Once again New England is the stage for a Revolution. Exercising their rights to freedom and the pursuit of happiness, thousands will assemble to let their voices be heard. Amidst the smoke and thunderous sounds, the pulse of a nation will rise up to a flash-point intensity. This time though, the revolution is about a different type of battle; Rock-n-Roll is the right the masses are speaking up for. So step up people and enlist for the REVOLUTION ROCK FESTIVAL!
Legions of fans in New England have desperately wanted a returning festival that is uniquely local. Not a touring festival of national headliners to share with every other state, but one to call their own. Well this September 17th, the folks of AEG Live along with executive festival producer Joe Litvag are finally sparking a Rock event that delivers just that!
The grounds of the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT will be the battlefield for such powerhouses as AVENGED SEVENFOLD, SLAYER, VOLBEAT, CHEVELLE, OF MICE AND MEN, ANTHRAX, GHOST, SEVENDUST, NOTHING MORE, KYNG, THE AMITY AFFLICTION, TWELVE FOOT NINJA, CROBOT, DEVOUR THE DAY, SMASHING SATELLITES, and Boston’s own KILLSWITCH ENGAGE! I mean really, how could you not want to join the ranks to see a list of bands like this?!
Now there are many ticket packages offered; and if you want to rest your battered bones, there are various lodging, travel and VIP lounge packages as well. If you need a warm up for the revolution, there is a pre-party event the night before, featuring the tribute bands STRUTTER and THUNDER STRUCK.
SIXX STRINGS will have WZLX’s Karlson and McKenzie show producer METALHEAD MIKE there reporting on all the chaos, so make sure you keep an eye out for what he comes back with!
