CAROLINA REBELLION WRAPS YEAR TWO WITH OVER 30,000 IN ATTENDANCE AND SOLD OUT VIP AND CAMPING PACKAGES



Over 30,000 fans were in attendance--with VIP and camping packages sold out--at the second annual Carolina Rebellion, held Saturday, May 5 at the legendary Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, NC. The festival implemented various upgrades and venue improvements in 2012 to provide a premier concert experience at the multi-stage rock festival.

Fans were treated to a major reunion in the hard rock world when Korn was joined onstage by former guitarist Brian “Head” Welch for the band’s classic song “Blind.” This marked Head’s first time playing with the band in over seven years and was a highlight of the festival.

According to Loudwire.com (May 6, 2012), Korn frontman Jonathan Davis brought Welch out with the following introduction: “For a long ass time, this spot right here has been very lonely – very very lonely. I want to bring out one of my truest and oldest and most beloved friends to come out and have some fun with this. You guys ready? My boyyyyyyy!” A video clip of the performance can be seen here:

featured performances from headliners Shinedown, along with Korn, Evanescence, Staind, Five Finger Death Punch, Slash, Chevelle, Volbeat, Halestorm, P.O.D., Adelitas Way and more.

The festival is proud to be sponsored by Monster Energy, Jägermeister, Hangover Recovery, and f.y.e. - for your entertainment. Carolina Rebellion is produced by Right Arm Entertainment and AEG Live, the same team that produces the highly successful Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH. Rockingham Speedway is located at 2152 N US HWY 1, Rockingham, NC, less than two hours from Charlotte, Raleigh/Durham, Columbia and Greensboro.
