2017 Guide to Rock + Metal Festivals

Who’s ready for some rock and metal festivals in 2017? The festival experience is unlike anything else where rockers can get together with a group of their closest friends, sometimes traveling half way around the world to see their favorite bands play together. People make new friends, linking new chains in the armor that bind this community together so well. All over the world and even on cruise ships, there seems to be more and more rock and metal festivals each year, forcing fans to make tough decisions when selecting which ones to attend.

To help everyone out, we’ve assembled a comprehensive list of some of the biggest 2017 rock and metal festivals taking place in North America. Below you’ll see a chronological listing of these festivals and cruises along with where they’re taking place and who some of the major acts are.

Remember to keep checking back for lineup and additional tour announcements as they come in. And of course, let us know which ones you’ll be attending!
