Anew three-day festival in North Carolina is being launched by producer Danny Wimmer Presents (DWP).

Epicenter Festival will be held at the newly-created Rockingham Festival Grounds in Richmond County, North Carolina between 10 and 12 May.

Festival producer Danny Wimmer says, “The creation of the ‘Epicenter of rock n’ roll’ in the heart of North Carolina gives us the ability to expand on the festival experience.

“We have enhanced camping amenities, night-time entertainment with no curfew, and expanded food and beverage offerings, all highlighted by a massive music line-up covering the spectrum of rock, metal and alternative rock music.”

Acts confirmed to perform at the inaugural festival include headliners Foo Fighters, Korn and Tool, as well as The Prodigy, Judas Priest and Bring Me The Horizon.

“We have a long-term arrangement with all of the property owners: The Rock [Rockingham Speedway], Richmond County, Rockingham Dragway and other local land owners,” adds DWP CEO Danny Hayes. “We’re working together to define the long-term vision for the festival area.”

Tickets are on sale, ranging from $149.50 to $225.50.
