The 6th annual line up for the rock and roll festival that graces the Carolinas has finally been announced! Carolina Rebellion 2016 is back and better than ever with a full 3 days of rock for Rebels across the nation making their way out to the Charlotte Motor Speedway this May 6th, 7th, and 8th. This is the first year the festival has provided 3 days, arguably bringing it up to the same level as Ohio's Rock on the Range.
When the line up was announced yesterday, Gary Spivack, the man behind the curtain, explained that he wanted to keep this festival a pure rock and roll festival. Not necessarily heavy metal or alternative rock, but pure rock and roll. Based on this line up I'd say that was certainly accomplished, pleasing a large range of rock fans.
Day 1 plays host to more classic rock legends, including ZZ Top, The Scorpions, and of course, Lynyrd Skynyrd. Also attending Day 1 are other well known rock favorites, 3 Doors Down, Collective Soul, Black Stone Cherry, Hell Yeah, Filter, Candlebox, and the return of Sick Puppies and Lacy Sturm formerly of Flyleaf, among many others. Day 2 caters to Rebellion favorites Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, A Day To Remember, Bullet For My Valentine, Saint Asonia, Sevendust, Grammy Nominees Ghost, and North Carolina's own Failure Anthem and more. Disturbed returns and headlines the 3rd and final day of the festival with Rob Zombie, Deftones, Alice Cooper, Bring Me The Horizon, Asking Alexandria, Thousand Foot Krutch and many more.
If you want to go into Carolina Rebellion history as being there for the first time the fesitval expands to 3 days then hurry and get your tickets now as it is bound to sell out. This line up caters to everyone and anyone who enjoys rock and roll so if that includes you, definitely make time for this festival and be part of one of the biggest rock shows to come to the Carolinas!
