"Nothing makes us feel more at home than playing the best festival in the U.S. with the baddest-ass lineup of the year!" Godsmack's Shannon Larkin said in a recent press release. "You better hold onto your hats America, [be]cause...we're coming at you hard and loud with the power hour Smackdown!"

The tour is scheduled to make 30 stops in North America. Besides a performance on Aug. 18 in Little Rock, AR, dates and cities have yet to be announced.

The festival, which is produced by John Reese, John Oakes and CAA in conjunction with Live Nation, will feature afternoon and evening rock performances, a concourse midway and band autograph signings.
