Get your earplugs ready.
The 2019 edition of 98 Rockfest has unveiled its lineup for next year's festival, taking place April 14 at Amalie Arena in Tampa, with a couple of bone-rattling hard rock groups leading the way: Godsmack and Three Days Grace. Rival Sons, Motionless in White and P.O.D. are also on the bill. More acts will be added.
The rock station is also bringing back its free pre-show on the Amalie Arena plaza that day, with P.O.D. headlining. And Motionless In White will participate in an acoustic show that afternoon for VIP ticketholders, who will also receive early entry, access to a pre-show party and more.
Tickets start at $29; floor access is $75 and VIP packages are $199. A pre-sale begins at 10 a.m. Thursday, with a general on-sale on Monday. And there will be a ticket deal running Black Friday through Cyber Monday, where fans can get a four-pack of tickets for $98.
