fort rock 2018 line upSome people seem to think that rock is DEAD! Well, from the bill of FORT ROCK 2018, not only is it not fucking dead, but it is thriving just fine. No need to rise from any ashes here. These bands are LOUD and PROUD and haven’t gone anywhere that they need to rise back from. The TWO DAY event sponsored by Monster Energy Drinks takes place on Saturday and Sunday, April 28th and 29th (doors open at noon) and is being held at Markham Park in Sunrise.

Hosted by Sirius XM Radio’s Jose Mangin, it is an incredible bill of newer, younger bands, as well as a great collection of 90’s-2010’s rock titans. All to culminate on Sunday night with the legendary Ozzy Osbourne. The bill contains the following bands :

Saturday Line-Up:

Godsmack, Five Finger Death Punch, Shinedown

Halestorm, Bullet for My Valentine, Underoath

Trivium, Hatebreed, Texas Hippie Coalition

Power Trip, ’68, Bad Wolves

Sunday Line-Up:

Ozzy Osbourne

Breaking Benjamin, Stone Sour, Stone Temple Pilots

Killswitch Engage, Hollywood Undead, Sevendust

Popevil, Red Sun Rising, Avatar

Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown, Toothgrinder

As you can see, this is a “monster” and we are lucky to have this collection of bands coming down to South Florida. Even luckier we are to have the Prince of Darkness aka Ozzy Osbourne performing as well. Get your tickets now on the Fort Rock website right here!


There are few bands that I wasn’t all too familiar with, like Toothgrinder and Texas Hippie Coalition. I went to YouTube and checked out their videos and I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw and heard. You never know how it can go with the lower tier bands at any concert, but as you can see, there are more HEADLINE QUALITY BANDS than there are early filler acts. I know that I am gonna be there. This is a two day show that you are not going to want to miss!
