Carolina Rebellion was a hard rock and heavy metal music festival that took place annually in North Carolina. It was produced by AEG Live and Danny Wimmer Presents. The festival featured music, food and vendors.[clarification needed] The inaugural festival took place at the Metrolina Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina. The second year of the festival it was relocated to Rockingham Speedway in Rockingham, North Carolina. The festival took place at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina in 2013 and the promoters aimed to make that the permanent venue. In 2013, Carolina Rebellion expanded to two days and to three days in 2016. Due to a split between DWP and AEG Live, a new festival has been created, scheduled to start in Rockingham, NC in 2019.[1] On November 28, 2018, a new festival named Epicenter was announced (not to be confused with the festival of the same name in southern California).[2]
