Dates And Venues Set For World’s Loudest Month 2017; Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma and More Festivals


Destination festivals are suddenly big business in America, with gatherings such as Monster Energy Fort Rock, Rocklahoma, Rock On The Range, and Northern Invasion drawing hundreds of thousands of fans over the past few years. While we’ve still a ways to go before the festivals here carry the same weight as the great European open air fests — Wacken, Hellfest, Download, etc — we’re well on our way, and it’s great to see the festival industry here booming.

Dates and venues for a slew of 2017 metal festivals in the U.S. have now been announced, and you can check those out below. Lineups are expected to be revealed next month. For more info visit worldsloudestmonth.com.
