The Offspring headlined the very first Fort Rock and they’re returning to rock the fifth year celebration. Lead singer Dexter Holland had this to say: “We are thrilled to return to Fort Rock. Florida crowds are some of the best in the world!”

“Fort Rock festival is coming again guys! Hailing from Chicago, IL, we always look forward to heading down south to Florida to warm up, stretch our legs and hopefully still head bang our way right into, or right through your hearts! Yes indeed, we will see you soon,” said Pete Loeffler of Chevelle

“We’re stoked to be kicking off the World’s Loudest Month at Fort Rock with Alter Bridge, said Myles Kennedy. It’s gonna be epic so — don’t miss it!”

“Fort Rock turns 5 this year, and South Florida’s biggest rock ‘n’ roll getaway is only getting bigger! The hottest acts in rock and metal today get to share the bill with absolute legends like Def Leppard, Soundgarden, A Perfect Circle and The Offspring. We can’t wait to party and kick off the World’s Loudest Month by celebrating five years in South Florida at JetBlue Park this April,” said Clay Busch, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships for festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents.
