The new southern tradition

Rock the South – June 20th-21st, 2014

Heritage Park – Cullman, AL

Outdoor festivals celebrate many things. Some memorialize heroes, some honor historic achievements, and some are even dedicated to things as simple as food, music and life. What if I told you “Rock the South” represents all of these things?

On April 27, 2011 the south was “rocked” by an historic tornado outbreak that took many precious lives and caused catastrophic damage to many of the things we hold near and dear. This day taught us a lot about ourselves. It helped us all realize what was most important. It also brought out the best in all of us. “Rock the South” is a festival celebrating our recovery, our commitment to one another, and our Southern way of life.

On the one-year anniversary of this historic day over 15,000 people celebrated the first annual “Rock the South” in Cullman, Alabama with country stars Dierks Bentley and Kellie Pickler. RTS 2013 saw explosive growth with over 35,000 in attendance over two days and $50,000 to local charities.

Rock the South 2014 will feature some of country musics top artists including: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Little Big Town, Billy Currington, Charlie Daniels, Colt Ford and many more! Tickets for 2014 go on sale on December 13th at 10AM!
