Welcome to Rockville Announces Stacked Lineup for Daytona Beach
Iconic rock music mega-festival Welcome to Rockville has announced its full 2020 lineup for the tenth installment of the heaviest metal show set to rock Florida. The three-day music festival will take place at Daytona International Speedway, home to NASCAR’s legendary Daytona 500, starting on Friday, May 8, running through Sunday, May 10.
Longtime heavy metal rockers Metallica will be making their debut at Rockville, headlining two days that include two different sets from the San Francisco based Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. The ten-year milestone brings one of the greatest lineups to grace the Rockville stage. The festival will feature some of the biggest names in rock, including Godsmack, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Disturbed, The Offspring, Staind, Deftones and more.
The three-day festival moved from its home in Jacksonville in 2019 to Daytona Beach this year. Festival promoter Danny Wimmer Presents continue their relentless pursuits to deliver the very best and biggest rock acts including the addition of Metallica, the largest touring act in the world. Over the past several years, Danny Wimmer Presents continues to push the boundaries beyond imagination bringing the very best bands, forging a cult-like following of fans, selling out the festival year after year since it first took place in 2011. The Welcome to Rockville music festival continues to cast a stellar lineup that brings over 50 top music artists including well-recognized headline acts to a dedicated fan base. Welcome to Rockville reached its highest attendance figures in 2019 with over 99,000 fans in attendance over the three-day weekend.
Fans will also be thrilled to learn that punk-rock legends Social Distortion will be performing at Rockville when they join the headliners on Friday night. Also on the bill for the extended weekend festival are Dropkick Murphys, Alter Bridge, Anthrax, The Pretty Reckless and more.
It seems the artists are just as excited as the fans for what’s to come, including two book-ending nights of Metallica. Lars Ulrich, drummer for Metallica, on playing two shows of a three night festival. “We’ve never done this experience before, so for us and the band and our whole organization, it’s a super exciting thing.” Ulrich goes on to say, “It will be great to hang out in the same town, and it will be great to go to some of the shows, feel the energy of the festival on that Saturday.” For those who plan to attend Rockville, there are few shows that rival a Metallica show, the production elements alone makes this a must see show.
