Watch out Firefly, the Northeast festival scene is about to get even busier.

According to Vanyaland, Evil Vixen Promotions, a Las Vegas based promotions company is slated to introduce a two-day music festival in Quonset area of New England. The festival, called “America Rocks,” will be “The largest music festival of its kind in the entire Northeast and New England region.”

The final lineup is set to be announced in January, however, well-known groups such as Metallica, Foo Fighters and The Black Keys have been tied to potentially performing at the festival, among other headliners.

While the above acts cannot be confirmed at this time, founder of Evil Vixen has said that negotations are ongoing. The festival will also include other special attractions such as a food truck festival, car and motorcycle exhibits, as well as a Mardi Gras themed bar and vendor village.

    “…tied to potentially”–way to go with the double unconfirmed info!

      They are rumors right now but strong enough that those names, along with some others have been tied to this festival. The creator of this fest also mentioned the negotiations with those acts so while I can’t confirm at this time that they will be performing, it’s highly likely.

        Metallica and Black Keys are a dynamic bill already. What are some of the other rumored acts? And do you know if the festival is being held on the Quonset Naval Air Base in Rhode Island? That’s the only Quonset I could find out there.
