California rockers GREAT WHITE have been confirmed for for the inaugural Rock Gone Wild festival on August 20-23, 2009 in Algona, Iowa. Also scheduled to appear are DANGEROUS TOYS, JUNKYARD, HELIX, RHINO BUCKET and SAIGON KICK. Rock Gone Wild marks the only festival appearance for SAIGON KICK — featuring Matt Kramer and Phil Varone — in 2009.

Rock Gone Wild will feature more than 50 bands on two stages over four days of hard rock and heavy metal. The festival promises four decades of rock n' roll debauchery at its finest!

For the first time, Rock Gone Wild fans are able to purchase tickets at all three price levels: platinum, VIP and general admission. The platinum package offers the most luxurious festival experience in America. Platinum ticket holders are allowed exclusive access to the Sinners Lounge. The Sinners Lounge features buffet style lunch, dinner and nightly snacks daily; liquor and beer, soft drinks and water - all to enjoy in an air conditioned tent. The Sinners Lounge is the perfect nightclub setting for all rock fans! There are fewer than 250 platinum seats remaining. Platinum ticket holders sit in the first ten rows. Once the platinum seats are sold out, no more will be added. The package also comes with a commemorative lanyard, T-shirt, poster and more. VIP ticket holders also get special Rock Gone Wild privileges. These ticket holders will sit in rows 11-30, enjoy buffet style lunch, dinner and late night snacks daily, plus beer, soft drinks and water. VIP fans will enjoy their food and drink in air-conditioned tents. Only 900 VIP tickets remain at this time. Once they are sold out, no more will be added.

Fans that like to party in big groups or go their own way will love general admission seating. This ticket level allows fans re-entry access the entire run of the festival. Camping is also available for additional purchase no matter the ticket level selected. To purchase tickets, please visit

Rock Gone Wild will take place at the Freedom Park festival grounds, located at 2507- 160th Avenue in Algona, Iowa. While Algona is a rural community, the area is close to many hotels and both the Des Moines and Minneapolis airports are easily accessible.
