(PCM) An expanded Carolina Rebellion returns May 4 & 5 at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte. After uncharted success in 2012, the Mid-Atlantic’s biggest rock festival is growing to two full days in its third year and will feature more camping and VIP space at its new location.
Carolina Rebellion 2013 features a lineup full of rock heavyweights, including: Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Limp Bizkit, Rise Against, Bush, Deftones, 3 Doors Down, Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Bullet For My Valentine, Buckcherry, Volbeat, Halestorm, Asking Alexandria, All That Remains, Steel Panther, Device (with David Draiman), Hollywood Undead, Sick Puppies, In This Moment, Escape The Fate, Pop Evil, Nonpoint, Otherwise, Aranda, Thousand Foot Krutch, Red Line Chemistry, Young Guns, Tracer, American Fangs and Heaven’s Basement.
The bands listed above will perform on one of the three festival stages: the Monster Energy ‘Carolina Stage’, the Monster Energy ‘Rebellion Stage’ and the Jägermeister Stage. In addition, f.y.e will have a special artist tent where bands will stop by throughout the day to meet fans and sign their CDs.
“After wrapping up our last U.S. tour, we were planning on recharging our batteries for awhile, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to play with the mighty Soundgarden in what will be one of the only shows we’ll play in the U.S. this year,” says Tim Mcllrath of Rise Against.
Michael Poulsen of Volbeat comments, “In Europe and the U.S., we have enjoyed the experiences that come from being a part of the festival environment, just as the fans do. Looking forward to Carolina Rebellion!”
“The ‘Rebels’ spoke and we listened,” says Gary Spivack, Co-Executive Producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment. “More days, a new venue, huge bands…It’s our mission for Rebellion to be the biggest and best rock festival in the entire Mid-Atlantic region. We have our home at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and can’t wait for May 4 and 5!”
