The best in rock festivals on land meet the kings of rock at sea as Danny Wimmer Presents and Sixthman are proud to announce a new partnership in 2022, combining the signature world class talent and unrivaled immersive festival experiences both companies have pioneered in their combined decades in business.

“We are excited to venture into our first international event in 2022. Joining forces with Sixthman to create a concert at sea, plus a day long festival on an exclusive island, we know this will be a vacation unlike anything our fans have ever experienced,” says Danny Wimmer, founder DWP.

The brand new rock festival vacation will take 2500+ passionate music fans on an immersive 5-day cruise from Miami to the resort-like private island of Harvest Caye, Belize, where the ship will dock a full day and night for a rock festival on the beach. From intimate performances while sailing across the ocean, to raging barefoot on the sand with headlining acts on a private island, this will be hands down the ultimate vacation of every rocker’s dreams. In addition to the island festival, the carefully curated lineup (to be announced soon) will perform multiple sets across numerous stages on the ship and get interactive with guests during the days at sea.

Danny Wimmer Presents Regretfully Announces Cancellation Of Spring Festivals

The Press Release:
Festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents has released the following update about their 2020 music festivals:

There are no pre-existing guidelines for what festivals should be doing during this unprecedented time. Like the rest of the music industry, we continue to assess new information and make the best-educated decisions possible. We know you have been anxious for updates from us and we are at a point where we can answer many of your questions about how each of our festivals may be affected by COVID-19.

We are crushed to say that Epicenter, Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple are being canceled due to the governmental restrictions on mass gatherings. We respect these directives and recognize they are in the best interest of the greater good, as well as the health and safety of our fans, musicians, partners, and staff. Before accepting this fate, we worked really hard to try to reschedule the festivals. Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts, venue availabilities and a number of other factors out of our control made postponing impossible. Make no mistake, each of these festivals will return in May 2021 bigger and stronger than ever!

Danny Wimmer Presents Announces Epicenter Festival For 2019

epicenter festival 2019

The Press Release:
Epicenter Festival–a new 3-day destination music experience from premier independent U.S. music festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents–will debut in the heart of the Mid-Atlantic region, at the newly created Rockingham Festival Grounds in Richmond County, North Carolina on Friday, May 10, Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12, 2019.

Epicenter Festival replaces “Carolina Rebellion”, which was held in North Carolina from 2011 – 2018. With a move to the new venue, Epicenter Festival offers an enhanced festival experience. The new festival grounds will be developed in coordination with Rockingham Dragway and Rockingham Speedway, with even more music, extensive camping options, and no curfew.

Festival producer Danny Wimmer explains, “We are very proud of what Carolina Rebellion represented, so we understand that our decision to replace it was confusing to people. It took more time than we had hoped to make the final decision and then work out all of the details. Ultimately, we felt that there was so much more that we could accomplish in the right circumstances. The creation of the ‘Epicenter of rock n’ roll’ in the heart of North Carolina gives us the ability to expand on the festival experience with enhanced camping amenities, nighttime entertainment with no curfew, and expanded food and beverage offerings, all highlighted by a massive music lineup covering the spectrum of rock, metal and alternative rock music. There’s always a next level to strive for – and after 8 great years of Carolina Rebellion, Epicenter is that next level.”
