The dates for the 2015 World’s Loudest Month festival series have been revealed, including the addition of the new Northern Invasion festival outside Minneapolis/St. Paul.

“With each passing year we continue to work hard to bring something special to the rock fans around the country and to make it easy and convenie nt for them to attend our events,” comments Joe Litvag, co-executive producer of the WLM series for AEG Live. “That was the reason behind starting Northern Invasion in the upper Midwest. There is such a tremendous community of rock fans in places like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North and South Dakota, and nothing was all that convenient for them. So, we t hought, ‘Why not bring them a rock festival that they can call their own?’”
“After selling over 360,000 tickets last year for World’s Loudest Month we are constantly looking for great cities and strong markets to add to the family of festivals associated with WLM. Minneapolis has an incredible rock radio stat ion and it’s only fitting that we bring Northern Invasion to the region as our newest destination to the Wor ld’s Loudest Month,” says Danny Wimmer, co-executive producer of the WLM series for DWP.
