At The Festival’s New Home In Greater Fort Lauderdale

At Markham Park In Sunrise, FL

Following the tragic February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida, Monster Energy Fort Rock festival producers Danny Wimmer Presents and AEG Presents–along with Corey Taylor, Halestorm and various other music artists performing at theApril 28 & 29 festival at Markham Park in Sunrise, FL–are showing their support for the students and advocating for school safety.

To support initiatives for school safety and create awareness for efforts to promote change, the producers are offering 50% off the price of Monster Energy Fort Rock General Admission weekend tickets for those who sign the “Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won’tpetition created by high school student Julia Kemple of Kalamazoo, Michigan—and signed by 200,000+ people across the nation–in response to the Florida shootings.

Corey Taylor, who will perform with his band Stone Sour at the festival in April, says, “I’m absolutely behind this movement. Not only the name itself, but the reason and the cause. As a father, my one concern is my children. The fact that no one is doing anything worthwhile to change the horrendous laws and circumstances around these shootings is unacceptable. So if the adults can’t extricate themselves from the politics that are keeping them from ACTUALLY making a difference, I support the generation who will.”

The band Halestorm offered this message: “To all the students that have been affected by gun violence, and to students everywhere, YOU are the ones we’ve been waiting for. Our future is what YOU make it and the path is yours to blaze. YOU are the fire! We are proud to stand by you as we push to make this planet a better place. Love, LzzyArejayJoe and Josh of Halestorm.”

Danny Hayes, CEO of Los Angeles-based Danny Wimmer Presents (DWP), co-producers of Monster Energy Fort Rock, says that he was inspired by the collective voice of the nation’s youth and in particular the “Students Fighting Guns Since Adults Won’t” petition. “The wording of Julia’s petition is profound. We should all be ashamed that our nation’s youth feels unprotected by those in charge,” says Hayes.

Hayes continues, “As a Broward County, Florida native, the Stoneman Douglas tragedy really hit home for me. We are so deeply touched and moved by the courage and fortitude of the students at Stoneman Douglas High School. They have turned trauma into strength. As a society we must act quickly to give them the protection they deserve. Like the Woodstock generation that used music festivals to amplify their voice, these kids should be an inspiration to us all. It is incumbent on those with access to the microphone to ensure that their message is heard and acted upon.”

Michael Lang, co-producer and co-creator of Woodstock and longtime DWP friend, agrees, saying, “I am so inspired by the students of Parkland and others around the country for speaking up and not allowing the same old NRA political rhetoric and lack of action to dampen their commitment. It is this kind of long-term determination and engagement that leads to real movement. It gives me great hope for the future of our country, to know that there is this generation of young people ready to take up the fight for positive change, much as my generation did in the ‘60s. I can only hope that with our support this movement will continue to grow and take up the reins not only on sensible gun control, but on the many issues that will affect their lives and the lives of everyone on the planet. ”

This special Monster Energy Fort Rock promotion—created in an effort to encourage positive social change by raising awareness for this petition—will be available to future Monster Energy Fort Rock ticket buyers. For those who already purchased a ticket, the promoters ask that you still please sign this petition.

Those who would like to utilize the 50% off ticket promotion simply need to send a screenshot of their signed petition or forward their confirmation email to The promotion is available through April 1, 2018, while supplies last.
