Get ready to be disrupted by a new traveling festival. This summer marks the beginning of The Rockstar Energy Drink DISRUPT Festival. There are 25 dates for the festival, which comes to the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre on June 26. Tickets go on sale March 29 at 10 a.m.

According to their website (, “Featuring some of the biggest names in rock, as well as the genre’s rising stars, The Rockstar Energy DISRUPT Festival is the summer’s premiere touring festival. Fans throughout the United States and Canada will be immersed into a full-day interactive experience where they will not only be able to hear some of their favorite bands but will also be exposed to the latest in lifestyle brands and pop-up activations. Unlike most other festivals, there will only be one band performing at a time, avoiding conflicting set times and allowing fans to experience the full lineup in one rock-filled day.”

Fans that bring an empty 16-ounce can of Rockstar Energy Drink to recycle at the main gate will have the opportunity to skip the line and to be entered to win a signed festival guitar and exclusive meet & greet with festival headliners.

The lineup is different at every stop, but the current Tampa lineup is as follows: The Used, Thrice, The Story So Far, Sleeping with Sirens, Andy Black, Four Year Strong, Trophy Eyes, Juliet Simms and Hyro the Hero.

Tickets will be available at
