Rockstar Energy Drink’s DISRUPT Festival is quickly gaining traction as America’s #1 touring festival. Boasting headliners like The Used, Thrice, and Circa Survive, the tour will make its way around the continental United States throughout the summer. Since DISRUPT Festival is a totally new beast, we’ve compiled a list of things to know before you go.
Stay hydrated: Fewer things in the summer are worse than heat exhaustion or heat stroke. The best thing you can do for yourself when spending the day outside is to drink plenty of water. It’ll keep you cool and hydrated, so you can spend your time having fun watching your favorite bands, rather than in the medical tent.
Wear comfy shoes: Have you ever worn a pair of shoes that don’t quite fit to an all-day festival? It’s not fun (Trust me. I had to deal with the blisters long after the festival was over). Throw on a pair of comfy shoes and have a ball rocking your heart out.
Plan your day: Festivals can be chaotic, but they don’t have to be! DISRUPT Festival has been great about posting set times for each date on both their social media and website! That not only makes it easy to check when your favorite band is playing, but also great to plan your meals around.
Bring sunscreen: It’s going to be hot, and it’s (probably) going to be sunny. Bring sunscreen to apply throughout the day to minimize the pain of a sunburn.
Check the festival’s bag policy: Don’t just check out your venue’s bag policy, cross-check it with the festival’s! There might be some major differences that you need to make note of. Make sure you’re only bringing what’s allowed, so you don’t have to waste time taking things back to your car (or packing them in the first place).
ABOUT DISRUPT FESTIVAL
Fans will be immersed into a full-day interactive experience where they will not only be able to see some of their favorite bands live, but will also be exposed to the latest in lifestyle brands and pop-up activations. Unlike most other festivals, there will only be one band performing at a time, avoiding conflicting set times and allowing fans to experience the full lineup in one rock-filled day.
The event will start on an outdoor stage on festival grounds with surrounding activations before shifting into an amphitheater setting around sundown allowing for larger stage productions as well as comfortable seating options for fans. Concert-goers will get the best of both worlds with a festival environment during the day as well as a high-production amphitheater concert at night from some of the most exciting live performers in the rock scene today.
Fans who bring any empty 16 ounce can of Rockstar Energy Drink to recycle at the main gate will have the opportunity to skip the line and be entered to win a signed festival guitar and exclusive meet & greet with festival headliners.
