2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival Lineup Officially Announced

Posted by on April 22, 2013

While it should come as no surprise to Metal Insider readers, the lineup for the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival has been announced. Nearly a month ago, we’d suggested that Alice In Chains, Jane’s Addiction, Coheed and Cambria and Circa Survive would be playing the festival, and that’s exactly who the main stage acts are. The side stage acts are a little less known, with Walking Papers (featuring Duff McKagan and Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin), Danko Jones, Middle Class Rut, New Politics and last year’s Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands winner Chuck Shaffer Picture Show playing.

The fest is definitely a little less active rock and more alternative that it’s been in previous years, but it’s a pretty interesting change-up that will bring in separate crowds. As a summer festival, the Generation X/Lollapalooza nation will turn out to see Alice In Chains and Jane’s Addiction along. Additionally, Coheed and Cambria will bring out a contingency of prog fans, as well as some on the more emo spectrum, who will also turn out for Circa Survive, who they toured with several years ago. Check out the dates after the jump:
