The colorful rock festival Welcome to Rockville just released its 2024 lineup and it's EPIC. Keeping in mind that a lot of sane folks who LOVE music are probably un-interested in giving Florida ANY tourism money at present because current political leadership is whack, Rockville's 2024 lineup could cause some of us to at least consider re-considering making a May trek to Daytona as a 4-day exception.

What is Welcome to Rockville?

If you are unfamiliar with Welcome to Rockville, according to good ole Wikipedia,

Welcome to Rockville is a four-day hard rock and heavy metal music festival. The festival is held annually at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Welcome to Rockville started as a one-day event in May of 2011 and then over the years continued to expand to include 4 days, multiple stages and the opportunity to see a plethora of your faves over the course of the four day weekend. Like most music festivals, Welcome to Rockville was on temporary hiatus during COVID, but ramped back up in 2022 with legendary acts like Kiss and Guns and Roses as headliners-- although two of the four days were rained out that year.
