Produced by C3 Presents and AC Entertainment, the massive footprint of the festival site–known to millions as the home of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival–will be transformed into a rock and roll playground with the all-star line-up appearing on three stages with 12 hours of music daily, camping and a variety of activities tailored specifically to concert-goers. This marks the first-ever event, beyond Bonnaroo, to utilize the 700-plus acre farm. On site adventures include Paranormal Cirque (an R-rated crazy yet fun fusion between circus, theatre, and cabaret in perfect harmony with the evolution of a show that brings you back to when we dream…and when we had nightmares and fantasies), the first annual EXIT 111 car show, Red Bull motocross demonstrations and a mega sports bar airing full sports coverage throughout the weekend, with more activities announced soon.

The Rock Winners Of The Grammy Awards 2018

They say that its the most important night in music and if you’re a fan of Rap, R&B and lots of Pop stuff this is very possibly true. Most of the fans of the Rock and the Metal side of the fence don’t really lend too much attention to it since many of our category awards get presented before the show even airs on television. Though I cannot confirm since I don’t watch the broadcast, I’m fairly certain that the Metal performers don’t even get to play for the audience live anymore. With most of the categories that do hold some interest to our readers, I’m sharing them below for your awareness.

Best Rock Performance:
You Want It Darker – Leonard Cohen – WINNER
The Promise – Chris Cornell
Run – Foo Fighters
No Good – Kaleo
Go To War – Nothing More

Best Metal Performance:
Invisible Enemy – August Burns Red
Black Hoodie – Body Count
Forever – Code Orange
Sultan’s Curse – Mastodon – WINNER
Clockworks – Meshuggah
