Returning to the scenic Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, Florida, the 2016 Welcome to Rockville promises to host another memorable event centered around hard rock and heavy metal heavyweights. This year’s lineup will be featured over the course of Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1, where more than 45 bands will leave their impact on the fairgrounds.

The first day of Welcome to Rockville 2016 will feature headlining performances from Shinedown, 3 Doors Down and Disturbed, the latter of whom will be returning after their four year hiatus. The course of the opening day will include anticipated appearances from Sixx:A.M., Collective Soul, Pop Evil, Bullet For My Valentine, Hellyeah and Asking Alexandria, among others.

Day two should prove to be just as formidable, as the evening will include main sets from Rob Zombie, ZZ Top and Five Finger Death Punch. The remainder of the second part of Welcome to Rockville 2016 will be comprised of performances from such heavyweights as Megadeth, Lamb of God, Sevendust, Ghost, Anthrax and A Day To Remember, among others.

The 2016 edition of Welcome to Rockville holds a particular significance to festival producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents, who offers: “People thought I was crazy when I launched a festival in Jacksonville. This is my home town, so I ignored everyone, and we came out of the gate with a sold out event. To go from 10,000 tickets that first year to over 50,000 in 2015, and making this Florida’s biggest rock experience, I couldn’t be more proud to be a native of North Florida and to showcase my home town nationally. Welcome To Rockville has become one of rock’s most recognizable festivals, and it’s only going to get better.”

The complete band lineup for Welcome to Rockville 2016 can be found below. Discounted Early Bird tickets for Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville are available now through Thursday, December 17 at
