Rocklahoma 2023

Rocklahoma 2023

SEPTEMBER 01-03, 2023


Rocklahoma puts the search for "life, liberty and the pursuit of rock and roll” to an end with …. Butt Rock in Oklahoma?

Bring your Ed Hardy tank tops and Rock Revival jeans out from the archives because the divorced dad party of the year is here. This Labor Day weekend, take a trip back to the early 2000s when Nu Metal ruled American rock music. While it’s not exactly your modern day Woodstock, Rocklahoma is nostalgia for a different era, the Butt Rock era. The divisive Butt Rock genre that ruled the 80s Sunset Strip and re-emerged during the post-grunge late-90s era comes to life again in the grassy fields of middle America. Butt Rock legends Black Stone Cherry perform on Friday, Theory of a Deadman on Saturday and Buckcherry on Sunday. Rocklahoma isn’t just a revival though. It’s one of the largest rock festivals in the nation. Across four stages, it will showcase 50 artists including Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, Pantera and Rob Zombie, over three days plus the kickoff party on Thursday. (The full lineup is below.) 

Rocklahoma is big on camping, too. Just over 15,000 attendees camp out on the festival grounds. Hard rock fans look forward to the fest all year, and, for those desperate to get the party started early, the campgrounds open five days before the festival. Tents, RVs, trailers and all “vehicles made for sleeping” are allowed on the campgrounds, but glamping options are also available if you’re not one to rough it. The campgrounds are notoriously raunchy, so don’t be surprised if you see a stripper pole in the back of a pick-up truck: that’s only the tip of the iceberg. It’s hard to come down from all the thrashing and drinking, so go ahead and take those extra two days to load out your gear.
