Epicenter, the popular North Carolina rock ‘n’ roll music festival operated by Danny Wimmer Presents has been cancelled for 2020 due to the global Covid-19 crisis. The event was slated to return to Concord, North Carolina after last year’s event was hosted in Rockingham. Previously known as Carolina Rebellion, the festival was scheduled to feature two nights of Metallica, Deftones, Cypress Hill and many more.

The festival informed fans and media through a press release:

“We are crushed to say that Epicenter is being canceled due to the governmental restrictions on mass gatherings.  We respect these directives and recognize they are in the best interest of the greater good, as well as the health and safety of our fans, musicians, partners, and staff.  Before accepting this fate, we worked really hard to try to reschedule the festival.  Unfortunately, scheduling conflicts, venue availabilities and a number of other factors out of our control made postponing impossible.  Make no mistake, each of these festivals will return in May 2021 bigger and stronger than ever.”

The festival will offer full refunds with the option to apply your 2020 festival pass for towards next year or exchange your pass for another one of their 2020 festivals like Louder Than Life (Louisville, Kentucky), Bourbon & Beyond (Louisville, Kentucky), and Aftershock (Sacramento, California). More details will be emailed to pass holders within 72 hours.
