May 26, 2011 at 12:06 PM (PT)
Music festival ROCK THE SOUTH will become a disaster relief fundraiser to help those in need in the wake of tornado outbreaks and flooding in the country's Southern states.
One of PREMIER FESTIVAL's summertime music festivals, ROCK THE SOUTH is scheduled for JUNE 11th at MISSISSIPPI VETERANS MEMORIAL STADIUM in JACKSON, MS. The festival will feature NEWSBOYS, DAVID CROWDER BAND, TENTH AVENUE NORTH, FAMILY FORCE 5, LACRAE, MANIC DRIVE, "THE BASEMENT" youth movement founder MATT PITT and comedian BONE HAMPTON.
“The SOUTH has been so hard hit by these recent disasters that we wanted to do something to help. We have PREMIER offices in some of these states, so we have family members and friends who have been personally affected by these devastating conditions. Even those of us several states away are empathizing with everyone, watching the news reports and feeling so helpless. Making this PREMIER festival a disaster relief effort is just one way we can lend a hand," said PREMIER FESTIVALS Director of Operations RICHARD YOUNG.
All net proceeds from ticket sales will go to assist the SALVATION ARMY recovery operations in tornado-devastated neighborhoods throughout the SOUTH, as well as communities along the swollen MISSISSIPPI RIVER. For more information and tickets, visit www.rockthesouthfest.com.
