13 times the scene has shown its love for ‘Harry Potter’

The scene has shown some serious love for the Harry Potter world, and in honor of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone’s 20th birthday, we decided to compile some of our favorite moments that prove the scene’s love of the wizarding series.

Take a peek at the songs, tattoos, snare drums and more below!

With Confidence stand up to fear itself with their track “Voldemort”

With Confidence’s hit “Voldemort” clearly holds a reference to the wizarding world, and frontman Jayden Seeley says the track is inspired by the name Voldemort itself. “‘Fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.’ Voldemort is my personification of mental illness and this song is a big, happy and carefree fuck you to Voldemort.”

From First To Last channel the Marauder’s Map with “I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good”

Harry Potter fans will recognize From First To Last’s reference to J. K. Rowling’s magical series—and the Marauder’s Map reference. The map first appears in the third book of the series, Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, and in order to reveal the map, you must vow, “I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

Tom Felton is a fan of Movements and Silverstein (and they’re fans of him, too)

 

Hey @t22felton good meeting you lol

A post shared by Movements (@movementsofficial) on

Whether or not you were a fan of the Slytherin House, it’s clear that Tom Felton has good taste in music. He was spotted at The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver during Good Charlotte's tour stop with Silverstein, Palaye Royale and Movements. The actor snapped pictures with both Shane Told of Silverstein as well as Movements, and both featured the special guest on their Instagram pages. Now this is truly magical.

Paramore’s Hayley Williams showing SXSW some serious Harry Potter love

 

Our 1st album is 8 yrs old today!! So crazy. Touring on our debut album held some of the greatest experiences I'll ever know. Seeing the country for the 1st time from the back of our 12-passenger van, getting kicked out of venues after our sets cause we weren't old enough to really hang there, playing our first sold out show at Beat Kitchen in Chicago! So many memories. Picture to the left is from our 1st SXSW show. (Jerm and I were trying so hard to be tough, even though he's wearing a headband and I'm wearing a Harry Potter shirt.) And the one on the bottom right is from our very 1st show ever after we got signed to @fueledby ... We opened for Fall Out Boy, The Academy Is... , Gym Class Heroes and Silverstein. (Yeah, some newbies don't know but I played guitar at acoustic shows back then). Anyway, thank you so much to everyone who's come along with us on the most ridiculous rollercoaster ride ever. Here's to 8 more years?!

A post shared by Hayley from Paramore (@yelyahwilliams) on

On the eighth anniversary of Paramore’s first album (back in 2013!), Williams shared an adorable photo collage from some of their earliest memories—including a photo from their first SXSW show, where she is rocking a seriously cool Harry Potter shirt.

Pierce The Veil’s Mike Fuentes admits he is a true Potterhead

The drummer is definitely the more inked-up Fuentes brother. He simply uses different means of expressing himself than brother and bandmate Vic. Watch the video at 1:14 to see some of Mike’s Harry Potter inspired tats, including the Deathly Hallows symbol on his right palm, a groovy “vato Hedwig” on his right thigh and a portrait of young Harry on his left thigh.

All Time Low talked about Ravenclaw on stage one time...

All Time Low’s Alex Gaskarth talks about those amazing Harry Potter house quizzes (take our quiz now to see which house you belong to!), and he had a few not-so-fond words to say about the Ravenclaw house… (No worries, we still stand with you, Ravenclaws!)

When Set It Off’s Zach DeWall is basically all of us

Set It Off may have been touring the U.K., but according to guitarist DeWall, it’s actually the land of Harry Potter, and, TBH, we agree. There’s also this tweet:
