Rock Fest is back for its 23nd year with a killer lineup including the biggest names in rock. SLIPKNOT, HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES and ALICE IN CHAINS are slated to headline the massive rock festival in Cadott, Wis. July 14-16. This year’s bill has exploded, including 65+ bands featuring FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, BREAKING BENJAMIN, MARILYN MANSON, RISE AGAINST & many more top rock bands.

CLIPKNOT will be making their debut appearance at Rock Fest in July 2016 and if their past live performances are any indication, fans are in for an eye-popping, chaotic and energy-packed show. Hailing from Des Moines, Iowa, the eight-person crew is known for their farm coverall uniforms and horror movie-style masks that bring your worst nightmares to life. Putting music behind rage, SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison once told a reporter, “All of us were so used to having the middle finger thrown at us, that when we finally threw it back, we did so with ten times the venom.” Expect pure metal punishment when the band takes the stage in Cadott.

The HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry) kick off the summer with their first U.S. festival headline show and also on the bill, their friend MARILYN MANSON, among others. The VAMPIRES make their worldwide television debut when they perform their new single “Bad As I Am” from their new deluxe album on the 58th Annual GRAMMY Awards®, Feb 15 on CBS. A super-group comprised of rock royalty and a Hollywood superstar, the VAMPIRES will hit the stage offering fans a special surprise that will be a highlight of the show.

The three-day festival also includes hardcore fan favorites like Rise Against, Bullet For My Valentine, Skillet, Nothing More, Queensryche, Scott Stapp, All That Remains, In This Moment, Sick Puppies, Like A Storm and I Prevail. New this year, Showdown Fest presents sideshows, freak shows and tattooing featuring Inkmaster Artists Big Ceeze, Brian Stephens, Clint Climmings, Erik Campbell, Halo, James Vaughn, Jim Francis and Sara Miller.

Rock Fest 2016 will be treating three-day ticket holders to an exclusive Rock Fest opener Wednesday, July 13. The ‘Bonus Bash’ will include some of the biggest names coming to the festival. Fans will not want to miss this. Gates will open to remaining fans on Thursday, July 14. Fans are able to camp on-site in one of the 7,000 campsites surrounding the concert grounds. Daily shuttles provide transport to and from nearby hotels. Rock Fest offers VIP and reserved tickets and camping for the festival, currently on sale at https://rockfest.frontgatetickets.com

Fans will have the opportunity to get Morrie’s Pit Passes for each show, getting them as close as they can to their favorite bands. Rock Fest also specializes in offering a wide variety of liquor, beer and food choices to fuel up before and during the show.

Rock Fest is an RFID festival, offering attendees the convenience to experience the weekend by going cashless. Presale tickets sold out in less than two hours for the 2016 festival. General on sale tickets, camping & Morrie’s Pit Passes are available beginning Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 8 am (CST) at https://rockfest.frontgatetickets.com
