Avenged Sevenfold, Judas Priest, Def Leppard + Alice Cooper to Headline 2015 Rock USA Festival
Avenged Sevenfold, Judas Priest, Def Leppard and Alice Cooper have been announced as the headliners for this summer’s Rock USA in Oshkosh, Wis. Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Queensryche, Pop Evil, Warrant and more are also slated to play during the four-day festival taking place July 15-18.
Cooper is the headliner for the first night of the festival on July 15 with Warrant, Queensryche and more set to play, as well. Judas Priest will close things out the next day, with Dokken, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more performing earlier in the day. Avenged Sevenfold are headlining Friday, July 17, with Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Pop Evil and Death Glare hitting the stage before them. The festival wraps up on the 18th with Def Leppard shutting things down, after Styx, Tesla and two other groups play.
This isn't the first time Avenged Sevenfold has headlined Rock USA. The guys topped the bill in 2013, sharing headlining duties with Bret Michaels, Van Halen and Godsmack. Last year Korn, Slayer, Rob Zombie and Five Finger Death Punch were the main acts at the four-day event.
Starting March 9 at 8AM local time, fans can buy tickets to the four-day event for $69. That kick-off sale lasts 48 hours ending March 11, when ticket prices will be raised to $79. For the procrastinators among us, final day-of ticket prices for the four-day event will be $159, more than double the original price. Head to the festival's official site to learn more and to buy tickets starting March 9. Camping passes are sold separately.
