This is about the 2010 lineup. For our 6/6/11 story about the 2011 K-Rockathon lineup, click here.
Updated 6/8/10: SYRACUSE — Avenged Sevenfold and Limp Bizkit are among the top names scheduled to appear at K-Rockathon 15 later next month at the New York State Fairgrounds. The lineup was announced by Rainman on Monday evening on Galaxy’s trio of K-Rock stations (WKLL/WKRL/WKRH).
If you missed the announcement, you were likely scrambling to find the list — K-Rock Program Director Nixon says demand on the K-Rock website was so heavy on Monday evening, the site was brought to a halt.
Nixon confirms the following bands will be performing at K-Rockathon 15 on Saturday, July 31 at the New York State Fairgrounds. Each band’s name links to their respective entries on Wikipedia.
- Limp Bizkit
- Avenged Sevenfold
- Hollywood Undead
- Ed Kowalczyk from Live
- All That Remains
- A Day to Remember
- Crash Kings
- Smile Empty Soul
- New Politics
- Hail the Villain
Nixon also supplied the following new information for us on Tuesday morning:
- There will be two side-by-side stages, allowing music to run non-stop all day. While one band performs on one stage, other bands can take care of moving equipment on/off the other stage.
- In addition to the bands listed above, several local bands will open the show. K-Rock will soon announce a contest in which listeners will help to choose the local bands.
- Limited supplies of $30 early bird tickets go on sale this Saturday at select area Napa Auto Parts stores, Bodified in Oswego, and Comix Zone in North Syracuse. Once they’re gone, tickets will jump to $42, available at the same locations plus krockathon.com and through Ticketmaster.
- Gates to the concert venue will open at 11am on July 31, with music starting at 11:40am.
This will be the K-Rockathon’s second year in a row at the NYS Fairgrounds along Interstate 690 in the Syracuse suburb of Geddes.
