Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top said, “ZZ Top is coming at’cha with some raucous rock ‘n’ roll to the Rebellion. We are looking forward to this massive rock party… Come on!”

Co-Executive Producer Danny Wimmer said, “From its inception, we believed Carolina Rebellion would grow into a three-day festival. There is a loyal rock fan base here to support Rebellion’s continued growth. While this of course means another full day of music, including more classic artists, the entire festival experience will be noticeably enhanced. This year’s emphasis will be on food. We will be hosting a ‘Gourmet Man Food’ offering that reflects the cultural food explosion that is happening all around the country.”
