"This is an exciting time at DWP and in the music festival business," says Danny Wimmer. "Over the next two years, we will be making a series of major steps that are designed to push the U.S. rock festival market forward. This is the first of those announcements."
"I believe that the festival market is at a major inflection point," he continues. "The proliferation of music festivals has been good for competition and caused promoters to aggressively pursue expanded entertainment and enhanced experiences. At festivals like Bourbon & Beyond and Louder Than Life, for example, we have been able, and will continue, to rise to the challenge and push the boundaries in food programs, wine and spirits offerings, art installations and all of the other things that fans have come to expect. This growth is essential for rock festivals to hold their own against our cousins in other genres. We are about to embark on the next generation of rock festivals this spring."
"I am so proud of what we accomplished with Rock On The Range, and we couldn't have done it without our partnership with AEG," adds Wimmer. "When we started Rock On The Range, there was no other festival in America quite like it, but recently it became clear that we had different visions of where to take the festival next. The city of Columbus and our devoted rock fans deserve a one-of-a-kind, world-class festival, and that is exactly what Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival will bring to MAPFRE Stadium. Similarly, DWP will welcome a new festival in North Carolina this spring at a new location in the city of Rockingham that will allow us to go all night in a more European style setting. We will be announcing that festival's name and exact location soon. We are also looking forward to bringing back Chicago Open Airbetter than ever and continuing to build on the record setting pace of Welcome To Rockville."
