WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE was a bucket-list festival for any rock fan. It offered a variety of different sub genre rock artists, which blended perfectly to make up this festival. Out of all of the festivals on the World’s Loudest Month it seemed that WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE offered the most for the more up and coming acts, that you’d typically see on the VANS WARPED TOUR. This year some of those acts included: Memphis May Fire, We Came As Romans, Ghost, Issues, Miss May I, Cane Hill, and Crown The Empire. It was great to see these bands breaking out, and we hope to see more of them in the future!


At this year’s WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE, the entertainment, the experience, and the people were amazing. However, the overall layout seemed to cause large traffic jams and left the non-VIP audience to walk extra distances and possibly miss some of their most anticipated sets throughout the day.


The BIGGEST downside of the festival was that most of the time the bands played at the same time on different stages. So, you had to choose whether to see an old favorite, or discover a new one. However, whichever you chose, WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE had it all, and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did! This year was the festival’s best yet, with more than 50,000 in attendance for the sold-out weekend, marking the biggest rock experience in Florida’s history!
