Historical entertainment planned for joint celebration of three Southwest Arkansas milestone anniversaries
1 p.m. Arkansas State Fairgrounds. $45.
Here's a list of the bands performing at this year's Edgefest Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival: Shinedown, Godsmack, Staind, Papa Roach, Adelita's Way, P.O.D., Fozzy, In This Moment, Deuce, Redlight King, Mindset Revolution, Candlelight Red, Playing with Karma.
According to the festival's website, you can "enjoy a cool, tasty, free Rockstar Energy Drink then shift your focus across the festival to the Ernie Ball and Jagermeister stages!" So everybody will probably have at least one Rockstar energy drink in them.
The way they scheduled it seems like a good idea. Basically, all the headliners are playing consecutively so you won't have to choose between Godsmack and Staind or Papa Roach and Shinedown. It sucks when you're at a music festival and you have to make tough choices because two of your favorite bands are playing at the same time.
Also: the rap rock band Deuce — scheduled to play the Ernie Ball Stage at 3:50 p.m. — has a song called "Till I Drop" and one called "Let's Get it Crackin.' "
