I'm surprised at some of the bands on this lineup. Got this press release about the Carolina Rebellion yesterday. Of course, this is the same weekend as M3. Thoughts?


A spectacular lineup including some of the biggest names in rock has been announced for the fifth annual Monster Energy Carolina RebellionMay 2 & 3, 2015 at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway just outside Charlotte, NC.

The mid-Atlantic’s biggest rock festival will feature performances from SlipknotKorn (marking a highly-anticipated return to Carolina Rebellion after their on-stage reunion with band-member Head in 2012), GodsmackMarilyn MansonSlayerSlash featuring Myles Kennedy and The ConspiratorsRise AgainstSammy Hagar & The Circle (Michael AnthonyJason Bonham & Vic Johnson), Breaking BenjaminBush, and many more top rock bands. (See below for daily band lineup.)

Corey Taylor of Slipknot says, "We are very excited to be headlining Rebellion this year! We're honored to be playing in the company of Cheap Trick, one of my all time favorites, as well as playing with such good friends like KornHalestorm and Slayer!” 

"Three years ago, we reunited with our brother Head on stage at Carolina Rebellion. Since then, we made a new album and toured the world together. And now we're back to perform our first album in its entirety.  Rebellion is going to be a really special show for us," says Jonathan Davis of Korn.

“Playing with a band like The Circle, we’ve got a set list made in Rock N’ Roll Heaven and a band from Rock N’ Roll Hell,” says Sammy Hagar. “The only missing link is tens of thousands of rocking fans…HELLO CAROLINA!”

“For the 5th annual Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion, we wanted to acknowledge not only the best in current rock with the likes of Slipknot,GodsmackBreaking Benjamin and more, but also celebrate some great iconic rock bands like Sammy Hagar & The CircleCheap TrickSlayerand others to give the Rebels the widest range of Rock N’ Roll possible,” says Co-Executive Producer Gary Spivack of RockHouse Presents. “Rebellion is truly the Carolinas’ biggest music party of the year!”

Based on the festival’s success in 2014--with over 60,000 fans in attendance and camping and VIP packages sold out--the 2015 Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion concert site will be expanded and will feature a fourth stage for band performances.

Monster Energy returns as the festival’s title sponsor and will be on site conducting giveaways, hosting Monster Energy artist signings, and offering Monster Energy Drink samples.
