Five Finger Death Punch will be one of the headliners of the 2014 edition of Rock Fest, scheduled for July 17th through the 20th in Cadott, Wisconsin. Also on board as headliners for the festival’s 21st year are Aerosmith and Sammy Hagar, while other confirmed acts include P.O.D., Sick Puppies, The Pretty Reckless, Redlight King, Pop Evil, Eve To Adam, Devour The Day, Cheap Trick, Live, REO Speedwagon and more.
Five Finger Death Punch are festival pros and guitarist Zoltan Bathory told us that it’s important to make audiences feel like they’re part of the show:
[“You know, the people in the audience watch a show, right? It’s almost there is no difference than they would watch a TV, because they’re watching one static little box, which is the stage, and that’s what they’re looking at. And I think you have to do better than that — to make the audience become a part of the show and have an experience.”]
- One final headliner and the rest of the lineup will be announced at a later date.
- Last year’s Rock Fest lineup was led by Korn, Kiss, Motley Crue and Three Days Grace.
- Tickets along with camping passes for Rock Fest go on sale February 22nd at the festival’s website or via phone at 800-326-FEST.
- Five Finger Death Punch recently chose its cover of the traditional folk song “House Of The Rising Sun” as the next single and video from its latest album, The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell Volume 2.
