“Along with AEG Live, Right Arm is beyond excited to unleash the Carolina Rebellion lineup,” says Gary Spivack, co-executive producerof the festival for Right Arm Entertainment. “Like last year, it was our goal to make sure the 2012 lineup was stacked from top to bottom.

Based on 2011 attendee feedback, Carolina Rebellion organizers have implemented various upgrades and vast venue improvements to provide a premier concert experience at the multi-stage rock festival. The new centrally-located site provides plenty of space to expand, including more food and beverage stands, merchandise stands, restrooms and parking, and also offers more traffic routes to and from the event.

“When our fans speak, we listen,” commented Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival for AEG Live. “We personally responded to every person who sent us comments, and because of that important feedback, our motto this year is ‘Let’s double it!’ Double the number of entrance points into the festival, double the number of concession stands, double the number of merchandise stands, and double the number of locations for free water…We’re taking the steps to make Carolina Rebellion an upgraded experience for everyone.”

In addition, all ticket prices will include parking to ensure quicker access to the parking areas, and earlier entry into the parking areas and will be allowed, along with earlier door times, to better alleviate the traffic and lines. The inclusion of the new Camping Packages will encourage fans to arrive on Friday starting at 10am and stay until Noon on Sunday, thereby relieving traffic congestion on Saturday.

Further improvements to amenities include: a larger box office area for will call pickup, shade locations in public areas and the Hangover Recovery VIP Lounge area inside the festival grounds to allow those with VIP Lounge tickets to have a special place to enjoy the event.

“Our sponsors mean as much to us as our fans do,” added Litvag. “And without the support of music-centric companies like Monster Energy, who present our two main stages at Rebellion, we couldn’t put a festival of this size and scope on for the people.”

Carolina Rebellion is also proud to be sponsored by Jägermeister, Hangover Recovery, and f.y.e. – for your entertainment (which will be on site selling CDs and DVDs and will host band autograph signings throughout the festival day). Carolina Rebellion is produced by Right Arm Entertainment and AEG Live, the same team that produces the highly successful Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH.

Rockingham Speedway is located at 2152 N US HWY 1, Rockingham, NC, less than two hours from Charlotte, Raleigh/Durham, Columbia and Greensboro.

When a band goes a year without playing in their hometown, they may start to wonder if their core audience has dissipated. Such was not the case on this special night (July 14th) as MeTalkPretty returned to their home New York City for a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom. Unfortunately, the band wasn’t headlining. Instead, they were opening for Civil Twilight, Neon Trees and Paper Tongues (not a bad lineup!)

Fronted by the sexy yet mysterious Julia Preotu, MeTalkPretty rocked Bowery as if it were Madison Square Garden despite the fact that doors had opened merely minutes before the band took the stage. Julia has a huge stage presence, and an edgy, unique voice to go along with it. You’d never guess just from hearing her sing that she has quite the endearing romanian accent. Between songs, she engaged the audience in some chit chat, talking about the band’s new We Are Strangers EP and opening up to speak about her late mother.

To the unfamiliar ear, the name MeTalkPretty might sound like a cliche emo pop punk band. But it is not! MeTalkPretty’s an energetic alternative rock band with stadium filling potential. Check them out next opening for Filter at the Bowery Ballroom on Saturday August 21st. You can get your tickets here
