Festival organizers announced today the much-anticipated return of Rocklahoma, set for Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-30, 2010 in Pryor, Oklahoma. The new, captivating line-up for Rocklahoma highlights some of the biggest rock bands in the United States from the '80s, '90s and today!
Established in 2007 as a classic-rock destination festival, Rocklahoma organizers focused on revamping the 2010 event to encompass a much broader mix of classic, current and up-and-coming rock artists.
The Rocklahoma 2010 lineup:
THEORY OF A DEADMAN
LIKE A STORM
YEAR LONG DISASTER
THE GLITTER BOYS More very special guests will be announced!
ZZ TOP's Billy F. Gibbons commented, "As life-long residents of 'Baja, Oklahoma,' Dusty, Frank and I are looking forward to making the northward trek to Pryor in May. The idea of sharing the stage with so many great, cutting-edge bands out there today is most appealing. It's like rock 'n' roll summer camp; does that make us campers or counselors?"
"The new vision for Rocklahoma is to draw a much wider rock audience by exploring more sides of the genre," commented Joe Litvag, Senior Vice-President of AEG Live and executive consultant to the Rocklahoma organizers. "This is such an amazing location for a multi-day camping festival, and I'm proud of the fact that we've been able to bring together some true icons of rock to perform alongside many of the hottest news and established rock acts in the country! It is definitely going to be a holiday weekend to remember," Litvag concluded.
Three-day passes start at only $95 and will go on-sale on Saturday, February 27 at 10 a.m. CST, exclusively at Rocklahoma.com. Camping add-ons, VIP packages, and seat upgrades will also be offered at the time of purchase.

Festival president Mark Nuessle explains the value and experience that Rocklahoma offers by adding, "It has always been a top priority for Rocklahoma to be an affordable experience for all. Where else can the ultimate rock fan see this many artists for under $100? And for our VIPs to be able to eat and drink for free, at their leisure, as part of the inclusive VIP experience? These are the elements that really make Rocklahoma a one-of-a-kind rock experience!"
