AEG Live is bringing another new music festival to audiences in the northeast.
This fall, AEG Live will debut the new music festival, the Revolution Rock Festival. The festival, fueled by Monster Energy, will be held Saturday, September 17th outdoors at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT. The lineup for the inaugural festival includes: Avenged Sevenfold, Slayer, Volbeat, Chevelle, Of Mice & Men, Anthrax, Ghost, Killswitch Engage, Sevendust, The Amity Affliction, KYNG, Nothing More, Twelve Foot Ninja, Crobot, and Devour The Day. Joe Litvag is Executive Producer of the Revolution Rock Festival for AEG Live. He discussed the work and planning put in to make the festival a reality in a recent interview, and the hopes for the festival’s future. “We’ve spent the better part of two years searching for the perfect location to create a festival that is just for the rabid rock fans of New England,” he said. “After seeing the incredible property and amenities offered at Foxwoods Resort Casino, I knew we had finally found a home. It’s really easy to get to from just about anywhere in the region, and the fans can make a whole weekend out of it with a top-notch resort, golf, spa, shopping, great restaurants, and of course the gaming. Our hope is that Revolution Rock Festival will become an institution for rock fans of the Northeast and will be thought of as ‘New England’s rock festival’ for years to come!”
Foxwoods President and CEO Felix Rappaport echoed Litvag’s sentiment in a statement regarding the new partnership between AEG Live and Foxwoods Resort Casino. “We are thrilled to be partnering with entertainment powerhouse AEG Live to bring the Revolution Rock Festival to Mashantucket and Foxwoods Resort Casino,” he said. “Foxwoods has been at the forefront of entertainment since we opened in 1992, and events like this festival will continue to make Foxwoods the market leader.”
