Once, we talked to Real Friends frontman Dan Lambton about his appreciation for Warped Tour. When we asked him how feels about the sense of community the festival brings, he explained, “I think that there can definitely be cliques – not necessarily in bad way, just on terms of the bands that you’re put around – but I think that everybody wants to help each other and wants to keep each other safe throughout the process. Like, we’re going into this 20 day stretch and I think everybody is going to want to be having people around them that they know and be able to blow off steam and have something to do and be able to be there for each other if it gets a little difficult. So I’d say it is a little bit of both. There are people that I never would have thought I’d meet on Warped Tour and then there are some people we don’t encounter for the entire tour and don’t know.”
