I’ve lived in Charlotte for nine years and I’ll admit, Rockingham, North Carolina is a place I have never heard of until I received the Epicenter Festival lineup. Now in 37 days I’ll discover a new rock n’ roll paradise. Featuring Korn, Rob Zombie, Evanescence, Machine Gun Kelly, Beartooth, Knocked Loose, Tool, The Cult, YUNG BLUD, Bring Me The Horizon, this is the most stacked rock lineup I’ve seen in a long time from May 10th-12th.
Although it’s less than two hours away from Charlotte, camping at this location seems like everything I ever wanted with late night access to drinks, food and parties, so sign me up! From the Epicenter website:
Camping at Epicenter Festival allows patrons to keep the rock n’ roll party going all through the weekend and sets this festival apart from other U.S. rock shows. Camping spots are connected to the festival grounds and include perks like access to showers, portable restrooms, food and drink vendors, charging stations, information and medical services, as well as a Thursday night pre-show rock party.
