I went to the Chicago Warped Tour date, July 19th, 2014 to be exact. It was my first Warped ever. I was so extremely excited! I saw all my favorite bands, I got to meet Crown the Empire, and they even signed my sketchbook! I think the best part of the whole day was meeting Austin Carlile. After their show, which was the last one of the day, I went to the spot where my friends and I agreed to meet up in case we were separated. Long story short, the guards would not let me go to the spot we agreed to meet up and I was separated from them for an hour after the show. They had my stuff and my phone was dead. I was crying, scared, and alone. My biggest fear of being lost in a huge crowd of people was coming true. These two amazing girls saw me and helped me out. As we were walking to gate two, we saw a huge crowd of people, and you’ll never guess who was there. Austin Carlile of course. After bawling my eyes out for an hour from being lost, I collected myself and took a picture with him. I eventually found my friends and bragged all night about how I met them. Literally the best day of my life, although I was separated and had a shoe thrown at my eye during A Day To Remember’s performance, it was TOTALLY FUCKING WORTH IT.
