ON THE ROAD: Warped Tour, Japan and Hawaii with Crown the Empire


The Warped Tour is a Traveling rock festival that has toured the United States annually each summer since 1995. It is the largest traveling music festival in the United States and is the longest-running touring music festival in North America. This year Indie-Life was proud to offer tour management and staffing to headliners, Crown The Empire.

Many young people strive to work or play at a festival of this size, so Indie-Life took the opportunity to reach a younger generation of touring professionals that are involved in making Warped Tour happen. With this knowledge, we took the opportunity to shoot a commercial at the Warped Tour in order to recruit more young people to our company and help them find their way on the road.

After two long months on the road we went home for a couple of weeks, then off again for Japan and Hawaii. Twilight Records, the promoter in Japan, invited Crown The Empire to headline the annual Rise Records Tour, which started in Tokyo. After a couple of great shows in Osaka, Nagoya and an extra show added in Tokyo, it was time to get to the Aloha land, Hawaii. The promoter, Jack from Underworld Events, gave us an amazing welcome as we spent three days before the show in Honolulu. He really went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and had a blast! The show went really well and we can’t wait to go back.
