The Philly area got it’s own yearly festival back in 2015 when Dany Wimmer Presents announced the Rock Allegiance festival. It did well enough for the festival to expand to two days the following year, with Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer, Ghost and Alice In Chains among the bands performing. They’ve just announced that it’ll be back once again with some familiar faces, but also a few changes. For the first time, it’s moving across the river to Camden, NJ’s BB&T Pavilion and Wiggins Waterfront Park, and it’s back down to one day, Saturday, October 7th, and will be co-produced by Live Nation.
Rob Zombie and Five Finger Death Punch will be headlining this year, two of the headliners from 2015’s inaugural run. It’s fleshed out nicely with a handful of headline-worthy bands, incoluding Marilyn Manson, Gojira, Mastodon and Steel Panther. There are some Pennsylvania-area bands playing as well, with August Burns Red and Halestorm acting as local talent that’s broken out from the area. Other bands appearing include In This Moment, He Is Legend, Beartooth, Starset, Radkey, Bleeker, Badflower, Ded, While She Sleeps, Grage Van Fleet, Biters, Them Evils and more.
Tickets for the show will go on sale on Wednesday, May 24th, at noon, and you’ll be able to grab your tickets here.
