ROCK THE BELLS FAQS:
1. Why is the show being held at NOS Events Center?
The grounds are better suited for a European-style music festival. With all of the open space, the scenic lagoon, and spacious aircraft hangers available, the NOS Events Center is the best place to have our show. The Orange Pavilion has a very large stage with an even larger viewing window. It’s a true general admission festival. Please be aware that moshing or crowd surfing may occur at this event. Hot & cold food stands, 21+ bars, friendly staff & security, clean flush restrooms, patrolled parking, and ATM’s. There will be a large vendor village where you can buy all your festival essentials, clothes, jewelry, music, and unique merchandise.
2. What about the weather?
Rock The Bells will happen rain or shine. Every precaution has been made to ensure that the quality of the show will not be affected by inclement weather.
3. I heard tickets might sell out. There are plenty of tickets available for Rock The Bells?
Buying tickets early avoids being charged more closer to the date of the show or waiting in line at the event. The NOS Events Center floor plan will be open and spacious. Don’t worry about tickets selling out.
4. Are the bands playing short “radio festival” style sets?
Rock The Bells allows the artists ample time to play full live sets. Usually, artists will only have enough time to play a few songs at your favorite radio stations’ music festival or Summer Jam. Rock The Bells allows its artists/bands to play all their favorite songs and even some new material. There will be some awesome groundbreaking music at this year’s show. There will be no “short” sets.
