What’s in a name?
Most everywhere that it rumbles into town, it’s simply known as the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. But when the fest roars into SPAC on Tuesday (August 13), local radio station Q-103FM has jumped on board, renaming the fest Q-Ruption. And if you go to the SPAC website, you’ll find all the bases covered with the rather unwieldy festival name – Q-Ruption 2013 Is the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival.
Which, of course, is not to be confused with the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival that was at SPAC a couple of weeks ago.
OK, got it?
Anyway, what you really want to know is who’s playing? And when, right? Well, gates open at 2pm, and there are three stages for the fest – two in the afternoon – with the main amphitheater stage kicking in at 6:30pm. Ready for the show? Here’s the complete schedule for all three stages:
