Danny Wimmer Presents, the same music festival producers bringing you the INSANE lineup that we told you about for Welcome to Rockville, are bringing even more rock to the East Coast in May with Epicenter Festival, a brand new 3-day festival in Rockingham, North Carolina. The festival takes place May 10 – 12. That means you’ll have just enough time to get a neck brace between Welcome to Rockville and Epicenter. And let me tell you… you’re gonna need it. Foo Fighters, Tool and Korn are headlining, with help from Rob Zombie, Judas Priest, Bring Me The Horizon, The Prodigy, The Cult, 311, Evanescence, Bush, +Live+ and over 60 other artists on four stages.
The expansive Rockingham Festival Grounds, being developed in coordination with Rockingham Dragway, The Rock (Rockingham Speedway), and other local land owners, promise nonstop entertainment, extensive camping options, and no curfew.
No curfew? Screw you, Mom, I’m not coming home til Monday! I’m packing my sleeping bag and pillow, too, cause it looks like camping for Epicenter is going to be a non-stop party!
Camping at Epicenter will let patrons keep the rock n’ roll party going all through the weekend and will set this festival apart from other U.S. rock shows. Camping spots are connected to the festival grounds and include perks like access to showers, portable restrooms, food and drink vendors, charging stations, information and medical services, as well as a Thursday night pre-show party. Campers will also have late night access to Rockingham Village, an impressive promenade featuring food, drinks, merch shopping, entertainment, art and activities until 2:00 AM daily. Rockingham Village will be conveniently located immediately in front of the venue, adjacent to the North Premium campgrounds. Camping options will include immersive, Premium Spaces on the North Side of the site as well as free options in the South Side campgrounds.
Danny Wimmer Presents continues to prove that they know how to put on a kick ass festival. Their other events include Aftershock Festival, Bourbon & Beyond, Chicago Open Air, Epicenter Festival, Hometown Rising, Louder Than Life, Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival, and Welcome To Rockville.
Even the artists are pumped for this one!
The members of Korn explain, “There are many defining moments that dramatically mark a band’s history, and one such moment in time happened in North Carolina with Korn. NC holds a special place in Korn’s heart, as we unexpectedly reunited with our old friend Head. It’s been a great 6+ years with Head back in Korn and we look forward to rocking NC again with Foo Fighters, Tool and many other great bands.”
Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes says, “We’re very excited to be playing next year’s Epicenter Festival in Rockingham. It’s a privilege to be sharing a stage alongside some of our favourite acts, and to be back in North Carolina.”
