and nonprofit organizations,” Lewis said.

A selection of popular bands performing on the Tour include 3OH!3, Breathe Carolina, Watsky, and Mayday Parade. Junior Gabrielle Quesnell has attended the Tour in the past and described its atmosphere as one much different to festivals such as Bunbury.

“The bands at Warped Tour are usually from different genres than artists at Bunbury, so there’s a different kind of crowd and energy,” Quesnell described. “The excitement of the crowd at all of the different sets stood out.”

The lineup for the concert day can be found on their website.  Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com.
