Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer + Volbeat Lead 2016 Revolution Rock Festival
The festivals just keep on coming and the newest addition to the ever-expanding list is the inaugural Revolution Rock Festival. Leading the way will be Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer and Volbeat as they overtake Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Conn., on Saturday, Sept. 17 later this year.
Also slated to hit the outdoor stage are Chevelle, Of Mice & Men, Anthrax, Ghost, Killswitch Engage, Sevendust, the Amity Affliction, Kyng, Nothing More, Twelve Foot Ninja, Crobot and Devour the Day. “We’ve spent the better part of two years searching for the perfect location to create a festival that is just for the rabid rock fans of New England,” said Joe Litvag, Executive Producer of Revolution Rock Festival for AEG Live. “After seeing the incredible property and amenities offered at Foxwoods Resort Casino, I knew we had finally found a home."
Further defining the choice, Litvag continued, "It’s really easy to get to from just about anywhere in the region, and the fans can make a whole weekend out of it with a top-notch resort, golf, spa, shopping, great restaurants and, of course, the gaming. Our hope is that Revolution Rock Festival will become an institution for rock fans of the Northeast and will be thought of as ‘New England’s rock festival’ for years to come!”
Pre-sale tickets will come at a special price and will be available starting Wednesday, June 8 at 10AM ET through Friday, June 10 at 9:59AM ET. For a password that will unlock the pre-sale tickets, fans will have to scour the Revolution Rock Festival social media pages.
