Now that the COVID vaccine is being accepted by even the most betinfoiled of Americans, rock festivals are finally coming back. Now, AEG Presents have announced the line-up for this year’s Rocklahoma Festival, and holy crap, it’s one hell of a collection of bands.
Rocklahoma 2021 goes down Friday, September 3rd, to Sunday, September 5th, at the Pryor Creek Music Festival Grounds in Pryor, Oklahoma. At the forefront of the Rocklahoma line-up are Slipknot, Limp Bizkit, and Rob Zombie, who have already been booked for summer festivals from Michigan to Germany in the coming year. But those bands are just the tip of the iceberg, with acts like Halestorm, Anthrax, Falling In Reverse and several filling out this stacked fest.
“Cannot wait until we play Labor Day Weekend in Pryor, Oklahoma,” says Slipknot’s Shawn “Clown” Crahan. “Our first time at a festival is always very special. We all know that this will be one of those days. See you all soon. Stay (sic).”
