Monster Energy Rock Allegiance producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents says: "When we came to Philadelphia last year, we knew there was a demand for this kind of festival in the market, but the response exceeded our expectations. Growing to two days in our second year was an obvious decision, and we're looking forward to giving fans an even better experience in 2016."

"Last year's Monster Energy Rock Allegiance was a huge success on so many levels," adds Geoff Gordon, Live Nation Philadelphia Regional President. "We were proud to bring this venue their first ever concert; a record-setting, sold out smash hit. The audience had such a great time enjoying a unique experience of music and lifestyle — we knew in 2016 we could turn it up a notch!"

Monster Energy Rock Allegiance is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, Live Nation, and Spectra at Talen Energy Stadium.
