Welcome To Rockville, the largest Rock Festival in America, returns for 2022 with its largest lineup ever, over the weekend of 19-22 May 2022.
The previously announced headliners Guns N’ Roses, KISS and KORN will be joined by Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, The Smashing Pumpkins, Breaking Benjamin, Megadeth, Jane’s Addiction, Papa Roach, Rise Against, Halestorm, In This Moment, Seether, Bush and many more. This is one of the last chances to see KISS.
“Welcome To Rockville,” says Danny Wimmer Presents founder Danny Wimmer says. “This past November was truly incredible. Our new home, Daytona International Speedway, welcomed us with open arms, and our fans showed up in record numbers and experienced an unforgettable weekend. We knew we needed to up the ante in 2022 so we went and booked the biggest lineup that has ever been booked for an American rock festival. We are so excited to welcome the biggest names in rock for one epic weekend this May.”
Foo Fighters were due to play, but following the death of Taylor Hawkins, they are taking a break from touring. Parkway Drive were also due to play, but having cancelled their US 2022 tour, this unfortunately will not happen. Hatebreed and The Black Dahlia Murder are thus unable to play also. Recent new additions to the bill are Underoath, RED, John Harvie, and Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown.
Halestorm say the event will be life changing. “OMG…is this real life? So you’re saying that Halestorm is sharing the stage with Jane’s Addiction and The Smashing Pumpkins,” Lzzy Hale said. “Also, not to mention Guns N’ Roses and KISS…all on the same festival! Yep! You heard it here straight from the banshee’s mouth! And we will be bringing our A-game as always. You do not want to miss this lineup! To say that Rockville is going to be legendary is an understatement…this will be a life-changing show! The countdown begins. See you all in Daytona in May.”
“We’ve said it before, and we say it now,” Brent Smith says. “Shinedown has only one BOSS. It just happens to be everybody in the audience. We are honoured to be a part of North America’s BIGGEST Rock N’ Roll festival…Welcome To Rockville 2022.”
“We are grateful to be part of Rockville 2022,” Zolton Bathory from Five Finger Death Punch says. “Tens of tens of tens of thousands of fans and an incredible lineup of legendary bands? Twist my arm. We’ll see you all there.”
As well as established rockers, Mammoth WVH, Dirty Honey, Poppy and Plush feature on the bill.
