What To Pack For Warped Tour Featuring ICYMI

Since I recently attended Vans Warped Tour a few days ago, I thought making a post about things that you can carry and bring with you would be important for anyone who doesn’t know what to bring. Here is a list of things that I packed with me for Warped Tour.

Before Warped Tour, here are the essentials I need to bring with me…

  • Sunscreen
  • Sharpie- You never know who you’re going to meet
  • Bottle of water- Vans Warped Tour allows an attendee to bring in 1 sealed bottle of water
  • Hat
  • Portable Charger
  • Sunglasses
  • Backpack
  • Band Aids
  • Ticket

After Warped Tour, including the variety of things I brought with me, I bought a few extra things and received free things as well. Here is the list of other things I received that day.

  • The Gospel Youth’s Always Lose signed
  • Dead Reflection by Silverstein
  • Shirt from Hope For The Day’s tent that they collaborated with Real Friends.
  • Hope For The Day Sticker
  • Flag from Movements tent that the band signed during their signing.
  • My signed Warped ticket by Too Close To Touch
  • Small fan that pluged into my phone
  • Backpack from Barnes & Noble (Not available)
  • “Animals Are Not Ours” pamphlet that is handed out annually at Warped Tour
  • Fossil Wallet
  • Sunscreen from CVS
  • Core water bottle
  • Portable charger (purchased at Marshall’s)
  • Essential dachshund bag that held the portable charger
  • Band Aids
  • List of Vans Warped Tour Dates received day of (and information of the rest of the dates can be found here.)
  • Car keys

Here is a picture of some of the things I had with me at the end of Warped Tour.


I had a great time at this year’s Vans Warped Tour. When the lineup was announced in March, I was hoping for a few more bands I knew that were performing. From March until Warped Tour in July, I learned a lot about bands and had a great time.
