Rock Fest Organizers Ban Moshing and ‘Hardcore Dancing Styles’ Outside of Designated Areas

If you’re planning on throwing down at this year’s Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin, you may want to reconsider some things, as you’ll be pushed to certain areas if you want to mosh. Festival organizers recently released a list of changes they have planned for the event. While most changes are innocuous, it’s the aforementioned mosh “ban” that’s causing a bit of a stir among metalheads.

Mosh out of those zones and you could face repercussions.

The festival organizers’ statement reads as follows:

We know, however, that moshing is a vital part of rockers’ release and metal experience for many of you we’ve listened to your feedback and are excited to introduce a moshing area at the Budweiser Boneyard Stage as a pilot program.

“This allows us to embrace the energy of moshing while maintaining a safe environment for all festival-goers. We’re setting up designated zones for both moshers and non-moshers, ensuring everyone can still enjoy the show up close. please note, for everyone’s safety, hardcore dancing styles flail moshing will not be permitted. Lets rock responsibly, keep an eye out for our brothers and sisters, and make this a memorable addition to Rock Fest 2024!”
