"Rocklahoma has quickly become the rock 'n' roll party of Memorial Day Weekend, and 2012 is going to take the party to a whole new level," commented Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live. "We've got a great balance of talent this year with some amazing classic artists covering the last three decades along with plenty of today's rock. But the most unique part of this festival is definitely the campground experience…Three days and nights of craziness and chaos that only Rocklahoma can deliver!"

Rocklahoma is located just 45 minutes northeast of Tulsa, in Pryor, Oklahoma. The "Catch the Fever" Festival Grounds is a premier destination for a multi-day festival and includes on-site camping with access to restrooms and shower house, a general store for campers, VIP reserved seating, hospitality areas and much more.

Established in 2007 as a classic rock destination festival with the motto "life, liberty and the pursuit of rock," Rocklahoma was revamped in 2010 as organizers teamed with AEG Live to create an event encompassing a much broader mix of classic, current and up-and-coming rock artists. In 2011, a record-breaking crowd of over 35,000 fans turned out for the festival, which raised over $10,000 for the American Red Cross as part of their tornado relief efforts in nearby Joplin, Missouri. The festival celebrates its sixth year in 2012.
