Rock Allegiance 2015 Review: Appears Festival With Have a Permanent Home In The Philadelphia, PA Region

Zombie4
Korn3

(PCM) We were beyond stoked to attend the Rock Allegiance Festival held at PPL Park in Chester, PA and I have to say that it was one of the most well-organized and beautifully run festivals that we have had the pleasure of attending. Rock Allegiance featured over 12 hours of music, craft beer and gourmet man food with 15+ bands performing on three stages. This year’s stellar line-up featured the talent of Rob Zombie, Korn, Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, In This Moment, Pop Evil, Atreyu, Bring Me The Horizon and many many more who truly brought their A-game to the sell-out crowd of over 26,000 fans in attendance.

Rock Allegiance was PPL Park’s first-ever live music event and the sell-out crowd broke the venues previous attendance records by nearly 10,000 individuals. Producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents had the following comments “To set an attendance record in a new venue with a new festival, I couldn’t be more pleased with our choice to have Monster Energy Rock Allegiance in Philadelphia and to cement the city as our official home for many years to come”.

The layout featured two main stages that were situated directly next to one another inside the stadium bowl, so that once one stage ended the other almost immediately began. This made it incredibly easy for fans to simply turn themselves in one direction or another and not miss a single moment of their favorite artists performance. There was also a tent stage set-up directly outside the main stadium that also featured a fantastic array of bands such as Hollywood Undead, Saint Asonia, Butcher Babies, Charm City Devils and From Ashes To New.

Atreyu1
Pop-Evil2

With so many great performances throughout the day it was an incredibly difficult task to narrow down our highlights from the day. We found ourselves to be incredibly impressed with Atreyu who are making a comeback in a huge way this year after taking a bit of hiatus, as well as, Pop Evil who are truly enjoying the fruits of their labor with the amazing success of their new album “UP” and hit single “Footsteps” which is currently being used in the national ad campaign for Dodge.  We also have to note that we were blown away yet again by Saint Asonia. After seeing their debut performance at this year’s Rock On The Range back in May, they are truly showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

ITM3

FFDP2

The theatrics from an In This Moment performance are always phenomenal, as vocalist Maria Brink has the audience captivated from beginning to end and Papa Roach are the masters of amping up the energy in the room and truly getting the party kicked well into high gear.  Another band that appears to get better and better with age is Five Finger Death Punch. They are truly a force to be reckoned with in the rock universe and bring such amazing raw aggression and emotion to their live performance.  One can’t help but wish to dive head first into the mosh pit and go absolutely wild. Just have to note that vocalist Ivan Moody’s “skin” jacket was probably one of the creepiest things we’ve seen in awhile!

Godsmack2
Korn2

We never have enough good things to say about a live performance from Godsmack and their appearance at Rock Allegiance even further cemented our undying love for this band. They blasted through their set filled with hit after hit and it was over almost as quickly as it began. To close out the evening, we caught sets from hard-hitting rockers KORN and Rob Zombie who both did an amazing job at keeping the energy levels high despite the fact that fans had been rocking out since the early afternoon hours. We have said it before and will say it again, KORN has been sounding a lot more refreshed than in years past and appear to be truly enjoying themselves on the stage. Front man Jonathan Davis knows how to take control of the stage and the band performs like a well-oiled machine.

Zombie2
Zombie7

Following KORN, it was time to get the Zombie party started!  No matter how many times we have seen Rob Zombie live, we still find ourselves belting out all of the lyrics and jumping around like crazy to our favorite songs. Once Zombie takes the stage, he is like a whirlwind, leaping back and forth across the stage risers and even jumping off the stage completely to perform up close and personal with fans down in the crowd. Zombie walked the barrier several times during “Never Gonna Stop” and at one point even ran out deep in the crowd to perform at the soundboard giving fans who were further back in the stadium a more personal experience. Guitarist John 5 was spot-on and is absolutely hypnotic to watch on the stage, we are on the edge of our seats in anticipation for Zombie’s upcoming new album to see just what he has in-store for us next!

After a full day of rock n’ roll we weren’t sure we could muster the energy for anything else, but when a band like Steel Panther is playing the after party it is certainly worth staying!  We partied for a few songs and had a few laughs and then it was time for our rockin’ day to come to an end!  What was so incredible about the Rock Allegiance line-up is that nearly all of the band’s featured on the bill are headline worthy in their own right and gathering them all together in once place to celebrate the spirit of rock n’ roll was truly a magical experience.

Sold-Out Carolina Rebellion Was The Biggest And Best Yet!

CR1

CR2

(PCM) Monster Energy’s Carolina Rebellion festival held at the Rock City Campgrounds of the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC May 2nd and 3rd, celebrated its’ five year anniversary in quite the epic fashion with a sell-out crowd of over 80,000 in attendance each day.  It now seems that the festival has truly found its’ home at the Speedway and Carolina Rebellion 2015 was certainly the biggest and best yet!

We couldn’t believe our eyes when first entering the festival grounds and seeing just how much of an expansion took place over the past year. The days of sound bleed between the stages and people being over-crowded in one area are long gone. The expansion of the festival grounds provided a much more open and less congested feel throughout the course of the weekend. Also, the addition of not only one, but two VIP tents this year also did an amazing job at making the crowd a bit more comfortable as they featured their own private bathrooms, bars and of course delicious food.

CR3
CR4

Aside from of course the music which we will get to in a second, Carolina Rebellion provided a ton of activities throughout the festival grounds to keep attendees entertained in-between performances or when you needed a break from the chaos. Crazy Dave’s Music Experience had a huge tent set up where you could escape for a little bit and try out several instruments, as well as, tour the incredible Dimebag Darrell exhibit. We also took the virtual tour of the Jack Daniels distillery as well as, sampled some incredible food choices from various vendors. Trust us, the Munch Bowl from the Up In Smoke truck was pure heaven!

Hollywood-Undead6
Rise-Against3

The spirit and diversity of music is truly what Carolina Rebellion is all about and this year’s line-up certainly did not disappoint. We started off Saturday catching sets from Islander, We Are Harlot, Of Mice & Men. The party really got started once Hollywood Undead took to the stage, definitely one of my festival favorites, plus we got to witness J-Dog propose to his girlfriend Vanessa in front of everyone in attendance (for those wondering…she said yes, of course). Newcomers Periphery put on an excellent show and mid-afternoon sets from both Papa Roach and Rise Against kept the crowd amped and energized for the evenings headline performances from both Marilyn Manson and Korn.

CR5
Slayer4

On Sunday we started our day with quite a wake-up call from The Butcher Babies who provided a jolt of pure adrenaline to anyone watching their set. Surprisingly one of the craziest crowds of the day was for Breaking Benjamin’s performance. There were wall to wall fans absolutely losing their minds for this band and despite the fact that they took a bit of hiatus, watching them perform was like no time had passed at all. Slash feat. Myles Kennedy were fantastic and you can never go wrong with Slayer at a rock festival at any time or any place. After watching Godsmack churn through their hits, it was finally time for Slipknot to bring Carolina Rebellion 2015 to a close. Slipknot never fail to deliver live and their performance to close out Rebellion was spot-on!  They create such an incredible visual spectacle on stage and are truly some of the most engaging performers currently out there today. We could think of no better way to end Carolina Rebellion 2015 and we absolutely can’t wait to do it all again next year!
