2018’s Carolina Rebellion was the the last under that name, it appears, as the producers of the hard rock and heavy metal festival in North Carolina put that event to rest and begin anew with a stacked lineup for the inaugural Epicenter Festival.
And, my, how stacked it is! Foo Fighters, Tool and Korn lead the charge for the fest May 10-12, 2019, in Rockingham, North Carolina. Tickets, VIP and camping packages for the Epicenter fest go on sale this Friday, Dec. 14, at noon EST.
