So, do 16-19 year olds have agency or not? How about, if you don't like the communication with a person, just block them? Regarding Mr McFesh. I read some of the link, it was really long. And since when is it criminal to be a bad boyfriend? Who is in band on tour? Not that I care about Warped or know any of the bands.

There's still Riot Fest, although that only plays in the same three cities each year.

I personally believe that children 21 and under should be let into Warped Tour because, I myself am 14 years old, we won't be able to find an escape, there is no other tour like this one that allows kids inside, I have been going to warped tour since 2011 and I stand for everyone when I say that we kids need warped tour. It is a tour that features all of our favorite bands that we have been into for a long time, we are the true fans of these bands, we are looked at as the "weird" people in society, that's what warped tour is about, being one body, one voice, and Kevin Lyman has taken all of that away for us kids. I grew up liking metal, punk, screamo, and all the "fround-upon music" as a kid, and I know that a huge amount of kids at warped tour did too, warped tour gave us the opportunity to have a fun filled day with all of our friends who like the same weird music it was amazing how so many children could come together as one, and now I can't bring myself to the realization that I will not be able to feel the same way again.

Not sure Buddy Nelson from Senses Fail can speak on the topic as he addressed the crowed as homophobic and told them to "Suck his d***" after they were not impressed with him opening his shirt and showing off his chest during his bands set.

Excuse my previous comment, I thought it meant you couldn't go to warped tour if you are under 21, thank the heavens that that's not the case, but still, I'm in a band and was hoping to play warped in a couple years. Bummer

Warped is definitely Not over.

This is why it is a fantastic idea to stay away from drugs! Because behind drugs is usually a story of sexual relations regardless of rather they are true or not people will always judge you for something especially if you have the word drugs in your history. If the bands are misbehaving then where are the parents? If my daughter or son had come into inappropriate contact with some one I would be blocking some one and telling my kid how to report and block people.
Not that I have children but come on people it's common sense, predator? Block! I mean we do have parental watches on information being transmitted for reasons.!

wow. sounds like rock got neutered. I guess there will never be another iggy, another led zeppelin, etc. etc. I'm not talking about a clone I'm talking about spirit.
Misbehaving was integral to rock. If you remove the freedom and the danger, what do you got?

I guess the title says it all: Corporate Punk.
