"This is our first year on the UPROAR Festival, and we are honored to be sharing the stage with all the bands...Trust me this is one tour you do not want to miss," says Brent Smith of Shinedown.
Godsmack's Shannon Larkin proclaims, “Nothing makes us feel more at home than playing the best festival in the U.S. with the baddest-ass line-up of the year! You better hold on to your hats America, 'cause this fall we're coming at you hard ‘n loud with the power hour Smackdown!"
The touring music and lifestyle festival continues to grow. Despite encountering hurricanes, floods and other inclement weather in 2011, the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival packed houses, with over 324,800 in total attendance. UPROAR expands in 2012 by adding a third stage and more bands to the lineup.
Live Nation is the national tour promoter for the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival.
"We're really excited about this year’s awesome lineup,” say tour producers John Oakes and John Reese. “It’s incredible to have so many of the biggest bands in rock together with some newer bands that are blowing up. By adding a second stage to the festival area and including even more great talent, we're stepping things up a notch for the UPROAR fans."
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival will entertain fans for a full afternoon and evening, with performances from the hottest rock bands, along with a concourse midway featuring band autograph signings, vendors and other activities. The festival is produced by John Reese, John Oakes and CAA in conjunction with Live Nation.
