Monster Energy Rock Allegiance Fest Set For Philly

Rob Zombie, Korn, Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Bring Me The Horizon, and In This Moment are among the decibel-packed act bands heading to Philadelphia in October for the Monster Rock Allegiance Festival.  Tickets go on sale this week.

Boasting a lineup that also includes Atreyu, Hollywood Undead, Saint Asonia, Pop Evil, Nothing More, Butcher Babies and others, the autumn feast of metal scheduled for Oct. 10 will be the first-ever live music event at PPL Stadium, the soccer-centric venue that’s home to the Philadelphia Union.

Produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, Global Spectrum at PPL Park and Live Nation, Monster Energy Rock Alliance will spread 12 hours of music across three stages.  The official aftershow featuring Steel Panther begins right after Zombie’s headlining set.

Keeping you nourished during the all that rock will be the festival’s selection of craft beer and gourmet man food.  Victory, Troegs, Star Hill, Fordham & Dominion, Evolution and New Belgium are among the boutique brewers providing suds for thirsty festivalgoers while food offerings include Braz-BQ, Chickie and Pete’s, The Cow and the Curd, Dos Hermanos, Dump N Roll, Jim’s Steaks, M.A.T.T.’s Food Truck, Mama’s Meatballs, Seoufull Philly and Sum Pig, with more to be announced.

“Monster Energy Rock Allegiance will bring this audience a truly unique experience that is about their favorite music and so much more,” said Live Nation Philadelphia President Geoff Gordon.  “For those fans and artists performing, it is incredibly exciting to know that they are a part of [the] first ever live music event at PPL Park and Soccer Stadium.”
