Straight out of the 90’s and into your present 2020’s. That’s right, Pantera, closely associated with the likes of Guns n Canes, pardon me, Guns N’ Roses, and a plethora of nostalgic bands from the same era are back. Next year will mark their headlining a jam-packed head banging rocking and rolling concert titled, Welcome to Rockville.

As per Blabbermouth, the bands Pantera, Tool, Slipknot (monsters who wear masks) and AVENGED SEVENFOLD will headline the 2023 edition of the Welcome To Rockville festival.

The event is set to take place May 18-21 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida – site of many a pro wrestling and speed racing events. Also scheduled to appear are DEFTONES, ROB ZOMBIE, GODSMACK, EVANESCENCE, INCUBUS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, ALICE COOPER, CHEVELLE and COHEED & CAMBRIA. There are more.
