RTR YEARBOOK

Still Rockin' Since 1999

WITH 20+ YEARS BEHIND US AND STILL GOING STRONG,
WE HAVE SOME EPIC STORIES TO TELL.

As you browse the previous lineups below, you can see that we always try to combine an impressive variety of the top groups from the classic and current rock era with heavy metal groups to create a truly one of a kind, once a year festival that includes a little something for everyone.

THE EARLY YEARS

Back in 1999, a bunch of old rockers and cowboys got together in a field for a weekend of music, friends, and friends. A couple years later, in 2001, as the gathering had become an annual event and the number of friends grew year over year, Rockin' the Rivers was born.
