New Jersey-based event powerhouses SLP Concerts and GameLoud- the duo that consistently brings music fans widely-popular festival events such as the Bamboozle, Skate And Surf Festival, and Food Truck & Rock Carnival – are pleased to present the inaugural ROCK’N DERBY, taking place May 20-22, 2016 at the 35+ acre Schaghticoke Fairgrounds in Schaghticoke, NY (69 Stillwater Bridge Rd., 12154), just minutes outside of Albany, NY.
Setting this event apart from other regional multi-day rock fests, ROCK’N DERBY is conveniently placed within reasonable traveling distance from several major cities within the northeast region – positioned nearly three to four hours from New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Montreal, and more.
ROCK’N DERBY features non-stop activities for everyone to enjoy, including:
ADRENALINE-PUMPING DEMOLITION DERBIES:
This three-day camping concert experience solidifies itself as a unique destination event with the distinctive inclusion of classic Demolition Derbies – and we’re not just talking about typical car and golf cart demolitions – expect to see everything from cars designed in the themes of performing artists, to short buses, tractors, and more. In the 1970s and ’80s, demolition derbies were considered some of the most electrifying forms of entertainment on the planet – ROCK’N DERBY vows to bring back the fun of those derbies in full force! Plus, winners of the ROCK’N DERBY demolition derby competitions will be awarded over $10,000!
HIGH-ENERGY MUSIC PERFORMANCES:
The truly unprecedented line-up for ROCK’N DERBY boasts some of the biggest names in hard rock and heavy metal today. Non-stop music begins upon the opening of gates each day – multiple stages, including the Upstate Concert Hall Arena, will host performances from currently confirmed artists such as Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown, Halestorm, Megadeth, Sixx: A.M., Lamb Of God, Clutch, Anthrax, Ghost, Wolfmother, Sevendust, Dokken, Trivium, Memphis May Fire, We Came As Romans, Scott Stapp, Pop Evil, Thy Art Is Murder, Wild Throne,and Currents. Plus, expect performances at the Pre and After Parties to include tributes to your favorite acts and some very unique surprises daily.**More bands are scheduled to be announced as the event weekend nears.
ACTION PACKED GAMECHANGERWRESTLING
No GameLoud event is complete without GameChangerWrestling, featuring some of the most insane, intense, high flying and mud ridden wrestling matches all weekend long. With Battle Royales, Tag Team, and State Pro Championship matches, expect to witness history in the making. Wrestling matches will be featured all weekend in the Wrestlin’ Shack. Make sure to stop by and catch the action daily.
CAMPING IN TENTS, CARS, RVs and MORE
ROCK’N DERBY 2016 will feature areas to camp out with tents, in cars or in special pre-designated packages for camping options- making this a non-stop multi-day experience. Inside the camping area, guests will have access to electricity, showers, and running water will also be available in designated areas. Campers will have daily access to the festival site and demolition derby. Camper space will be on a first come, first serve basis, and RV parking and connections will be available, as well.
24/7 FOOD VENDORS and daily VILLAGE OF BARNS & BREWS
