Korn, Shinedown Headlining Rise Above Fest

The 5th Annual Rise Above Fest just announced their lineup, and it might be the best one since the festival’s launch.

Taking place July 22-23 at the Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, Maine, Rise Above Fest will feature Korn and Shinedown as headliners with Stone Sour, Seether, Skillet, Halestorm, Hellyeah and Pop Evil in supporting roles.  (Full lineup can be viewed below.)

As with past years, proceeds from Rise Above Fest will benefit Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE.) The origin of Rise Above Fest, which was started by Seether frontman, Shaun Morgan, was to promote suicide prevention. Morgan’s brother, Eugene Welgemoed, took his own life back in August 2007.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, February 24 at 10 AM EST at
