The second annual Monster Energy Rock Allegiance built on its record-setting first year success, as the Northeast's biggest rock experience became a full weekend affair Saturday, September 17 and Sunday, September 18 at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, PA, just outside of Philadelphia. Headlining sets from Avenged Sevenfold and Alice In Chains — joined onstage at one point by The Cult's Billy Duffy — were only the capstone to an unforgettable weekend that included performances from Slayer, The Offspring, Breaking Benjamin, Volbeat and many others. With mouth-watering, Philly-centric Gourmet Man Food, regional and national craft beer, band meet-and-greets, autograph signings, and more, fans from around the country—and spanning generations—were fully immersed in rock and roll culture.

Presenting radio station 93.3 WMMR captured the excitement of Monster Energy Rock Allegiance with live broadcasts from the event on both Saturday and Sunday.

Here's a sample of some of the media praise for Monster Energy Rock Allegiance:

"For rock and roll fans, the Monster Energy Rock Allegiance music festival was two days of musical heaven — 40 bands, delicious food and craft beer, and unique musical experiences that are difficult to find anywhere else."

—Kelly Roncace,, September 19, 2016

"This year's Rock Allegiance delivered in every sense of the word, with memorable performances up and down the roster, from headliners Alice In Chains and Avenged Sevenfold, to main-stagers The Offspring and Volbeat, to second-stagers Skindred and Crobot! And the food and fan-experiences were icing on the heavy metal cake. I pledge allegiance to Rock Allegiance and am already anticipating next year — it's a must for east coast metal fans!"

—Josh Friedman, Producer, SiriusXM RUSH 93

"It was my first Rock Allegiance experience, and I have to say it's already one of my favs! I love hanging out with all the diehard East Coast hard rockin' friends who all weekend were soaking up the sick music, killer food, delicious beers, great weather, and amazing vibes. Everyone I talked to was beyond stoked to be there, bands and fans! I'm ready for this sucker again next year, c'mon!"

—Jose Mangin, SiriusXM's Octane and Liquid Metal

"The east coast's answer to the best rock and metal festivals the USA has to offer."
