Welcome To Rockville 2020 lineup announced
Official press release: With a new home at the world-renowned Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida, the 10th year of Welcome To Rockville features an unparalleled lineup of today's top rock and metal artists and up-and-coming talent for Florida's Biggest Rock Experience, happening on Friday, May 8, Saturday, May 9 and Sunday, May 10, 2020. As previously announced, Metallica will exclusively headline all five Danny Wimmer Presents hard rock festivals in 2020, including Welcome To Rockville, in a unique collaboration unprecedented for any American festival promoter or band. In addition to Metallica, who will perform two different sets (Friday, May 8 and Sunday, May 10), fan-favorite Disturbed will headline Saturday, May 9. The diverse lineup also includes Lynyrd Skynyrd (their last show ever in their Northern Florida home area), Godsmack, Deftones, Social Distortion, The Offspring, Staind, Lamb of God, Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, Mastodon, Gojira, Royal Blood, Alter Bridge, The Pretty Reckless, Anthrax, Ghostemane, Hellyeah, Hollywood Undead, Bad Wolves and many more. "As a lifelong fan, it was an overwhelming experience to attend Lynyrd Skynyrd's final hometown show at a sold-out stadium (TIAA Bank Field) in Jacksonville in September of 2018. Lynyrd Skynyrd is a band that has known tragedy and responded with nothing but triumph for over 50 years. They defined Southern rock, and they were a definitive part of my own rock n' roll education growing up in Jacksonville," says Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents. "After nine great years in Jacksonville, it was a difficult decision to move Welcome To Rockville to a new home – but it was a necessary decision for the festival to continue to grow and deliver the kind of experience that Florida's rock fans deserve. I'm so humbled and honored that Lynyrd Skynyrd is coming with us to Daytona Beach to celebrate 10 years of Welcome To Rockville with their last-ever North Florida area show." The three-day destination festival will feature three music stages, premium food and beverage selections and enhanced onsite experiences. Weekend, 2-Day (new for 2020) and Single Day General Admission and VIP passes, as well as tent and RV camping passes for Welcome To Rockville are on sale now at WelcomeToRockvilleFestival.com.
