Coming alongside the announcement of Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival replacing Rock on the Range in Spring of 2019 also came the announcement of a new destination music festival in North Carolina that will likely take the place of Carolina Rebellion.
Los Angeles-based Danny Wimmer Presents is one of the largest independent producers of destination rock music festivals in America and produces events including Louder Than Life, Monster Energy Aftershock, Welcome to Rockville, Bourbon & Beyond and more. They’re also the co-creators of Rock on the Range and Carolina Rebellion, two of America’s largest and most acclaimed rock festivals.
Danny Wimmer says, “When we started Rock on the Range, there was no other festival in America quite like it, but recently it became clear that we had different visions [than partners AEG] of where to take the festival next. The city of Columbus and our devoted rock fans deserve a one-of-a-kind, world-class festival, and that is exactly what Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival will bring to MAPFRE Stadium. Similarly, DWP will welcome a new festival in North Carolina this spring at a new location in the city of Rockingham that will allow us to go all night in a more European style setting. We will be announcing that festival’s name and exact location soon.”
