“I have a long term plan to make Jacksonville a destination music city. That plan starts with showcasing Met Park to the world. There were people who wanted to ban music from the Park, and there was no way I was going to let that happen. We fought to keep rock alive and are excited to be returning to Metropolitan Park for the fourth year in a row,” says Monster Energy’s Welcome To Rockville producer Danny Wimmer. “This year’s lineup is stronger than ever. Monster Energy’s Welcome To Rockville has become a top destination music festival that draws people from around the country to downtown Jacksonville and the surrounding areas.”
