Preview: Rock Allegiance Returns To Keep The Festival Party Going Into Fall 2018
Rock Allegiance 2018 is here!
Danny Wimmer Presents has been putting on the biggest festival packages for years now, but 2018 has been one of the best festivals years ever! Wimmer also doesn’t buy into the fact that festivals are just for summer time either. One of my favorites is Rock Allegiance, a one day action packed festival taking place October 6th in Camden, NJ at The BB&T Pavilion right across the river from Philadelphia, PA.
The festival is sponsored by Monster Energy, Live Nation, Philadelphia radio station WMMR 93.3, and, of course, is presented by Danny Wimmer. Rock Allegiance features three stages; one housed at the main stage of BB&T, one in backlot of the amphitheater, and one at Wiggins Waterfront Park, which offers the beautiful Philadelphia skyline as the backdrop. This year’s line up is diverse and as exciting as ever!
The 2018 line-up features Avenged Sevenfold, Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, Skillet, Bullet For My Valentine, Beartooth, Insane Clown Posse, GWAR, Of Mice & Men, Fozzy, Bad Wolves, The Fever 333, From Ashes to New, Knocked Loose, Sylar, Bad Omens, Devour the Day, Blacktop Mojo and Stone Broken. Rock Allegiance literally offers fans a full day of music pretty much back to back, as well as great food and beer available all day throughout the festival grounds.
Beyond the Music
Aside from music, Rock Allegiance also offers the opportunity to taste some amazing food and enjoy some great craft beers with your buds while listening to some of your favorite bands out there. Besides watching bands, you’ll also have the opportunity to cross paths with your favorite artists and attend special events at the F.Y.E. Music Experience. F.Y.E. gives the chance for you to take part in pop-up fan experiences such as meet & greets, acoustic performances, and Q&As. You never know what will happen in the F.Y.E. Fan Experience.
One of the coolest parts of the festival is Fxck Cancer (The Dyin’ To Live Dreams Program), The Dyin’ 2 Live Dreams Program is a wish-granting organization whose purpose is to try and enrich the lives of those fighting cancer by offering them an experience that will bring hope and inspiration to their lives. In doing this, we hope it can help give them a chance to forget, even if it’s only for a day, what they are battling. Through their network of friends, supporters, and affiliates, Fxck Cancer are able to reach out to individuals and present them with one of a kind experiences and opportunities. Dyin 2 Live Dreams can offer a source of inspiration for those undergoing difficult medical treatments and be a positive force that offers a life-changing impact not only on them, but also the family to overcome their obstacles. If you are currently fighting cancer or know of someone in the fight who could benefit from a Dyin 2 Live Dream, please submit your story and tell them why and how a Dyin 2 Live day would help. If you or anyone you know is interested in being a supporter, volunteer, or donor, please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fueling the festival experience and keeping you hydrated is the Monster Energy Experience. The experience offers concert goers free Monster energy flavor samplings, artist signings, and other exclusive opportunities on available with Monster Energy at Rock Allegiance. Make sure to stop by the Monster Energy Experience and get energized.
Food is something we all need and LOVE, especially at an all day concert. The vendors at Rock Allegiance are some of the best around, Here are some of our favorite food vendors you can look forward to:
Baby Blues BBQ offers Memphis-style long bone ribs, dry-rubbed baby backs, sliced Texas brisket, and some delicious pork slow cooked Carolina style in Guinness. All available with your choice of one of their several sauce recipes inspired by Western North Carolina, Louisiana. You can’t go wrong with some good tunes and BBQ.
Philadelphia is famous for their cheesesteak and quite possibly no one does it better than these guys. Tony Luke’s is not your typical Philadelphia cheesesteak joint; they’ve altered and redefined the Philly sandwich experience with specialty favorites like the roast pork Italian and chicken cutlet options. Their menu includes chicken cheesesteaks, seasoned french fries, hamburgers and more. So you know they offer something for everybody!
Had a long summer BBQing and your taste buds are looking for something different? Go Italian with Nico’s Pizza & More. They offer a taste of Italy serving up favorites like Calzones, Stromboli, Italian Wraps, and Stuffed Pizza!
If you’re like me and many other concert goers, one thing that might be more important than music and food is music and beer! No fear, Rock Allegiance has you covered, here is a list of some craft beers you should be quenching your thirst with this October.
The Blue Point Brewing Company began in 1998 with two friends motivated by the lack of fresh beer on Long Island and wanted to lower their bar tabs. So they built a brewery on Long Island’s South Shore in Patchogue, a tough and blue collar coastal town. Their Toasted Lager quickly became a beer New Yorkers could stand behind, taking home two World Beer Cup gold medals and earning a reputation as a beer you could enjoy every day. Be sure to come out and try these guy’s beer!
Brooklyn, NY has changed quite a bit over the past few years and with that change has come great beer. This is one of them The Brooklyn Brewery is made up of a rich collection of characters from all over the world. In Williamsburg Brooklyn, these characters are dedicated to brewing and selling great beer and enriching the communities they serve. This is one of my go-to beers and I highly recommend it – it’s refreshing and made with love, duh!
This company’s beer is as unique as their name. Ever since they started in the summer of 1995, they’ve brewed, cooked, sold, and talked everything beer. Their goal to bring people together through their beer and scratch-made spirits, and they love to hit events just like Rock Allegiance to spread their passion and love for all things beer.
