Vans Warped Tour‘s Burgettstown date was a really hot one, and December’s Tragedy’s Kyle Fletchers can tell you all about it.
Just a few days after 200 fans had to be treated for heat exposure at the Warped Tour in Nashville, Tennessee, the same happened in Pennsylvania.
According to EMS officials, at least 100 Warped Tour attendees were treated for heat-related issues at the venue and 27 were transported hospitals o July 16.
The story was shared by KDKA-TV. Reporters interviewed a few fans after the show, as well as one of the musicians performing.
Kyle Fletchers of December’s Tragedy explained he could feel the heat onstage, especially because his and his bandmates’ synchronized moves.
“It’s super-hot on stage,” he says. “My friends and I are always bouncing around, and we do this synchronized thing.”
If can’t remember ever seeing Kyle Fletchers and December’s Tragedy on the Warped Tour lineup, you’re not going crazy. They’re not real.
We can explain—actually, Waterparks‘ frontman Awsten Knight can.
“OK SO YESTERDAY I SAW NEWS CREWS OUTSIDE OF WARPED TOUR AND JUMPED OUT OF THE CAR TO TALK TO THEM,” he shared on Twitter. “THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER ACCOMPLISHED. ENJOY.”

Ok, but seriously, Awsten? We can’t stop laughing.
And, in case you’re wondering… Yes, Awsten already changed his name and bio on Twitter. He’s apparently now the vocalist and guitarist in December’s Tragedy, who are playing the Full Sail Stage.
