Rocktoberfest will take place October 19 at Fantasy of Flight in Lakeland, FL and is billed as "the ultimate one-day line-up of classic rock artists." The 12 hours of non-stop
rock will be performed live on dual stages, featuring performances by David Lee Roth, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Meat Loaf, Ace Frehley, Joan Jett, Vince Neil (former singer of Motley Crue), Warrant, Firehouse, Quiet Riot and Dokken. Fantasy of Flight, an expansive picturesque setting, is centrally located in the heart of Florida where the climate is most temperate. It is one hour west of Orlando and one hour east of Tampa on Interstate 4.
Rocktoberfest takes place the same week as Biketoberfest in Daytona, Florida, which will give bikers and music fans one more event to enjoy in Florida.
The promoter is Woodfest Promotions founded in 1999 by Allan Wood and James Chapman, which brings nationally known musicians to central Florida for festival style events. They feel that they fill a niche overlooked or avoided by larger promotion companies.
