From Press Release – 

Following 2024’s record-breaking combined attendance of 330,000 fans at Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple Art & Music Festival, producer Danny Wimmer Presents (DWP) has confirmed the 2025 festival dates for Sonic Temple and Rockville.

Sonic Temple will take place May 8-11, 2025 at Historic Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio, with passes going on sale later this summer. Fans can sign up to get first access to details and passes at www.sonictemplefestival.com. In May 2024, more than 130,000 fans attended Sonic Temple, with 130 bands playing four stages on a larger-than-ever festival site, marking the event’s biggest year yet and confirming its reputation as the Pinnacle of Rock Festivals in America.

Chamie McCurry, General Manager of DWP says:

“We’re thrilled to announce that this year’s Sonic Temple was the most attended in its history, drawing over 130,000 fans to the Historic Crew Stadium—the birthplace of rock festivals in America. With 96% of attendees eager to recommend the festival to friends and family, it’s clear we’ve hit a high note,” “As we look toward Sonic Temple 2025, we’re committed to elevating the experience, further cementing its status as the Pinnacle of Rock Festivals in America.”

Welcome To Rockville is confirmed for May 15-18, 2025 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida. The 2024 festival was the biggest Rockville ever, bringing in more than 200,000 people with 150 bands on five stages, retaining its title as North America’s Largest Rock Festival. This year, Welcome To Rockville – which transforms the World Center Of Racing into the World Center Of Rock – also broke records to become the largest event ever for DWP – and 2025 promises to be even bigger and better.

DWP’s General Manager Chamie McCurry said:

“As we reflect on this year’s Welcome To Rockville, we’re thrilled to announce that not only did we break festival records for North America, but also for Danny Wimmer Presents, with an incredible attendance of over 200,000 fans across four days. This monumental achievement showcases the unwavering passion and energy of the rock community. Looking ahead, we’re excited to invite everyone to join us again at the World Center of Rock for Welcome To Rockville 2025. We’re committed to making next year’s festival even bigger and better, setting new standards for live music events and creating unforgettable experiences for our fans.”
