Independent festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents, the City Of Jacksonville and SMG are happy to announce that in order to accommodate the increased demand for Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville tickets, this year’s festival will be expanding into a portion of the EverBank Field grounds.

To facilitate festival attendees’ movement between Metropolitan Park and EverBank Field, Gator Bowl Blvd. will be closed at the boundary of Lot TT from 6:00 PM Friday, April 24 until 2:00 AM Monday, April 27.

The new scenario will expand the festival’s capacity 25%, from 40,000 to 50,000, over the two-day event. The lineup for the fifth annual Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville, held April 25 & 26 at Jacksonville, Florida's scenic Metropolitan Park along the St. Johns River, includes Slipknot, Korn, Godsmack, Marilyn Manson, Slayer, Ministry, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Halestorm, The Pretty Reckless, Of Mice & Men and many more.

Says Danny Wimmer Presents CEO Danny Hayes, “This year’s Rockville will be the largest yet, with a 25% increase in sales from last year’s record attendance. We are so appreciative of Mayor Brown’s support and leadership in expanding this festival into EverBank Field. I believe this is the first step in unlocking Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville’s full potential.”

“Jacksonville is looking forward to another great Welcome To Rockville,” said Mayor Brown. “By expanding its footprint in Downtown Jacksonville, fans will have an even bigger and better experience. Rockville brings thousands Downtown every year and helps solidify our reputation as a premier destination for top-quality entertainment events.”

Visit Jacksonville reported that the 2014 Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville generated nearly $10.3 million in visitor spending, showing the growing strength of the event in driving tourism to the city. According to research funded by Visit Jacksonville and conducted by a research team from the University of North Florida (UNF), an estimated 25,500 of the 40,000 concert attendees were from locations outside of Duval County – which represents 70 percent of total attendees at the sold-out weekend rock festival.

The expansion into EverBank Field also led to a new partnership with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Says DWP’s head of marketing Clay Busch, “We are thrilled to have the Jags participating in Rockville as we continue to expand the festival’s offerings into sports and food.” SMG Jacksonville manages EverBank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, on behalf of the City of Jacksonville. Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville’s relationship with SMG and the Jacksonville Jaguars includes hosting various onsite activities during the festival, as well as the Ultimate Rock-N-Jock Experience contest. The contest runs through April 22. Visit http://www.jaguars.com/rockville/ to enter.

The lucky winner of the Ultimate Rock-N-Jock Experience and three friends will receive:

  • Backstage Tour at Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville
  • Four VIP tickets to the festival
  • Meet & Greet with the band HATEBREED
  • Jaguars jersey with HATEBREED’s name on the back, autographed by the band
  • VIP experience at the Jaguars’ Draft Party at EverBank Field on Thursday, April 30
  • Locker Room Tour (date / time TBD)
  • Four Club Level tickets to a Jaguars home game of their choice (excluding London) and four on-field pregame passes
  • Jaguars football autographed by Denard Robinson
In addition, Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville will feature:
  • Jaguars Quarterback Challenge football toss game
  • Jaguars Photo booth
  • Jacksonville Jaguars ROAR cheerleaders on site for a portion of each day
General Admission and VIP tickets for Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville are on sale now at www.WelcomeToRockvilleFestival.com. A limited number of tickets are also available at select MetroPCS and Firehouse Subs locations with no service fees.
