Stone Temple Pilots, Creed, Godsmack, Hinder Lead Rock N' Rev Festival
With an unrivaled lineup of 20 bands over five nights and spectacular fireworks displays each night in the nation's largest outdoor amphitheater at the 600-acre Glencoe CampResort, the Rock N' Rev Festival promises to be the hands-down largest party ever thrown at the world's largest motorcycle event, which annually draws over a half million patrons. World famous showman Jim Rose and his side circus are set to emcee the five-day event and give attendees a show they will never forget. Eagles of Death Metal, The Darling Stilettos, Pop Evil, Skillet, and Swayback are just some of the other bands making massive music at this colossal biker bash. Stay tuned for major announcements of many more bands being added in the weeks ahead!
Jim Rose will be Master of Ceremonies at the Rock N' Rev Festival all week and will have his wildly acclaimed modern day sideshow, the Jim Rose Circus, unfurling shows between acts nightly. The sideshow originally came to prominence on Lollapalooza's second stage, this is the first time in almost 20 years that Jim has returned to the stage at a large-scale festival as Master of Ceremonies.
"This makes Lollapalooza look like Littlepalooza," says Rose. "This makes Ozzfest seem like Blahfest. Screw Bonnaroo, Rock'N Rev is epic! And I plan on bringing thrills, chills and doctor bills, many of it never seen before."
Everything about the Rock N' Rev Festival will appeal to the "leather and chrome" sensibilities in everyone who attends, from those who embody the biker life style to the more casually minded weekend warriors and their families. The Vendor Village will be overflowing with an assortment of food, clothing, gear and other accessories, including loads of top tattoo artists and the best barbeque and related cooking specialists from the nation's sauciest hotspots such as Austin, Memphis, Chicago, and New Orleans. The overall Mardi Gras atmosphere will recall some of Europe's top festivals, with a decidedly American flair. After all, biking and rock 'n' roll are two of America's greatest heritages.
