Any advice?

I'm fairly certain that every concert will be outdoors, so, TAKE SUNSCREEN! That's very important. Take it with you, and apply it throughout the day.
- Take one of those drawstring backpacks with you, like this. There will be booths that give away a bunch of free stuff, and, not to mention, you'll need something to put the merchandise you buy in.
- You're allowed to take a small, homemade snack with you. So like, take a sandwich bag of chips or maybe a granola bar with you. Don't take anything salty, as that will make you thirsty.
- Stay hydrated! That's one of the most important things. So many people forget to drink water throughout the day, and they get dehydrated and have to go to the hospital.
- Take a change of clothes with you, but leave it in the car. You'll be all sweaty and stanky when the concerts over, and it'd suck having to smell yourself the whole way home. O.o
- You cannot leave to go to your car once you're in the venue. If you leave, you can't get back in.
- In most venues, studded belts/chains/wallet chains/spiky jewelry is not allowed, and will be taken away.
- DO NOT WEAR FLIP-FLOPS! With all the people running around, jumping, and moshing, they'll get stepped on and you'll lose them. Boots are also not a good thing to wear. The best to wear is tennis shoes, Converse, Vans, ect. Flats are also a good idea, so long as they won't give you blisters on heels of your feet.
- Wear light colored clothing... darker clothes attract more heat. And try not to wear anything to thick, like layering shirts and stuff like that.
- You can take cameras with you, so long as they're digital or disposable. No professional cameras allowed.
- Make a list of bands that you want to see the night before, so that way when you get there, you can write down the times of the bands you want to see, making things easier.

I have more to post, but I don't have time to post the rest right nowwww.

No problem! :]
Here's a few more I thought of...

- Make sure to wear clothing that you don't mind getting dirty. Because, more likely than not, you'll end up with some kind of something on your clothes.
- Take some sunglasses with you! But don't take your favorite pair... it's probably best to take a cheap pair, because there's a big possibility of them getting broken.
- You might want to take some earplugs, for when there aren't any bands playing that you want to see, and your ears start hurting. :|
- If you're worried about mosh pits, watch the concert from the back. Mosh pits get crazy, and are everywhere, at Warped.
- Don't wear a whole lot of makeup, as you'll just end up sweating it off.
- Take breaks every now and again. When you're not watching a band play, take a ten minute sit break. These concerts are, after all, about 8-10 hours long.
- You're not allowed to take mp3 players. Which, I'm not sure why you'd want to anyway, but...
- Get PLENTY of rest the night before. If you're too excited and can't sleep, take some Benadryl or something of the sort, and it'll knock ya out for a good eight hours.
- Food is incredibly expensive at the concession stands, so eat a good, full meal before you leave. Take snacks for the ride to the concert. That way, you won't have to spend so much money on food while you're there.
- When you get there in the morning, go to the Vans tent and you can buy a schedule, showing all the bands, what times they play, what times they do signing/meets, and shows a map of the venue.
- Make sure you know where the medical tent(s) are.
- In case you have to go with your parents, they have a Reverse Day Care center where your parents can sit and chill, while you rock out.
- Get to the venue early!!! That way, you get good parking, and you can go to the tents and buy all the merchandise you want. If you wait until the concerts actually start to buy your merchandise, you might miss out on all the best stuff.
- Don't let crowd surfers fall! That would be mean.
- If you're worried about losing your money/it getting stolen, the best place to put it is your bra. Hahah, weird, but it really is the best place.
- Be on the lookout. They do sell alcohol there. People already get crazy there to begin with, then add alcohol with that, and it gets insane. Just watch out for yourself.
- If you take your cell phone, make sure it's fully charged.
- I'd definitely reccommend taking a hair brush with you.
- Try not to take anything in your backpack that's too heavy, as you have to walk around with it all day.

Hmm, well, that's all I can really think of.
But I reallyyyyyyyy stress the sunscreen and water thing. Reapply sunscreen about every hour. Most of the people there apply sunscreen all day long, and still get bad sunburns... so, if you don't put any on at all, you'll be worse off than a charcoaled burger. AND DON'T LET YOURSELF GET DEHYDRATED. :3

Also, water is 3 dollars a bottle there, so keep that in mind. And for like, a hotdog and soda, it's ten bucks. :shock: I'm not kidding. So, yeah...

But most importantly, have fun! =D

Thank you so much!
haha, I was worried on what to do/what to bring, considering the only concerts I've been to are like HM/JB and the Jonas Brothers.

Hah, no problem!
I know what you mean... concerts like the Warped Tour can be sort of nerve wracking, really. Trying to figure out what you can and can't take, and what you do once you get there.
Anyway, hope I helped outtttt. :]

So, who's playing at y'all's dates, and who are y'all wanting to go see? :D
