Hollywood Vampires Headlining Rock Fest 2016 in Cadott, WI

 

 Slipknot, Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry) and Alice in Chains Headlining Rock Fest 2016

CADOTT, Wis. (February 5, 2016) – Rock Fest is back for its 23nd year with a killer lineup including the biggest names in rock. SLIPKNOT, HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES and ALICE IN CHAINS are slated to headline the massive rock festival in Cadott, Wis. July 14-16. This year’s bill has exploded, including 65+ bands featuring Five Finger Death Punch, Breaking Benjamin, Marilyn Manson, Rise Against & many more top rock bands.

Slipknot will be making their debut appearance at Rock Fest in July 2016 and if their past live performances are any indication, fans are in for an eye-popping, chaotic and energy-packed show. Hailing from Des Moines, Iowa, the eight-person crew is known for their farm coverall uniforms and horror movie-style masks that bring your worst nightmares to life. Putting music behind rage, Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison once told a reporter, “All of us were so used to having the middle finger thrown at us, that when we finally threw it back, we did so with ten times the venom.” Expect pure metal punishment when the band takes the stage in Cadott.

The Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry) kick off the summer with their first U.S. festival headline show and also on the bill, their friend Marilyn Manson, among others. The Vampires make their worldwide television debut when they perform their new single “Bad As I Am” from their new deluxe album on the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards®, Feb 15 on CBS. A super-group comprised of rock royalty and a Hollywood superstar, the Vampires will hit the stage offering fans a special surprise that will be a highlight of the show.

The word “super-group” gets thrown around a lot these days, but truly, it doesn’t get much super-er than Hollywood Vampires’ lineup….” – YAHOO Music

In 1969 on the Sunset Strip at a club called the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Hollywood Vampires were born in the upstairs bar. It was a gathering place for the rock stars living in or passing through L.A. “To join the club, one simply had to out drink all of the members,” says Alice Cooper, a founding member of the original Vampires. Alice and good friend Johnny Depp got together and decided the spirit of the Hollywood Vampires should live again (minus the drinking). Alice and Johnny were joined by Joe Perry, who is an old friend of both of them, and the recording began: a tribute to the original Hollywood Vampires. An environment was born for great artists to hang, laugh and play together.

Alice in Chains is one of the most successful and influential American rock bands of all time and are currently gearing up for the release of a much-anticipated new album. Back in September of 2009, Alice in Chains shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Rock Chart with “Check My Brain.” The track became the 12th Top 10 hit for the iconic rock band. While it’s always gratifying to top the charts, this achievement was particularly special because it was the band’s first new single and album in more than 10 years. Talk about staying power. Over the course of their remarkable career, the band has garnered multiple Grammy nominations, sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and amassed a diehard, international fanbase.

Back by popular demand, Five Finger Death Punch. Undoubtedly one of the most relevant and successful active rock bands globally, Five Finger Death Punch dominated 2013 with the releases The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell – Volume 1 and Volume 2. Both volumes debuted on the U.S. Billboard album chart at #2 and in the top ten mainstream charts all across the world. Then in 2015, Five Finger Death Punch released their highly anticipated sixth full-length album, Got Your Six. In January, the single, “Wash It All Away,” earned the band their fourth No. 1 Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart.

The three-day festival also includes hardcore fan favorites like Rise Against, Bullet For My Valentine, Skillet, Nothing More, Queensryche, Scott Stapp, All That Remains, In This Moment, Sick Puppies, Like A Storm and I Prevail. New this year, Showdown Fest presents sideshows, freak shows and tattooing featuring Inkmaster Artists Big Ceeze, Brian Stephens, Clint Climmings, Erik Campbell, Halo, James Vaughn, Jim Francis and Sara Miller.

Rock Fest 2016 will be treating three-day ticket holders to an exclusive Rock Fest opener Wednesday, July 13. The ‘Bonus Bash’ will include some of the biggest names coming to the festival. Fans will not want to miss this. Gates will open to remaining fans on Thursday, July 14. Fans are able to camp on-site in one of the 7,000 campsites surrounding the concert grounds. Daily shuttles provide transport to and from nearby hotels. Rock Fest offers VIP and reserved tickets and camping for the festival, currently on sale at https://rockfest.frontgatetickets.com

Fans will have the opportunity to get Morrie’s Pit Passes for each show, getting them as close as they can to their favorite bands. Rock Fest also specializes in offering a wide variety of liquor, beer and food choices to fuel up before and during the show.

Rock Fest is an RFID festival, offering attendees the convenience to experience the weekend by going cashless.

Presale tickets sold out in less than two hours for the 2016 festival. General on sale tickets, camping & Morrie’s Pit Passes are available beginning Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 8 am (CST) at https://rockfest.frontgatetickets.com

Alice Cooper; The Hollywood VampiresAlice Cooper and his Hollywood Vampires bandmates will bring some edge to the Grammys next week with a tribute to late Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister and the premiere of a hard-rocking, brand new song, “As Bad as I Am.” “We started this band as a means to toast our ‘dead drunk friends’ at the Rainbow, all the ghosts in the bar, and now I guess Lemmy is involved in that, too,” Alice Cooper tells Rolling Stone. The group – which includes Johnny Depp, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, among others – are set to perform both during the awards ceremony, which will air live on CBS on February 15th.
