The Best and the Worst

Pros & Cons About the Concert

Money Con: I should start by saying that if you plan to go to this festival, make sure you have plenty of money on you! I brought $60 with me and I spent $50 of it. Some of it was spent on McDonald's before we got there since we had a two and a half hour drive. But at the festival itself, be prepared to spend $4.50 on a bottle of water, $11 for a 24 oz. beer, and $20 - $60 on t-shirts and hoodies. The food is a bit on the pricey side as well.

Money Pro: They did have some free items that you could take advantage of. Pretty much all of the band merchandise had a price tag except some booths were giving away band stickers and posters. The Rockstar Energy Drink tent was giving way free energy drinks but you had to stay in the tent, the drinks could not leave the tent. They're a bit too fruity for my taste so I only had two of them and they still gave me a stomach ache. The Ernie Ball tent had a spin the wheel, get a prize game. You could win stickers, window decals, guitar picks, or a t-shirt. The Best Buy tent was selling band CDs and they had free festival programs and bags to carry your loot in.

This part of the tour took place in Noblesville, Indiana (which is not far from Indianapolis) and there were over 20,000 people who attended. The amount of concert-goers wasn't a pro or a con really, but when you're within the first five rows of a stage and the lead singer of P.O.D. starts coming out into the audience... you better believe that things are about to get crazy! If you're an avid rock concert attendee, then you are well aware of how it goes. There were two side stages: Ernie Ball and Jagermeister sponsered each one. Bands at the Ernie Ball stage were the Battle of the Bands winner Mindset Evolution, Thousand Foot Crutch, Redlight King, and P.O.D. Bands at the Jagermeister stage were Jager Band, Cruz/Within Reason/Attika, Candlelight Red, Deuce, and Fozzy. Main stage bands were Adelita's Way, Papa Roach (Canceled), Staind, Godsmack, and Shinedown. It was a great experience and I would be more than happy to go again next year. However, I hope we get better views than lawn seating.


I personally don't like Rockstar Energy Drinks. They are too "fruity" for my taste. I had two of them at the Festival and it was the first time I had tried them. I prefer Monster Energy Drinks, honestly.

How do you rate Rockstar Energy Drinks (1 being the worst & 5 being the best)?
