May has been dubbed the "World's Loudest Month" for good reason, it represents the kick off to the 2014 rock festival season from the east coast to the mid-west, all jam packed into an exciting month. The six festivals that make up the WLM feature over 125 artists playing for more than a quarter of a million rock music fans.
The brain child of the partnership between AEG Live and Danny Wimmer Presents, the group of festivals was created with the goal to become the launch pad for fans across the country. "I've been saying all year that I keep hearing rock is 'dead', yet record numbers attend our shows every year. Our festivals are for music fans who buck trends and remain true to the music they like." says Danny Wimmer, Co-Executive Producer.
The World's Loudest Month kick-off weekend actually starts at the end of April and continues to the end of May. The cities and dates are as follows:
Monster Energy's Welcome To Rockville: April 26th and 27th in Jacksonville, FL
Fort Rock: April 26th in Fort Myers, FL
Carolina Rebellion: May 3rd and 4th in Charlotte, NC
