Had a wonderful time at Rockville. The only thing that I wish was different is how long they delayed it for the minor storm we had but the show and the venue was amazing. Couldn't have asked for a better music fest.

The Welcome to Rockville shows were awesome the bands were great. The park is nice and big, my only complaint was we paid extra money for passes for overcrowded VIP areas. The VIP area was too small for the amount of tickets sold. It didn't have the VIP feel, when you couldn't find a seat or table to eat at for 3 days. We sat on the ground and ate and took breaks sitting on ground. We won't be paying extra for VIP passes to this event again in the future.

Welcome to Rockville is an annual three day hard rock/ metal festival held at the end of April or beginning of May. This was my second festival by DWP productions. There are several high capacity hotels all within a mile of Metropolitan Park. They also provide camping and plenty of parking. I also noticed golf cart "trollies" transporting fans. There were designated areas for Uber and Lyft. In my opinion, the St Johns Water Taxi was the most convenient and most enjoyable. Round trip was $10 a person. If you are staying at any of the hotels on either side of the river, this is the way to go. I stayed at the Omni Hotel on Water St and it was a short walk to dock at Jacksonville Landing for pick up and drop off. We never waited more than 20 minutes either way. Unlike the the last DWP festival we attended, Welcome to Rockville had plenty of shade to escape to and cool off. If I had known this ahead of time I probably would not have paid the extra $250 a ticket for the VIP. The VIP area provides a tent, air conditioned bathrooms and some seating..In my opinion, its too far away from the stage and there is no where near enough seating for the number of VIP tickets they sell. This was not the case for the DWP show in North Carolina, Carolina Rebellion. Which is now Epicenter in Rockingham NC. Not sure what the conditions are in Rockingham, but the Rebellion in Charlotte was all out in the open with now where to escape the heat. VIP was worth the money for that one...Still had to sit on the ground, not enough chairs, but at least we were under a tent. So if you are going to WTR and like to be closer to the stage, don't bother with the VIP. Overall it seems like a great place for a music festival and they do a pretty good job keeping the fans in mind. Bring your wallet, every time you get a beer it will cost you $12 and the food is pretty pricey. One more tip, take clear or mesh draw string back packs, thats all you can get in with. They do require you to go through metal detector, but they do not pat you down.

Great location for a music festival. Three separate stages at least. Also, close proximity to Renaissance hotel (across the river). River taxi is clutch!

Rockville was a great event. Alot of good bands for the price. The venue is very open and kept things busy. Food was a bit pricy and there wasnt alot of shade, but overrall the event was fantastic.
