Producer Danny Wimmer Presents has announced that the 2020 edition of Welcome to Rockville festival will move to Daytona International Speedway in Florida. After nine years at Jacksonville’s Metropolitan Park, Welcome to Rockville will relocate to Daytona Beach for its tenth anniversary from May 8-10, 2020.
"Welcome To Rockville might be leaving Jacksonville, but I’m not leaving Jacksonville behind," said Danny Wimmer Presents founder Danny Wimmer in a release. "This is where it all began – not just for Rockville, but for me. I love my hometown, and I’m really proud of what Rockville accomplished in its nine years in Jacksonville. Unfortunately, there was no longer a space at Metropolitan Park for us to deliver the kind of festival experience that Florida’s rock fans deserve. I’m excited to have a larger site to work with that allows us the room to continue growing the festival experience. I hope all of our Jacksonville friends will join us in this next phase of Welcome To Rockville’s evolution."
