The first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival launches August 17 in Minneapolis, MN and will visit arenas and amphitheatres across North America before wrapping October 4 in Madison, WI. The late summer trek features a stellar active rock lineup including multi-platinum headliner Disturbed, who will release their new album Asylum in August. Multi-platinum co-headliner Avenged Sevenfold will release their new CD Nightmare July 27, 2010. The main stage will also feature Stone Sour, whose new CD Audio Secrecy is set for release this summer, and Halestorm. The potent rock lineup for the touring music and lifestyle jaunt also features performances from JÃ¤germeister Second Stage headliners Hellyeah, as well as Airbourne, Hail The Villain, New Medicine and the local JÃ¤germeister-sponsored opener in each city. Airbourne will not be performing on the Canadian dates. The festival is being produced by John Reese, John Oakes and CAA in conjunction with Live Nation.
All fans who buy tickets to the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival will have the opportunity to sign up to receive a free digital CD compilation. The compilation includes: Disturbedâ€™s “Stricken,â€ Avenged Sevenfoldâ€™s “A Little Piece of Heaven,” Stone Sourâ€™s “Come What(ever) May” live, Halestormâ€™s “Familiar Taste of Poison,” Hellyeahâ€™s “Cowboy Way,” Airbourneâ€™s “Blonde, Bad And Beautiful,” Hail The Villainâ€™s “Take Back The Fear” and New Medicineâ€™s “Laid.”
As previously announced, the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival has formed an alliance with Child Find of America, a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and resolution of child abduction. UPROAR is working with mGive mobile giving to create a text-to-donate campaign to benefit Child Find of America that will launch July 1 and will continue throughout the year. Text â€œFINDâ€ to 50555 to donate $5 to Child Find of America.
â€œWe saw the massive text-to-donate campaign that the Red Cross used to help in fundraising for the earthquake in Haiti,â€ says tour producer John Reese. â€œOur thought was to bring that same technology to the touring festival world. Through mGive, we are able to have people text in their donations. Big or small, we feel that every dollar we can direct toward Child Find of America, the closer we are to helping them achieve their mission of bringing these missing children home safe and sound.â€
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival will feature a full afternoon and night of activities, including a concourse midway filled with vendors and activities and a daily wrestling tournament featuring the Detroit-based Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance. The Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance UPROAR lineup will feature eight of the finest, fastest rising wrestlers in the world who will put their skills to the ultimate test during the BCWA UPROAR Invitational. The 36-event tournament will encompass 245 matches over seven weeks throughout North America. The athlete that perseveres over injuries and adversity will be named King of the Tournament. For more information on the Blue Collar Wrestling Alliance, go to www.bcwaonline.com.
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival carnival midway will feature games of chance including Basketball, Balloon Toss, Spill The Milk, Break A Plate, Bank A Ball, Beer Can Alley, Tubs Of Fun and Hi Striker.
