The Great Smoky Mountains may be most closely associated with country and bluegrass music, but hard rock is taking over the tourist town of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee this fall. The inaugural Monsters on the Mountain Festival will take place over three days in October and feature performances by Tesla, Vince Neil of Motley Crüe, Night Ranger, Pat Travers, Winger, Slaughter and more. SiriusXM’s Eddie Trunk will host the event along with comedians Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine.
Monsters of the Mountain was created by the same team behind the Monsters of Rock Cruise and marks the first “Monsters” even in nearly two years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tickets for the festival, taking place October 15th, 16th and 17th, are on sale now through the festival’s website. All ticket holders will receive complimentary parking and unlimited access to the performances, as well as access to the Rock N’ Roll Vendor Market, Rock N’ Roll Art Gallery, and The Ultimate Tailgate Party, with more to be announced.
The full lineup includes: Tesla, Vince Neil of Motley Crüe, Night Ranger, Winger, Kix, Slaughter, Firehouse, Eclipse, Pat Travers, Bulletboys, Vixen, Kingdom Come, Lynch Mob, Rhino Bucket, Liliac, Native Sons, Gilby Clark, John Corabi, Anthony Corder, Mark Evans, Randy Hansen, and Jeff Scott Soto & Jason Bieler.
