Lets just call it now, in early December: 2017 is going to be amazing for several reasons. The festivals alone are going to make the year worthy of rembrance for years to come. On Dec 5th, Monster Energy’s Welcome to Rockville was announced. Florida’s biggest rock experience which has sold out the last 3 years has released their band lineup and we are excited! I was anticipating a general lineup, but am pleased to see Soundgarden, Def Leppard and A Perfect Circle leading the lineup. Not only do we have some amazing headliners, we will also see Offspring, Mastadon, Chevelle, Seether, Papa Roach and many more at this event on April 29th and 30th at Metropolitan Park in jacksonville Florida.

An announcement video was released:

Danny Wimmer, Founder and Producer of Danny Wimmer Presents stated: Welcome To Rockville has grown from a single day event into Florida’s biggest rock festival experience of the year. The 2017 lineup is a celebration of all things rock, with legends like Soundgarden, Def Leppard, A Perfect Circle and The Offspring balanced with the best of what’s current and hot in rock and metal culture. This is a greatest hits celebration for all ages,”
