Buy Some Earplugs, World’s Loudest Month Scheduled for 2013

For those about to rock, we salute you and the “World’s Loudest Month” taking place this May. What is the World’s Loudest Month, you ask? A collection of festivals featuring over 100 artists and and 200,000 rocks fans.

Five different festivals. Five consecutive weekends. Five chances to rock your face off. It kicks off in the last week of April because May just can’t contain the World’s Loudest Month (actually May only has four weekends).

Welcome To Rockville: April 27 in Jacksonville , FL
Carolina Rebellion: May 4 & 5 in Charlotte, NC
Rockfest: May 11 in Kansas City, MO
Rock On The Range: May 17, 18 & 19 in Columbus, OH
Rocklahoma: May 24, 25 & 26 in Pryor, OK

New this year — Welcome to Rockville will increase capacity to meet demand. Carolina Rebellion expands to two days. Expect Rockfest to sell out for the ninth time in a row. Rock on the Range adds an extra day and Rocklahoma will just keep on being the baddest ass party on Memorial Day Weekend.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the editor-in-chief's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
