Festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents has released the following update about their 2020 music festivals:

There are no pre-existing guidelines for what festivals should be doing during this unprecedented time.  Like the rest of the music industry, we continue to assess new information and make the best-educated decisions possible.  We know you have been anxious for updates from us and we are at a point where we can answer many of your questions about how each of our festivals may be affected by COVID-19. 

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.

Temperatures rose into the high 80’s on the final day of Rockville 2018 in Jacksonville Florida as veteran rock bands dominated the roster. The Foo Fighters turned in the best set of the festival stretching more than two hours, past the official festival. Billy Idol and his band also turned in a set of classic rock hits.

It was another gorgeous spring afternoon in Jacksonville on Saturday, April 28, the second day of 2018 Welcome to Rockville Music Festival. A bigger audience than the day before flowed into the festival early on. By the time the Swedish heavy metal band Avatar hit the main stage in the early afternoon, a large crowd had already formed. One of the only groups on the roster from Europe, these colorful musicians have been keeping Glam rock alive in their unique way, since 2001.

One of the biggest rock festivals of the year is set to take place in Jacksonville Florida, April 27-29. The massive three-day festival will feature some of the biggest names in rock on three stages for the entire three days. Headliners include heavy metal generational bookends Avenge Sevenfold and Ozzy Osbourne, hard rockers Foo Fighters and Queens of The Stone Age and even veteran punk rocker Billy Idol. The massive lineup features crowd favorites from nearly every genre of rock music.

The lineup of festival experiences has been announced for the eighth annual Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, Friday, April 27, Saturday, April 28 & Sunday, April 29, 2018 at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, FL.

Florida’s Biggest Rock Experience grows to three days in 2018 with Foo Fighters, Ozzy Osbourne, Avenged Sevenfold, Queens of the Stone Age, Billy Idol, Godsmack, Stone Sour, and Five Finger Death Punch leading an incredible talent lineup not seen at any other U.S. rock festival.
