Rob Zombie And Korn To Destroy Florida In One Weekend

The weekend of April 26th looks like it’s going to be the hottest weekend in Florida all year… and it won’t even be summer yet. There are two very good reasons for my prediciton, which doesn’t rest on just Rob Zombie or Korn.

There are two big music events happening on this particular weekend. First there’s Monster Energy’s Fort Rock at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers on April 26th. Second there’s Welcome to Rockville Festival at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville on April 26th and 27th.

The first thing you might notice is that Fort Rock is pretty much identical to day two at Rockville. The other thing you’ll notice is that these events are happening at opposite ends of the peninsula. If for some reason you were planning to see the same show two days in a row, you’ll be spending a few hours on the road.

Check out the details below.


Monster Energy’s Fort Rock

When: April 26
Where: JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida

5FDP is incredibly excited to be part of the kickoff of the World’s Loudest Month. Having already ‘rocked’ Rockville, this will be our first time bringing it to Fort Myers. We are blessed to have so many fans in Florida that made it possible for the band to step up as a festival headliner standing beside giants like Korn and Rob Zombie! Thank you, Florida. See you all soon!

Welcome to Rockville Festival

When: April 26th and 27th
Where: Metropolitan Park, Jacksonville, Florida

ROCKVILLE

2014 marks the fourth annual Welcome to Rockville festival, which grows each an every year. Last year’s event hosted more than 25,000 rabid heavy metal fans, and this year should be even bigger. I mean, last year had Alice in Chains headlining on day one, which is fine, AIC is great, but Limp Bizkit co-headlined, which means bathroom break and beer run. On day two, Lynyrd Skynyrd headlined, making them the festival’s headlining act. Um, what?

So, yeah, this year’s lineup is looking drastically better. Ticket information follows the lineup below.
