Winter may be in full effect in some places in the United States, but that just means we’re a lot closer to festival season. On Monday (Jan. 9), the people behind the “World’s Loudest Month” announced the complete lineup for the eleventh annual Rocklahoma. Def Leppard, Soundgarden, and The Offspring are just some of the big names heading to Oklahoma in late-May.
The music festival which has been dubbed “America’s Biggest Memorial Day Weekend Party” will also include performance from Taking Back Sunday, Pierce the Veil, The Pretty Reckless, Skillet, Suicidal Tendencies, Three Days Grace, Stone Sour, Seether and many more.
“Every year we try to find that delicate balance of talent at Rocklahoma, and the lineup we’ve put together for 2017 will not disappoint,” said Joe Litvag, executive producer of Rocklahoma, about the newly unveiled lineup.
“Def Leppard has been on the wish list of our most loyal fans since the festival was created back in 2007, and to couple them, one of the most influential British rock bands of the last 30+ years, with Soundgarden, one of the most respected American rock bands of our generation, is really special for us. Add to the mix some of the hottest developing talent like Pierce the Veil, The Pretty Reckless, Nothing More, and Rival Sons, and I think we’ve accomplished the goal of achieving one of the most diverse festival lineups of the year anywhere.”
Pre-sale weekend tickets and layaway packages will be available for purchase beginning Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 10 a.m. CST on the festival’s website. For those a little strapped for cash but wanting to go to Rocklahoma, the layaway option allows attendees to split the cost into four monthly payments. Following a few days of pre-dales, general, public sales will begin on Friday, Jan. 13 at 10 a.m. CST.
Rocklahoma will return to its home of the ‘Catch the Fever’ Festival Grounds in Pryor during the weekend of May 26-28. For now, the complete list of artists can be seen below.
