"We've spent the better part of two years searching for the perfect location to create a festival that is just for the rabid rock fans of New England," says Joe Litvag, executive producer of Revolution Rock Festival for AEG Live. "After seeing the incredible property and amenities offered at Foxwoods Resort Casino, I knew we had finally found a home. It's really easy to get to from just about anywhere in the region, and the fans can make a whole weekend out of it with a top-notch resort, golf, spa, shopping, great restaurants, and of course the gaming. Our hope is that Revolution Rock Festival will become an institution for rock fans of the Northeast and will be thought of as 'New England's rock festival' for years to come!"

"Foxwoods has been at the forefront of entertainment since we opened in 1992, and events like this festival will continue to make Foxwoods the market leader."
