Disturbed, Godsmack and Incubus will headline the 25th annual Rock Fest, set to take place from July 12th through the 15th in Cadott, Wisconsin. More than 65 bands will perform throughout the three-day event, including Rise Against, Halestorm, Seether, Bush, Black Label Society, Nothing More, Sevendust, Ace Frehley, Pop Evil, Beartooth, Adelitas Way, Red, Fozzy and dozens more. There's still one band near the top of the bill that has yet to be revealed.
Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath explained what he likes about the big festival shows: "The festivals are always a lot of fun. They're just like this huge rally of people. You get to play for fans that aren't necessarily your own fans. You get to go out there and play for people who may have never heard of you before, so that's always a cool opportunity."
- Fans holding tickets for all three days will also be invited to a "bonus bash" taking place on Wednesday, July 11th.
- The event is notably the first confirmed live show of 2018 for Disturbed, who have been off the road since completing the tour cycle last year for its 2015 album, Immortalized.
- The Chicago-based band has yet to announce whether it will have a new LP out this year.
- Godsmack has also been working on a new studio set, its seventh, which will coincide this year with the 20th anniversary of Godsmack's debut album.
SIDE NOTES: Rock Fest is set on 320 acres in central Wisconsin, and fans are able to camp on-site in one of nearly 7,000 campsites surrounding the concert grounds. Guests staying in nearby hotels can purchase shuttle rides to the fest grounds via the Rock Fest web site.
