If you don't care for the Rocklahoma 2008 line-up there is an alternative: the South Texas Rock Fest.
The San Antonio-based event is three days and features some great Glam bands. It is sponsored by Miller-Lite and Harley-Davidson.
Confirmed bands for the South Texas Rock Fest are:
Bang Tango, House of Lords, Stephen Pearcy, Jackyl, Helix, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Firehouse, Y&T, Queensryche, Dokken, Skid Row, Pretty Boy Floyd, Mad Margritt and more. Evidently there are several bands still to be announced...
Did I mention the South Texas Rock Fest is the exact same weekend as Rocklahoma? Exactly - it is July 11-13. Talk about a bummer. If the festivals were different weekends, I would go to both.
Here's something else you need to know: tickets for the South Texas Rock Fest go on sale today. V.I.P. seats are just $250 bucks and include beer and food. Here's the caveat: there are only 100 V.I.P. seats - so you better act fast. Camping is free with a paid ticket.
Just look at what you get with your V.I.P. ticket:
- VIP identification badge.
- Event T-shirt.
- Prime VIP seating on the stage.
- Private VIP tent with lounging sofas.
- Several VIP Receptions with food and drink.
- A meal all three evenings along with hors d'oeuvres all day.
- Meet & Greets with the bands when available.
- Massage therapist.
- VIP Games.
- Men or women's VIP gift.
- Private Party in the VIP lounge after the show.
- Free Beer, Sodas, Water, Red Bull
If funds are tight (and they always are in my household!) you can get a three day general admission pass for just $75. That's a deal.

***What do you think of this festival competing with Rocklahoma? I think the promoters are brave to say the least.
