TOOL, LINKIN PARK and ALICE IN CHAINS are among the confirmed bands for the Epicenter festival, set to take place August 22 at the Fairplex in Pomona, California. Also scheduled to appear are Australian metal act WOLFMOTHER and Tom Morello's latest project, STREET SWEEPER SOCIAL CLUB, along with HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, ATREYU and SONNY as well as hip-hop artists ATMOSPHERE and AESOP ROCK.

Epicenter will be produced by Right Arm Entertainment, which specializes in radio station festivals and has worked with KROQ-FM (106.7) on its Inland Invasion events.

"To introduce a new rock festival in Southern California, you have to dream big," says Right Arm Entertainment's Gary Spivack. "We're dedicated to making this the best rock festival of the summer."
