Pig Out BBQ Village: The expanded Pig Out BBQ Village will feature Gourmet Man Food that reflects the cuisine of the region and the cultural food explosion that is happening around the country. Gourmet Man Food (“GMF”) has been part of American culture since pioneers started experimenting with their cowboy menus to “kick things up a notch.” Since then, it’s become a phenomenon of artistically created, statement-making food, served in large portions with a powerful presentation. It’s a unique twist to foods you know mixed with flavors you don’t expect. The 2016 Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion Pig Out BBQ Village lineup includes:Angry Bird Grill, Aporkalypse Now, Cheese Louise, Cravin’ Cajun, Mac Attack, Master Of Patties, Ollie’s Tots, Porchetta, and Queencity Q. VIP Lounge Gourmet Man Food vendors include Chicago Taste Authority, Flip Flop Rob’s BBQ, Island Noodles, Little Smoke, Pie Baby, and What’s The Catch.
Monster Energy: Monster Energy will be keeping all Rebels fueled up and ready to rock by offering free sampling on their Monster Energy viewing deck. Enjoy Monster Energy drinks from one of the best seats in the house. Make sure to check back throughout the festival for a schedule of Monster Energy’s interactive artist experiences. Monster Energy is giving away 25 pairs of tickets at select Circle K locations and other retail outlets throughout the NC area now through April 25. One lucky winner will receive a Monster Energy Drink grand prize that includes tickets, hotel, spending cash and a SIXX:A.M. meet & greet at Carolina Rebellion.
Bud Light: America, they say we’re a nation divided. They say we disagree on everything, but they’re wrong. We agree on a lot: liberty, justice, ROCK MUSIC, and beer. Nothing brings America together like Bud Light and nothing brings rock fans together like Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion. That’s why we’ve formed the Bud Light Party – a party for everyone. We are the fake political party America needs right now and we’re stopping by Monster Energy Carolina Rebellion to supply ice cold beer all weekend long. Because no matter where we stand on the issues, we all sit on the bar stools with our hands raised in the air listening to our favorite rock bands. America has seen the light, and there’s a Bud in front of it.
