Jefferson Starship lyrics might be the least rock n roll way to describe Rock Fest, but “we built this city on rock n roll” is – all things considered – a pretty fair sum-up of what goes down on Cadott’s festival grounds every summer. It is, quite accurately, a city of its own – a place where rock fans of all ages, shapes, and sizes can come together for a heavy-hitting weekend of some of the genre’s greats.

And today, the fest announced its 2019 lineup for its 26th year, happening July 18-20 (with an extra so-called Bonus Bash on July 17). Topping off the list of nearly 70 bands is big names like Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, Mastodon, and Evanescence. 

As always, it’s sure to be a grand time as the grounds get transformed into the biggest rock party the area has ever seen. Plenty of the biggest names in rock will perform, some choice tribute bands, and local band Stare Across is on the lineup as well (shout out to them).

All Lure Lock Top Tier Lounge, VIP, Reserved Lawn, 3-Day and 1-Day GA tickets are on sale right now – plus VIP and GA camping. You can find that and lots more at www.rock-fest.com. Go get ‘em.

Here’s the lineup in full ...
