The festival will feature two main stages for the biggest acts in rock today, both sponsored by Monster Energy.

"Strap yourself in and hold on tight... GODSMACK is coming to Carolina Rebellion to kick y'all a new asshole!!" says Sully Erna of GODSMACK.

Mark Tremonti of ALTER BRIDGE comments: "We are very much looking forward to performing at the Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte. We are honored to be sharing the stage with many great bands that night and it promises to be a memorable event."

"It seems the Carolinas are in need of a rock festival to call their own and we are honored to unleash the Rebellion to the great rock fans of this area," says Gary Spivack, co-executive producer of the event for Right Arm Entertainment. "With our partners at AEG we locked into an amazing outdoor venue just minutes from downtown Charlotte. We are so proud of this lineup. From GODSMACK to AVENGED SEVENFOLD to THREE DAYS GRACE to STONE SOUR....it's nonstop...one great band after another."

Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the event for AEG Live, added, "While we’re excited to be fostering such an incredible lineup of artists, it’s also imperative that we keep the rock fans in mind by delivering a tremendous value with Carolina Rebellion. The credit goes to my partners at Right Arm Entertainment and Allen Corbett, my colleague at AEG Live in the Carolinas, for keeping the vision of an affordable rock experience. To see this caliber of talent for this low of a price is truly amazing!”
