Epicenter Festival Announces 2019 Lineup
Rock music might be largely dead on the airwaves, but it’s a huge draw for festival lovers. Yet another festival focused on the drum-guitar-bass setup that ruled popular music for about 50 years has been announced–and the lineup is a who’s who of the booming rock fest circuit.
The inaugural Epicenter Festival will feature Foo Fighters, Tool and Korn as the main acts, with Judas Priest and The Cult playing for the older heads. In addition to those names, this first-year fest landed 311, Mastodon, Live, Bush, Bring Me The Horizon, Rob Zombie, Evanescence and The Prodigy.
The festival runs from May 10-12 at the Rockingham Festival Grounds in North Carolina and is aiming to draw in all stripes of rock and roll fans. The roster of performers features everything from the inevitable big rock headliners (looking at you, Foo Fighters) to nu-metal, SoCal beach music to grunge. While almost all of the bands performing could be considered legacy acts, Epicenter dives a bit deeper for groups that are considered classics even among the retro-leaning universe of large rock shows.
Tickets go on sale December 14; check below for the full lineup and ticket info.
