Scion Rock Fest 2012 slated for Tampa, Florida

Fri, April 13, 2012 5:35 AM PT12,151 views

Unless organizers of the Scion Rock Fest like messing with people, Scion Rock Fest 2012 will take place in Tampa, FL at the Ritz Theatre in Ybor City. Earlier this week the people at Scion A/V Metal posted the following photograph with the caption "Scion Rock Fest 2012": Ritz Theatre in Tampa Though no further details were provided, that photo most definitely shows the Ritz Theatre in Tampa. Previous Scion Rock Fest events have all taken place on a Saturday, and were officially announced about a month prior to the shows. As such, we speculate that Scion Rock Fest 2012 will take place on June 2nd, since the venue is booked that day for an undisclosed event. Either way, we do know one thing: Eyehategod will not be performing. The band posted the following just hours ago via Facebook: "Eyehategod officially banned by Scion!!"
Update: Scion Rock Fest 2012 has officially been confirmed for June 2nd in Tampa, FL. However, the band lineup has yet to be announced.

think merch sales people are bad, wait til the Scion reps tackle you to check out their 2013 XB

"think merch sales people are bad, wait til the Scion reps tackle you to check out their 2013 XB" Have you ever been to a Scion Rock Fest before? You barely even see the Scion logo anywhere, much less get accosted by car salesmen to buy their cars. They've never even had a single car parked on site.

the first scion rock fest in atlanta was fantastic. The scion logo wasn't shoved down your throat, the venue was perfect for such a large show, and it being 18+ kept those youngins away. Let's hope this years lineup isn't a bunch of shitty hyped up deathcore bands.

^knowing the tampa scene it will be


anonymous 4/17/2012 8:24:21 AM

what do you know about the Tampa scene? That they have one of the richest histories of metal in the entire world? I'm willing to bet that you don't know that based on your stupid comment. Look it up dumbass, before you start running your fingers off.


anonymous 4/17/2012 9:22:48 AM

Who's driving a Scion into the pit?


AdamSuperfan 4/17/2012 12:25:09 PM

Rumor has it SLEEP is headlining...


anonymous 4/21/2012 7:46:09 AM

This looks like its going to be incredible! I am so glad I live in Sarasota! Scion rules!
