Empire Rockfest is the city’s premier rock festival, and the largest rock festival in the region. Located in beautiful Downtown Belleville beside the historic Empire Theatre this is an outdoor venue for you and 3,600 friends that features 3 nights of killer rock music.
The 13th instalment of this annual event has been postponed until July 2020. Each year this event is a must attend party of the summer, having played host to such chart topping bands as; Sum 41, Billy Talent, Sam Roberts Band, The Trews, The Sheepdogs, The Glorious Sons and the Arkells just to name a few, next years event will live up to the hype. The event is not only a place to see award winning artists, but also a great place to discover new up and coming artists as well. Rockfest participates in the Discover Music City program which provides promising local bands an opportunity to open up each show and showcase their talent. Mark Rashotte, life-long musician and owner of the Empire Theatre, was always looking for ways to promote and support the amazing local talent we have here and so Discover Music City was born.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2020 lineup or visit The Empire Theatre for other great shows and events.
