Carolina Rebellion 2014 day one brings legendary performers to the South

See also

The fourth annual Carolina Rebellion hit the Charlotte Motor Speedway Rock City on Saturday, May 3 to the delight and fanfare of thousand of Rebels (festival-goers). This year they were assured that, unlike the previous year’s unfortunate turn of events, this year the weather would be much more favorable and considerably drier. Carolina Rebellion has been heralded as the biggest rock festival in the South and has gained notoriety over the years for bringing big name acts to the Carolinas that might otherwise have skipped us in their usual tour circuit. Since 2011, Rebellion has been undergoing various changes and adaptation in order to get it right. Earlier years were critiqued for poor venue choice, excessive heat, and last year was harshly criticized for what many perceived as poor preparation for the rain on the second day of festivities which led to the cancellation of roughly a quarter to half of the performances scheduled for that day. This year both the weather and spirits were bright and ready for action. The first day was scheduled to include performances by Trivium, Adelitas Way, Volbeat, Black Label Society, Twelve Foot Ninja, Fozzy, Rob Zombie and Avenged Sevenfold. Was the weather more forgiving this year?
