Rockin' the Rivers Festival 2019
Rockin the Rivers, Montana's original 3 day Rockfest, is shaking things up in their 19th year. Classically a Friday, Saturday and Sunday event- this year the festival starts on Thursday and ends with a blow out party on Saturday night. Although the days have shifted, the music and the party is just as intense and just a loud as the previous (almost) two decades.
The 2019 lineup features artists with sixty-four top 40 hits with thirty of them charting Billboard's top 10. Some artists will be recognizable to the long time Rockin the Rivers fans and others like Zakk Wylde's hard hitting, guitar shredding band, Zakk Sabbath will be hitting the Rockin' stage for the first time.
Thursday night kicks back to the 80s and 90s, featuring hits from the big hair power ballad bands of Cheap Trick and Warrant. Rockin fans will be taken back in time with the songs, The Flame, Can't Stop Falling Into Love, Heaven and the crowd favorite, Cherry Pie. Moving through the decades, Saliva hit the scene in early 2000s with the in your face rock hit, Your Disease followed with hit, Always.
Friday kicks up the intensity with Viking Thunder God, Zakk Wylde. Tapped at the age of 19 to join Ozzy Osbourne's band as lead guitarist, Zakk Wylde's, Zakk Sabbath will be performing hits from Black Sabbath's first six albums, including songs from the title album Black Sabbath, Master of Reality and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Heavy Metal hitter, Dokken keeps the shred coming with hits Alone Again and In My Dreams.
The festival finishes strong on Saturday with some of the lineups biggest hit makers.
