Attention, rockers! Loudwire Festival is hosting dozens of well-known bands — including Linkin Park, Weezer, Rob Zombie and more — Friday through Sunday, June 26-28. Tickets start at $100 for students and $115 for general admission. Single-day tickets range from $59-$69 depending on the day. Camping is also available starting at $115 for the duration of the festival.

Loudwire Festival will be held at Jam Ranch, which is located at 1065 Highway 6 & 50 in Mack, Colo. The event replaces Rock Jam, an annual festival held in the Grand Junction area from 2003 to 2013. Like Rock Jam, food, drink and merchandise vendors will also be located on site.

Loudwire was created to fill the void Rock Jam left when Townsquare Media decided to revise the event.

“It’s a strong lineup and, compared to other festivals, tickets are [being sold] at an attractive price,” said Dhruv Prasad, vice president of Townsquare Media, which organizes the event. “We’re pretty excited.”

According to Prasad, so far the festival reception has been well received from fans.

“With the added festival weekend, we hope to double the economic impact in the future,” Prasad said, noting that Loudwire will follow Country Jam by only a weekend.

“I feel optimistic of good results this first year,” he added.

Shuttles to Loudwire Festival will stop at four spots throughout the Grand Valley, including Central High School in Grand Junction, Grand Junction High School in Grand Junction. Fruita High School in Fruita and DoubleTree by Hilton in Grand Junction. Shuttle passes cost $30 for the entire weekend.

“Loudwire is gaining nice attention around the state,” said Mistalynn Meyeraan, Grand Junction Visitor Bureau’s spokeswoman. “We have high hopes that it will bring in new visitors to the valley. A new festival creates buzz for an area and we are excited to see the reaction from our guests.”

Starting Friday, June 26, at 3:30 p.m. One — The Only Tribute To Metallica will kick off the festival. Other bands, playing from 4:30-9:30 p.m., include Zamtrip, Vajra, In This Moment, Theory of a Deadman, The Blackfires and 3 Pill Morning. Weezer will headline on Friday at 9:30 p.m.
