MONSTER ENERGY’S CAROLINA REBELLION BREAKS RECORDS WITH OVER 90K
It was another record-setting weekend for the World’s Loudest Month, as Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion reached new heights with more than 90,000 in attendance as the festival grew to three days (May 6, 7 & 8) in 2016. With over 60 bands on four stages at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, NC — and 12 hours of televised performances and backstage interviews on AXS TV — Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion was a full weekend of nonstop rock for fans in both the Mid-Atlantic and around the country.
The 6th Annual Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion marked the launch of the legendary Scorpions’ U.S. tour — part of their 50th Anniversary World Tour — with Motörhead’s Mikkey Dee filling in on drums. The festival also featured performances from Rob Zombie, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, Deftones, A Day To Remember, 3 Doors Down, Bring Me The Horizon, Cypress Hill, Pennywise, Lamb Of God, plus Rock & Roll Hall Of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd and Alice Cooper, thrash pioneers Megadeth and Anthrax, and many more.
