Rolling Rock Music Fest Relocation Negotiations Done

The three-year-old Rolling Rock Town Fair and music festival is definitely moving to Pittsburgh's 65,000-capacity Heinz Field from the Westmoreland Fairgrounds this summer (CelebrityAccess, December 13).

"It will be either July 12 or July 26, but it will happen, God willing," said Heinz Field GM Jimmy Sacco in the Pittsburgh Gazette, who reached a deal with Latrobe Brewing Co.

Sacco has big plans for Heinz Field and is looking to stage more entertainment events. To date, the only other music event confirmed is the Pittsburgh Folk Festival May 23-25.

This year's Rolling Rock talent hasn't been lined up yet, but past headliners were the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2000, its inaugural year; Stone Temple Pilots in 2001 and Godsmack in 2002.
