Top Dozen – Welcome to Rockville Bands

The Best Bands at Welcome To Rockville 2018

This year’s three-day lineup featured about fifty bands spread across the three Metropolitan Park stages. At events like this, it’s impossible to see every band, but I did manage to catch about 25 full sets and another dozen partial sets. For the most part, the music was great, but here is the best of the best…

Welcome To Rockville Set Times Announced

Welcome To Rockville Set Times

They’re here! Set times for the hard rock music event of the year, and as you will see below, there will be some tough decisions.

Make sure you Like RARAsFarm’s Facebook Page and Follow us on Twitter for continued Welcome To Rockville festival coverage.


First, I suggest you check out Philip Snyder’s preview on Six Can’t Miss Welcome To Rockville Bands HERE

The headliners: Korn, Marilyn Manson, Slipknot and Godsmack will have the grounds all to themselves, but earlier in the day it’s a different situation. There are a few challenging decisions right off of the bat, but that’s bound to happen with such an incredible plethora of hard rocking acts in one place at one time.

A few examples:

  • Saturday 2:00 – Hollywood Undead or Fozzy? We’re headed to the Monster Energy Main Stage for Hollywood Undead then hustling over for the last few Fozzy songs.
  • Saturday 5:00 – Halestorm or Testament? Check out the first few songs from Testament over at the Reverbnation Stage, then as much of Halestorm as you can.
  • Sunday 3:00 – Butcher Babies or In This moment? Start at Reverbnation Stage for Butcher Babies and catch their full set, then bust it over for most of In This Moment’s set at The Monster Energy Stage.
  • Sunday 4:00 – Breaking Benjamin or Hatebreed – Tough one, but strictly based on logistics, we’ll be hitting the Benjamins at the Jack Daniels Stage and then racing over for a few songs from Hatebreed.
  • Sunday 6:00 – Papa Roach and All That Remains – Well, we’ve never seen All That Remains, and want to. Papa Roach is excellent live so we’ll hustle back to the Monster Energy Stage and catch the encore, Jacoby Shaddix will probably find you in the far reaches of the crowd anyway.

That’s the beauty of this event, so many bands in one place, with four stages pounding out the rock ‘n roll. Good luck with your decisions, and make sure you Follow and Like Us to keep up to date.

Rock On!
