Last year saw the inaugural Monster Energy Rock Allegiance festival come to the Philadelphia suburb of Chester, PA at the Talen Energy Stadium. Things must have gone pretty well, as today, they announced that the festival is returning this September. This year’s festival has expanded to two days, September 17th and 18th. And as could be expected with an expanded festival, the lineup is bigger and arguably better this year as well, with a nice combination of bands that will appeal to both fans of active rock and metal. Avenged Sevenfold and Alice In Chains will be headlining the festival, but metal bands including Killswitch Engage, The Amity Affliction, letlive., Death Angel, Twelve Foot Ninja and Ghost, among others. Here’s the full lineup, with more to be added later:
Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, Slayer, The Offspring, Breaking Benjamin, Volbeat, Chevelle, The Cult, The Pretty Reckless, Pierce The Veil, Of Mice & Men, Ghost, Anthrax, Killswitch Engage, Chevy Metal, Baroness, Hellyeah, Sevendust, Motionless In White, Buckcherry, Trivium, Avatar, Max & Iggor Cavalera Return To Roots, Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy, Sick Puppies, The Amity Affliction, letlive., Neck Deep, Skindred, KYNG, Young Guns, Crobot, Devour The Day, Twelve Foot Ninja, Dinosaur Pile Up, Death Angel and Hundredth.
