Welcome To Rockville 2018 Just Did the Unthinkable

Florida’s Loudest Music Festival Just Kicked It Up A Notch

Over the past decade, hard rock fans in the Southeast have watched the steady growth and transformation of Jacksonville’s premiere rock event, Welcome To Rockville.  This year, producer Danny Wimmer takes the festival to new heights, adding a third furious day of rock, and for the first time ever, adding an onsite camping option.


This year’s lineup is as stacked and diverse as I can remember.  Headline acts include Foo Fighters, Ozzy Osbourne, Avenged Sevenfold, Billy Idol, FFDP, Halestorm, Stone Temple Pilots, Stone Sour, Queens of the Stone Age and so many more killer acts.

The talent on this year’s stages is better EVERY DAY than any day the last few years.  Simply put – this is a legendary event in the making.  When you read the small print on the concert poster, the hits keep coming: Pop Evil, Red Sun Rising, Texas Hippie Coalition, Black Foxxes and so much more.   The full line-up is provided below.

“Since Welcome To Rockville’s inception seven years ago, I have been building towards this day: To bring not just the biggest rock festival in Jacksonville (or even Florida), but the biggest rock lineup in the United States to my hometown,” says festival creator and producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents. “This is a triumph for me, my company and the city that I love.”
