As another Warped Tour comes to a close, those of you who’ve been lucky enough to head out to one of the many dates have your stories to tell: meeting bands, your favorite sets, even just traveling to whichever date you attended. But what about those behind-the-scenes moments that only social media can give us? Well, you’re in luck.

We’ve collected 10 posts that give you a glimpse into life on Warped Tour. From Silent Planet’s birthday arrest to Creeper’s well-documented run-in with the pesky ole Westboro Baptist Church, Warped Tour 2017 had a lot of special moments that happened offstage, as well as onstage.
