“I'm not sure where to begin. Last year was a difficult year for all industries, especially live events, where our job is to promote large crowds. In a statement, co-producer and president of Stage Left Entertainment Nick Abate said, "Being able to announce festivals and lineups for this year has never felt so amazing." “We are able to come together as a group and make Rebel Rock a huge success!”

The Monster Energy BMX team will perform live at Rebel Rock Fest, and Jose Mangin's Taco Metal Party will perform an opening night concert complete with taco trucks, Riazul tequila, and specialty margarita cocktails.

The event will be held for the first time this year, after being postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19. Patrons of the Rebel Rock Fest will be allowed to wear masks when purchasing food, beverages, merchandise, and tickets, as well as when using the restrooms. Hand sanitizer stations will be set up all over the festival grounds. Closer to the event's date, the festival will have any additional safety steps.

"It's exciting to be able to put live shows and festivals back to the fans after such a long wait." In a statement, Stage Left Entertainment/Rebel Rock co-producer Brandon Hinson said, "We're proud to bring a solid lineup to market with Rebel Rock and look forward to building the festival experience that fans love so much."

There are single-day, two-day, three-day, and four-day passes available. At RebelRockFest.com, VIP packages are also available. Tickets purchased for the 2020 event can be transferred to the 2021 event. Check out Rebel Rock's MGK announcement below, as well as the rest of the lineup.
