Welcome to Rockville might be a few months away, but tickets are selling fast, with several tiers on or close to the last price level.
In addition to festival passes (which can be purchased at welcometorockville.com), finding a place to stay is another must for those traveling from out of town.
The lineup of more than 90 heavy metal acts includes artists like Slipknot, Evanescence, Alice Cooper, Deftones, Rob Zombie, Godsmack, Incubus, Queens of the Stone Age, The Mars Volta and Puscifer, among others.
The festival is an all-ages event, with several food and entertainment features in addition to the music. Organizers encourage parents to bring ear protection for their children.
