We’ve been raving about this year’s stacked Earthday Birthday show for several months here at RarasFarm, and this weekend we saw those expectations fully realized in a fantastic show at Central Florida Fairgrounds. Shinedown, Three Days Grace and Bush delivered killer sets but the whole day was pretty damn good.
Orlando’s rock station, 101.5 WJRR has just announced a sweet addition to this year’s already formidable Earthday Birthday lineup. The under-rated UK rockers have been doing nothing but creating hits for 20+ years and they put on a hell of a show.
The 2018 incarnation of 101.1 WJRR’s Earthday Birthday boasts a killer line-up, including three headline worthy bands in Shinedown, Seether and Three Days Grace. Aside from those big three, the entire day is highlighted by hard-driving, thunderous rock ‘n roll.
As if you didn’t know, Earthday Birthday 24, presented by WJRR, Orlando’s rock station, is this Saturday. WJRR has just released the set times for all of the acts on this year’s stacked lineup, except for the acoustic stage, which will be featuring prominent local acts like Soulswitch and Dark Summer.
During a hellacious downpour at last year’s Welcome To Rockville we had our first chat with the founders of then up-and-coming rock band Red Sun Rising. Since that stormy afternoon, their career has been skyrocketing with back-to-back number 1 singles. We caught up with the band again this year at Rockville to see how things have changed.
This year’s 101.1 WJRR Earthday Birthday was the most women-centric rock event I can remember, and the approach helped make it one of the best festivals I’ve experienced. We were treated to five female fronted bands, a key sponsor was breast health awareness non-profit organization Rock Pink, we had a chance to honor a local survivor, we saw plenty of Mel and LT, and of course, there were painted breasts celebrated everywhere.
