Monster Energy Fort Rock 2016, South Florida’s Biggest Rock Festival, is returning to JetBlue Park in Fort Myers for two big days on April 30 and May 1.
With three straight years of top rock acts performing to sold-out crowds, Fort Rock went all in and doubled down. For 2016, producers Danny Wimmer Presents and AEG Live have expanded the festival to two days — and they’re bringing in even more of the best bands to meet the rabid demand of the fans. This year’s stellar groups include horror filmmaker and shock rocker Rob Zombie. Also on the bill are Five Finger Death Punch and 3 Doors Down, both veterans of The World’s Loudest Month festival series. Additionally, fans will enjoy sets by Megadeth and Anthrax, members of “The Big Four of Thrash Metal.”

Saturday — April 30
