Rock the Red Event Is “Still On”

Just days after we reported that ‘Rock the Red’ was cancelled, event organizers say the event is still on.

According to the Rock the Red Facebook page, the event is expected to be held at the Hunter Farms in Weddington, North Carolina which is just outside of Charlotte, on Wednesday, September the 5th.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., and U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., are listed as expected speakers during the event, and organizers said on the site that some local and conservative bands are still set to perform.

Tickets for the event are just $5, and free for children under the age of 12 and all current and past military personnel.

You can find more information and purchase tickets for the event at the event’s website.

‘Rock the Red’ Cancelled

A Conservative festival with hopes to provide the “alternative voice” during a week in which thousands of Democrats would invade the city of Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention, has been cancelled according to an event organizer.

‘Rock the Red’ was planned for the afternoon and evening of September 5th at the 11,000-seat Bojangles’ Coliseum. Many important politicians from the Carolinas were scheduled to speak, as well as others that included Maricopa county Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In addition to Conservative political speakers, many popular conservative bands and musicians were scheduled to play including the Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt, and Lee Brice.

A spokesman from the CRVA (Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority) said that ‘Rock the Red’ signed a contract and was aware of the financial obligations, but have since failed to meet them.

The attorney representing ‘Rock the Red’ said that Ticketmaster did not display the event as a concert, instead calling it a ‘Republican’ event instead.

‘Rock the Red’ also claims that CRVA did not properly market the event. CRVA said that the event was ‘a straight facility rental with few ‘deliverables’.”
