The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival unites more than a half-dozen hard-rock heavyweights for a full day of head-banging, eardrum-pummeling fun. Rather than jumping headfirst into a funnel cloud, guests can let artists such as Three Days Grace and Seether blow them away with power chords and hair-raising lyrics. After its sophomore album spawned the chart toppers "Never Too Late" and "Animal I've Become," Three Days Grace released 2009's Life Starts Now, which explores the heartache of messy breakups and board-game defeats. Seether will visit from South Africa to perform its new album, Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray, and Welsh-metal purveyors Bullet for My Valentine will perform selections from its latest release, Fever. Fest-goers can pump their fists during Escape the Fate's visceral screamo show or gently sway as Sevendust alternates bass-cranking riffs with hushed Gregorian chants.
