It is the largest travelling music festival in the United States and is the longest-running touring music festival in North America. It is very well known within the rock and metal community because these genres are usually the type of bands that would perform at the festival.

entire tour. Meeting these people is an amazing experience. You get to make new friends and probably discover some new surroundings.
