Rock the South is an outdoor festival in that celebrates life, food and music while memorializing heroes and honoring historic achievements with some of the best bands and musicians around.

The two-day event begins on Friday, June 20, 2014 and continues the next day on Saturday, June 21 at Heritage Park in Cullman.

Friday’s featured artists are ‘Little Big Town,’ Charlie Daniels, Easton Corbin, The Welch Brothers, The Springs, D.J. Hish and Weston Burt.

Saturday kicks off with Lynryd Skynyrd, Phil Robertson (of Duck Dynasty), Billy Currington, Colt Ford, Drake White and Big Fire, Shelbie, Sara Evans and another appearance by D.J. Hish.

Rock the South began after the devastating tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011 when the south was ‘rocked’ to the core emotionally and financially, with loss of lives, homes and property.

The event celebrates the South’s recovery and the strong spirit of Southerners everywhere.

On the one-year anniversary of the tornado outbreak, over 15,000 people gathered for the first Rock the South event with country music stars, Dierks Bentley and Kellie Pickler.

By the second year, the number of fans rose to 35,000 in attendance, raising more than $50,000 for local charities.

General admission one-day passes for Rock the South are $39 and two-day passes are a bargain at just $49, with Platinum and VIP tickets available for $99 and $199, respectively.

This year’s stage is even larger than before with huge LED walls on either side, to make sure everyone can see what is going on at all times.

More than 25 food and beverage vendors will be on-site serving up some of the best barbecue and burgers in the South, along with beer, liquor, colas and fresh lemonade. No beverage or food carry-ins will be allowed.

There is a no-reentry policy and chairs are not allowed on the premises unless provided by the event in the VIP and Platinum sections. Blankets are allowed for seating.

All shows will be performed rain or shine.

Children are welcome, but parental discretion is recommended due to alcohol consumption on the premises.

Children age 5 and under are free, age 6 and up are full price. Only cash and credit cards will be accepted at the door.
