Catch the Fever Music Festival president/CEO Mark Nuessle told Billboard.com that approximately 4,000 VIP passes have already been sold. The tickets went on sale about 90 days after last year's inaugural event, which brought in about 30,000 festivalgoers per day and featured such acts as POISON, RATT, SLAUGHTER, QUIET RIOT, L.A. GUNS, VINCE NEIL, FASTER PUSSYCAT, TWISTED SISTER and GREAT WHITE.

Nuessle declined to reveal how much money last year's festival grossed, but said the event broke even and drew fans from all 50 states and 33 different countries. "It really sparked a wildfire for this music in general," he said.

Rocklahoma 2007 was the largest rock festival of its type featuring bands from the Eighties. Attendance came from all fifty states, every province in Canada, every country in Europe. A total of thirty-two different countries from throughout the world representing every continent with the exception of Antarctica.

Located four miles north of Pryor, OK, off Highway 69, the Catch the Fever facilities include over 6,200 assigned and numbered seats, as well as general admission on the lawn for over 50,000 people. The grounds also feature over 4,000 campsites, on-site parking, bathroom facilities, a convenience store, and overnight security provided by Mayes County Sheriff's Department. Rocklahoma also has a Picture Alley that allows anyone in attendance to approach the stage during any performance and take photographs of a favorite artist at close range.
