We found Brian Marquis manning the Acoustic Basement Tent at this year’s Van’s Warped Tour and decided to ask the talented musician a few questions on life, music, and his time at Warped’s acoustic stage. Check out our Q&A below.
You’re now a veteran of the Van’s Warped Tour Acoustic Basement Stage. How does your experience on Warped this year compare to previous ones?
Brian: It’s pretty cool! The first year was kind of an experiment and trying to see how it works. The second year was troubleshooting, making the stage better, and trying to make things all around a better experience for everybody and the artists. So, going into the third year, I felt more confident with my setup and how to run things. It’s nice to feel like I’ve really got a hang of it now. I’ve got the hang of booking well rounded artists and a dynamic line-up. I also have a new record out so it’s brought a little bit of a new energy into the tour for me. Now, I feel like I’m in a really good spot with the tent.
Nick Santino sounded really great so you must be doing it right!
Brian: Yeah, Nick’s great.
You do production for the Acoustic Basement tent which is something that many people might not know. What’s the average day like for you on this tour?
