Details for the annual UPROAR Festival were recently released. Let me say, I think it is ridiculous that there isn't an Ohio date for this tour. Bands will be announced in a week. If you like clues and things, the UPROAR Fest is posting tidbits on their Instagram. When the bands are announced, I'll create a Cred.FM playlist for us to enjoy. Here's the fest info so far:
The fourth annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival is set for shows across North America from August 9 through September 15, 2013. The touring rock music and lifestyle festival--which boasted total attendance of nearly 300,000 in 2012--will feature performances from multi platinum superstars and breaking talent on the Rockstar Energy Drink Main Stage and the Ernie Ball Festival Stage. Look for this year’s bands to be announced on April 22.
Tickets for most shows go on sale Thursday, April 25 at Noon local time and are affordably priced between $10.25 and $89.75 (plus fees). Go to www.RockstarUPROAR.com and www.LiveNation.com for full details and to purchase tickets.
Look for details about the 2013 Ernie Ball Battle Of The Bands to be announced in the coming weeks. As part of the 2012 Battle Of The Bands grand prize package, winners the Chuck Shaffer Picture Show will perform on the Ernie Ball Festival Stage for the entire 2013 UPROAR trek. The band recently recorded an EP with legendary producer Jay Baumgardner at NRG Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA, and won $10,000 worth of music gear and many other prizes as a result of being named the grand prize winner in this annual competition for unsigned bands.
