STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, CREED, GODSMACK, THREE DOORS DOWN, WOLFMOTHER, and HINDER top the long list of bands combining forces with DC3 Global to hijack the world's biggest, baddest biker event for five full nights of undeniable rock 'n' roll bedlam — Monday, August 9 through Friday, August 13 at the inaugural Rock N' Rev Festival, part of the legendary Sturgis Rally's 70th anniversary celebration in Sturgis, South Dakota.
With an unrivaled lineup of 20 bands over five nights and spectacular fireworks displays each night in the nation's largest outdoor amphitheater at the 600-acre Glencoe CampResort, the Rock N' Rev Festival promises to be the hands-down largest party ever thrown at the world's largest motorcycle event, which annually draws over a half million patrons. World-famous showman Jim Rose and his side circus are set to emcee the five-day event and give attendees a show they will never forget.
GODSMACK drummer Shannon Larkin, a motorcycle enthusiast, told The Pulse of Radio why he's enjoyed playing at Sturgis in the past with GODSMACK. "Well, the main thing about Sturgis is, it's a beautiful area to ride motorcycles," he said. "You know, it's like therapy when you go on your bike and you just ride like that. And so, you know, the Sturgis thing, I didn't go to party and do all the bars and bikers and boobies and fighting or anything like that (laughs). You know, nothing really exciting except for getting on the bike and riding. And man, it's almost unparalleled."
EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, THE DARLING STILETTOS, POP EVIL, SKILLET and SWAYBACK are just some of the other bands making massive music at this colossal biker bash. Stay tuned for major announcements of many more bands being added in the weeks ahead.
