The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival returns August 26 through October 15 to conquer North America with a massive active rock lineup. Leading the charge is multi-platinum headliner Avenged Sevenfold, making their triumphant return after co-headlining the 2010 debut Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival.
Three Days Grace, Seether and Bullet For My Valentine, along with Escape The Fate will also be featured on this year’s main stage. The touring music and lifestyle festival--which Revolver called “one of the most electric tours of the year” in 2010--also includes the Best Buy Music Gear Stage headliners Sevendust, as well as Black Tide, Art Of Dying and The Black Cloud Collective.
"When we started hearing from our fans they wanted to see us back on Uproar this year, we thought, last year was a blast so let's do it again. The fans are crazy and the bands kick ass,” says Avenged Sevenfold's frontman M. Shadows. “We're spending the first half of summer playing some big European festivals so we're going to be ready to get back home and play America's top rock festival."
“We're thrilled to have Avenged Sevenfold back as headliners,” adds tour producers John Reese and John Oakes. “Their epic stage show helped elevate Uproar 2010 far beyond the standard outdoor festival. The fans wanted more, and we listened."
The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival will entertain fans with a full afternoon and evening of great rock bands and will also include a concourse midway featuring band autograph signings, vendors and other activities. The festival is being produced by John Reese, John Oakes and CAA in conjunction with Live Nation.

The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival is proud to continue their alliance with Child Find of America, a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and resolution of child abduction. In addition, the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival has joined forces with the Road 2 Recovery Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing AMA licensed professional motocross and supercross riders with financial assistance if they sustain career-ending injuries. The organization also provides motivational, emotional and spiritual support to these individuals and their families.
A portion of the proceeds of each Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival ticket sold will benefit Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation. More information on Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation can be found at www.RockstarUPROAR.com/causes.
“We’re excited to work with the Road 2 Recovery Foundation, since so many of the UPROAR crew are fans of Motocross or just love to ride,” says Mike Kelso, Marketing Director for Rockstar Energy Drink.
