Avenged Sevenfold headlines Uproar Fest second consecutive year
The second annual Uproar Festival will hit the road this summer with Avenged Sevenfold at the helm again and accompanied by Three Days Grace, Seether, Bullet For My Valentine, and Escape the Fate.
The first leg of the Rockstar Energy Drink-sponsored music and lifestyle festival kicks off Aug. 26 in Camden, NJ, and works its way south along the East Coast before heading westward. The hard rock extravaganza is scheduled to touch down in 16 North American cities so far, including a Sept. 14 stop in Toronto. The confirmed itinerary is at right, and more shows will be announced in the coming weeks.
Tickets for some shows go on sale Friday (6/17). A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold will benefit Child Find of America and the Road 2 Recovery Foundation.
A second stage, sponsored by Best Buy, will feature Sevendust, Black Tide, Art of Dying and The Black Cloud Collective.
Last year's inaugural Uproar Festival stopped by 35 major markets and featured Disturbed, Stone Sour an Halestorm on the main stage, along with Avenged Sevenfold.
