Premier festival producer Danny Wimmer Presents kicks off its 2023 season with DWP’s longest-running annual festival, Welcome To Rockville. The festival brought together 150,000 fans in 2022 and the 12th edition of the event will be held for its third installment at the hallowed grounds of “The World Center of Rock,” Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The 2023 event takes place from May 18th – 21st and features a massive lineup featuring headliners TOOL, SLIPKNOT, AVENGED SEVENFOLD AND PANTERA PLUS DEFTONES, ROB ZOMBIE, GODSMACK, EVANESCENCE, INCUBUS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, ALICE COOPER, THE MARS VOLTA, PUSCIFER, I PREVAIL, CHEVELLE, COHEED & CAMBRIA, HARDY and TRIVIUM. Jose “Metal Ambassador” Mangin will host the event with on-stage appearances and fan meet and greets.

We are so excited to be bringing this fantastic lineup to Welcome To Rockville. Our fans have been wanting Pantera and along with one of Avenged Sevenfold’s first live shows in five years, crowd favorite Slipknot, AND one of the greatest rock bands of all time, Tool, we are delivering a jam-packed weekend to the ‘The World Center of Rock.’ Can’t wait to see everyone in May!
