It was originally scheduled for last year but, well, we all know what happened then... Due to the pandemic, it was rescheduled for summer 2021. The change in schedule also meant that Disturbed would not be able to make it... BUT, we now have a new headliner!

Rob Zombie will now be rocking Grand Rapids in July 2021!

Two days of rock music will take over Belknap Park July 16th-17th, 2021.

Friday, July 16 will bring Korn, Chevelle, Avatar, Joyous Wolf, Gemini Syndrome and more.

Saturday, July 17 features Rob Zombie, Staind, Skillet, Like A Storm and more.
