Some of rock’s biggest names and rising stars plugged in to play the inaugural Rockstar Energy Disrupt Festival at Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The Disrupt Festival featured two stages, and no bands overlapped. Having two stages gave fans an unforgettable music experience without having to choose between their favorite bands. Hyro the Hero kicked off the concert with a lively set that had members jumping from every piece of equipment that would give them big air. Singer/song writer Juliet Simms was up next with a sultry performance that turned up the heat under the summer sun. Australian punk rock band Trophy Eyes and Worcester, Massachusetts’ Four Year Strong played the center slot on the Festival Stage with entertaining gigs that kept the fans on their feet and shouting for more. Andy Black walked on stage to show that he was a bit glam, metalcore, alternative rock and a whole lot talented. His set kept the afternoon hot and won over everyone in the crowd. With temperatures soaring into the upper 90s, Sleeping With Sirens turned up the heat with a scorching set to close out the bands playing on the Festival Stage.
Fans seeking respite from the extreme heat found it when they came to hear bands rock on the Rockstar Energy Drink Disrupt Festival Main Stage. Played under the shade of a pavilion, Memphis May Fire got things going with hard-hitting set that kept the rock and roll festival in high-gear. With enthusiasm running high, The Story So Far responded by delivering a straight up rock and roll show that let their musical abilities shine. Post-hardcore group Circa Survive stormed on stage and immediately turned up the heat. Frontman Anthony Green wasted no time getting the fans involved in the show by jumping into the photo pit to get up close and personal. He sang with gritty passion as the crowd swarmed around him with eager appreciation. Emo, screamo, pop-punk outfit The Used kept energy levels high with a powerful set that had fans pushing against the barricade to get closer to the action. As expected, singer Bert McCracken stole the spotlight and commanded the stage with an intense presence.
Rockstar Energy Disrupt Festival headlining band Thrice closed the night on a high note by delivering a memorable set. The California group founded by guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi showcased their distorted guitar sounds complemented by heavy licks on their six strings. They dripped black honey all over a sweaty crowd while performing under a killing moon. It was the perfect ending to a great day of live rock and roll music.
