Carolina Rebellion Becomes EPICENTER FESTIVAL!


After 8 years Carolina Rebellion has come to an end with the split between DWP and AEG. Because of the naming rights the festival had to be renamed for DWP to continue with the festival. As of today it was released that the new name of the festival will be the EPICENTER Festival. The festival will still take place in early May on May 10th thru 12th. However, the location has changed from Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina where Carolina Rebellion was held the past several years to Rockingham, North Carolina at the Rockingham Festival Grounds where the festival was originally held in its early years. The location change also brings with it some additional advantages for the festival. DWP has stated “With the move to our new site, we’re developing 140 acres into festival grounds, which will allow us to provide enhances camping amenities, nighttime entertainment with no curfew, and expanded food and beverage offerings, all highlighted by a massive music lineup covering the spectrum of rock and alternative music.” 

One of the biggest things is the “nighttime entertainment with no curfew”. We often find ourselves waking up super early to get to the festival and see bands all day long and then everything shuts down around 10-11pm. Hopefully this will allow the festival to start a little later in the day (as most of us headbangers aren’t morning people) and go a little further up into the night. We have also heard that DWP has spent more on booking bands for this festival than any festival they have done in the past, so that tells us there should be some big headliners and a great lineup of bands. The full lineup for the festivals inaugural year will be released on December 10th, at 9am EST. We will have that news available for you as soon as it drops. Until then you can visit the festival website at
