The new Fort Rock music festival will take place Sunday, April 14 at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida, the spring training home of the Boston Red Sox. Fort Rock is presented by 99X and marks Southwest Florida’s largest rock festival.
The initial lineup for Fort Rock includes: The Offspring, 3 Doors Down, Stone Sour, Papa Roach, Volbeat, In This Moment, Escape The Fate, Device (with David Draiman), Pop Evil, Otherwise, Mindset Evolution and many more. Bands will perform on the Main Stage and Jägermeister Second Stage.
Fort Rock is a new festival produced by Danny Wimmer Presents and AEG Live, part of the team that produces the massively successful Rock On The Range, Carolina Rebellion, and Welcome To Rockville festivals.
“AEG and I have found another market with a strong rock culture and influential rock station—99X--that is starving for a big rock festival,” says Danny Wimmer. “We couldn’t have asked for a better partner or location. We’ve been thinking long and hard about creating a festival in this area and now we’re ready to pull the trigger.”
