Created in partnership by AEG Live and Right Arm Entertainment, the World's Loudest Month features the biggest names in rock music performing in five distinct U.S. concert atmospheres. In 2012, the World's Loudest Month featured over 100 artists playing for more than 200,000 rock music fans across the country on five consecutive weekends, confirming that rock music is as vital as ever.

The 2013 World's Loudest Month festival dates are as follows:

"The rock festival business is as robust as ever, thanks to the loyal fans around the country and the many young and classic artists that continue to see the WLM festivals as a unique opportunity to showcase to the masses," says Joe Litvag, Co-Executive Producer of World's Loudest Month. "2013 will raise the bar, yet again, we're certain!"

Welcome To Rockville kicks off the World's Loudest Month, returning to Jacksonville's Metropolitan Park along the beautiful St. Johns River for the third year in a row. 2013 will see an increase in capacity to meet the demands of the first two years.

Next up is Carolina Rebellion at Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte. After much success in 2012, the festival has been expanded to two days and will feature a larger camping space and enhanced concert experience at a new location. "The 'Rebels' have spoken and we have listened," says Gary Spivack/Co-Executive Producer for Right Arm Entertainment. "Rock 'n Roll is alive in the Carolinas and we are so excited to announce the expansion of the third annual Rebellion to a full weekend. Also, with a long term move to the Charlotte Motor Speedway, the festival has now found a home that allows us to give you more bands, more rock music, and more entertainment, all while keeping the ticket prices and VIP packages as competitive as possible. It's our mission to make Carolina Rebellion the biggest and best rock festival in the entire Mid-Atlantic region!"

Rockfest—the biggest one-day rock music festival in the United States—celebrates its 21st year in 2013. In 2012, the legendary event sold out for the eighth consecutive year, with 55,000 in attendance at Penn Valley Park in downtown Kansas City.

Rock On The Range—the nation's most-acclaimed active rock festival—will add top national rock bands to its Friday night lineup in 2013. In addition, the ROTR stage and site layout at Columbus Crew Stadium will be adjusted to allow for a better concert experience, and new onsite components that will take ROTR to the next level will be announced in the coming months. The nationally renowned festival, centrally located in the heart of the country, has annually drawn weekend crowds in excess of 70,000 since its inception in 2007. Pre-sale Layaway tickets are on sale now, and VIP, hotel, and camping packages go on sale Friday, November 30.

Rocklahoma—America's biggest Memorial Day Weekend party—will celebrate its seventh year in 2013. The three-day camp & rock festival features the top current active rock artists and classic bands at "Catch the Fever" Festival Grounds in Pryor, OK. In 2012, a national television audience was able to experience many Rocklahoma band performances in HD when AXS TV aired live coverage of the festival. Ticket renewals for 2013 will be available starting Monday, December 3. To renew your 2012 ticket location, call the box office at (866) 310-2288.
