The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival is produced by John Reese, John Oakes and CAA in conjunction with Live Nation and will entertain fans with a full afternoon and evening of great rock bands. The festival will also include a concourse midway featuring band autograph signings, vendors and other activities.
Main stage artist Neil Sanderson of Three Days Grace notes, “In the slightest chance that the Mayan calendar is right, and the world is ending in 2012, then this could technically be the last big rock tour in the history of human existence.”
A portion of the proceeds of each Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival ticket sold will benefit Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation. More information on Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation can be found at www.RockstarUPROAR.com/causes.
