FROM THE OWNERS OF ROCK USA!7/9/14
We thought we would take a moment to let you into our world of booking the talent for Rock USA. Although we are proud of our talent lineup this year, we are aware that it does not cover all music tastes. In fact, the lineup does not reflect the talent mix we had created. We wanted a solid mix of rock, classic rock, metal, head-banger and virtually every imaginable fragment of rock. In other words, from our polls, in addition to this year’s lineup we are well aware that our rock fans also want “everything rock” and that is what we set out to do!
From the talk on the street, the available talent is expected to blow wide open for 2015 and we intend to take full advantage of it! In fact, we plan on spending an additional $500,000 to book the talent mix you want. Our talent budget will increase to an incredible $2.4 million dollars. We did something very similar with Country USA and struck a home-run with monster talent and our first sell-out ever! We intend to do the same with Rock USA. Tell us who you want and we will go for it!
Here’s a short list of talent we are looking at for Rock USA 2015: Metallica, Pearl Jam, Def Leppard, Stone Temple Pilots, Guns N’ Roses, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Avenged Sevenfold, Judas Priest, Nickelback, Iron Maiden, ZZ Top, Alice In Chains. Granted, we won’t get them all but we need you to tell us who you want and we will take the shot.

New Parking Safety Band3/8/14
Country USA, Inc., Rock USA, Inc., The Oshkosh Police Department and Winnebago County Sheriff's Department have expressed serious concerns regarding the safety of increasing high-risk pedestrian traffic on Washburn Avenue, (the frontage road). To underscore the problem, it was noted that a pedestrian was injured by a hit and run driver at last year's Country USA Festival.
In an effort to keep concert fans safe, Country USA, Inc. and Rock USA, Inc. will implement a new policy for this year's festivals. Everyone attending the festivals will be required to have one of three wristbands to enter the actual concert grounds:
- Camping Wristband.
- VIP Wristband.
- Parking Safety Band. This new wristband has been created by Country USA and Rock USA in an attempt to reduce pedestrian traffic on Washburn Avenue for safety reasons.
The Parking Safety Band will be given out free upon purchasing a festival parking pass. Limit is 8 bands per vehicle, one parking pass per vehicle. A different color Safety band will be given out each day. Anyone entering the grounds on foot will be required to purchase a Safety Band for $5.00 per person. Again, the Safety Band will be given out free upon purchasing a festival parking pass. The purpose of the Safety Band is to encourage festival patrons to park in the safest location which Country USA believes to be the festival grounds.
In 2010 Country USA created a safe turn-around for pedestrian drop offs but this turn-around was used by less than 20 vehicles over the 5 days. We do realize this will be an inconvenience for the very few that used the turn-around, however safety is our number one concern and we will not allow exceptions.
If you have any questions about the new Parking Safety Band policy, please feel free to call the Starshow Ticket Center at 920-882-4944.
