Carolina Rebellion Returns to Charlotte in May with Soundgarden, Alice in Chains

The Carolina Rebellion festival returns for its third year, and the 2013 incarnation will feature Soundgarden and Alice in Chains.

The event will take place May 4-5 at the Rock City Campgrounds at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, which is located in Concord, North Carolina. This year marks the first time the festival has been held over two days, and in addition to the headliners will also feature tons of other rock acts including Deftones, Rise Against, Papa Roach, Bush, 3 Doors Down, Buckcherry, Limp Bizkit and Halestorm.

The bands will perform on one of three stages that will be set up at the festival: the Monster Energy “Carolina Stage,” the Monster Energy “Rebellion Stage and the Jagermeister Stage. It’s pretty easy to see who the sponsors of the festival are, and the event is presented by AEG Live, known for putting on other huge festivals around the country including Coachella, Stagecoach, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Rock on the Range and many more.

“Holding Carolina Rebellion at Charlotte Motor Speedway gives us the ability to create an even better experience for our fans,” said Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the festival, in a statement. “We have more space to expand, easier access in and out, upgraded tent and RV camping opportunities, and lots of participating hotels to cater to our crowd.”

Tickets for the event go on sale Friday, February 8, and two-day passes are $99. Single day passes also are available for $59.50, and a special military pass includes a four-ticket bundle (for both days) for $198, and the purchaser must be active military. Access to the VIP Lounge at the festival is a $100 per person upgrade. The lounge includes shaded seating areas, a cash bar, food available for purchase and private restrooms.

Camping for the festival starts at $125 per space and includes a Friday Night Campground Party. RV spaces are available both with and without hookups.
