North Carolina’s Epicenter music festival will return in 2020 with performances from Lynyrd Skynyrd, Disturbed, Deftones, Godsmack and more. The new additions to the lineup will join Metallica who previously announced they will perform two sets at Epicenter, as well as all of producer Danny Wimmer Presents’ 2020 festivals.

Epicenter 2020 will take place at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C. from May 1-3 with performances from Volbeat, Staind, Papa Roach, David Lee Roth, Gojira and Chevelle. Cypress Hill, Rancid, Royal Blood, Anthrax, Dropkick Murphys, I Prevail and Alter Bridge will also take the stage at the festival’s new location.

The Danny Wimmer Presents festival debuted earlier this year at Rockingham Festival Grounds in Rockingham, N.C.

“We’re pleased to announce that Epicenter is moving to Charlotte Motor Speedway’s Rock City Campgrounds,” said Danny Wimmer Presents CEO Danny Hayes in a release. “The new location offers plenty of nearby lodging, increased camping, and convenient travel options. The number one request we received from the fans was to move the festival to Charlotte…and we listened.”

Camping at Epicenter will begin on April 30 with campgrounds open until May 4. All tent and RV campers will have access to showers, portable restrooms, food and drink vendors, charging stations, information, and medical services.

VIP, 3-day passes and more are available now. Check out a full list of artists below.
