"This is our first year on the UPROAR Festival, and we are honored to be sharing the stage with all the bands...Trust me this is one tour you do not want to miss," says Brent Smith of Shinedown.

Godsmack’s Shannon Larkin proclaims, “Nothing makes us feel more at home than playing the best festival in the U.S. with the baddest-ass line-up of the year! You better hold on to your hats America, 'cause this fall we're coming at you hard ‘n loud with the power hour Smackdown!”

The touring music and lifestyle festival continues to grow. Despite encountering hurricanes, floods and other inclement weather in 2011, the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival packed houses, with over 324,800 in total attendance. UPROAR expands in 2012 by adding a third stage and more bands to the lineup.

Live Nation is the national tour promoter for the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival.

“We’re really excited about this year’s awesome lineup,” say tour producers John Oakes and John Reese. “It’s incredible to have so many of the biggest bands in rock together with some newer bands that are blowing up. By adding a second stage to the festival area and including even more great talent, we’re stepping things up a notch for the UPROAR fans.”

To kick off the 2012 tour, the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival will be giving away a trip for two to any show on the 2012 trek. The grand prize winner will receive roundtrip airfare for two from a U.S. city to the UPROAR show of their choice, hotel accommodations, airport transfers, $500 spending cash, and VIP treatment at the show.

The festival is produced by John Reese, John Oakes and CAA in conjunction with Live Nation.

    So I've been a hard core rocker all my life and first saw Papa Roach perform at Freakers Ball in 2010. Their performance was incredible. Jacoby has a way of connecting with the crowd to make them feel like their sharing the experience with him and the rest of the crew. I know this is a longshot, but i have to try. I, too, have had battles with addiction and it took me going back to prison four times before I finally decided to stay clean. While incarcerated, my daughter was stuck with her dad and she was mistreated in so many ways its unimaginable. When I was released, my daughter came running home to me and is now in love with Papa Roach. I would love to make her dreams come true by meeting you and the band. She believes in your music and her dream is to actually sit and talk with Jacoby. I realize this is probably a long shot; but its worth trying anyway.
