The first annual Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR launches August 17 in Minneapolis, MN and will visit arenas and amphitheatres across North America before wrapping October 4 in Madison, WI. The late summer trek features a stellar active rock lineup including multi-platinum headliner Disturbed, who will release their new album Asylum in August. Multi-platinum co-headliner Avenged Sevenfold will release their new CD Nightmare July 17, 2010. The main stage will also feature Stone Sour, whose new CD Audio Secrecy is set for release this summer, and Halestorm. The potent rock lineup for the touring music and lifestyle jaunt also features performances from Jagermeister Second Stage headliners Hellyeah, as well as Airbourne, Hail The Villain, New Medicine and the local Jagermeister-sponsored opener in each city. The festival is being produced by John Reese, John Oakes and CAA in conjunction with Live Nation.
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival is proud to announce that they’ve formed an alliance with Child Find of America, a national not-for-profit organization dedicated to the prevention and resolution of child abduction. A portion of the proceeds of each Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival ticket sold will go to Child Find of America. In addition, UPROAR is launching an awareness campaign that will include wrapping the tour’s semi trucks with images of missing children, providing nationwide exposure on major highways throughout North America for over six weeks; a text-to-donate campaign; as well as social media outreach to bring safety messages and images of missing children to rock music lovers worldwide. Child Find of America–which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year–will also have an onsite presence at each festival date.
UPROAR is honored to announce that Corey Taylor–vocalist of Slipknot and UPROAR artist Stone Sour–has offered his assistance with the Child Find of America awareness campaign on this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival. Corey will be featured in a two-minute public service announcement that will reach tens of thousands of rock fans across North America, warning them of the dangers and perils of child abduction, running away and providing information on what people can do to help.
According to Child Find, every day 2,300 children are reported missing in America. Missing children can be victims of family abduction, non-family abduction or they can be runaways. Child Find offers families various services including free investigation and location services, free kidnapping prevention programs, free referral and support services and free mediation services for parental abduction cases. Each year, Child Find of America receives between 15,000-20,000 calls for help from searching parents, family members, law enforcement and other agencies, children and educators. Their efforts positively impact thousands of children and directly bring more than 400 children to a safe and legal environment every year. More information on Child Find of America can be found at www.childfindofamerica.org, and details about what you can do to help will be posted at www.RockstarUproar.com in the coming weeks.
“I have three daughters and they are the most important thing in my life,” says John Reese, Producer of UPROAR. “After the Chelsea King tragedy we made a conscious decision that we were going to make strong efforts to help ensure that something like that doesn’t happen again. Working with and supporting Child Find of America is something that is very near and dear to our hearts.”
Donna Linder, Executive Director of Child Find of America, explains: “We’re very excited by this great opportunity to increase awareness and knowledge about the issue of missing children to the general public, as well as opening an avenue to offer prevention and safety tips to a difficult-to-reach age demographic. The passion and energy the UPROAR team has expressed has been incredible and their generosity is deeply appreciated.”

Child Find was founded in 1980 by the mother of a missing child in upstate New York, when there was limited law enforcement response to missing children and no laws about parental/family abduction. Little was understood about the devastation child abduction has on the child. Child Find has played a significant role in the creation of laws that now make all forms of child abduction a crime, in the establishment of a national clearinghouse to assist law enforcement in their investigations, in the establishment of May 25th as National Missing Children’s Day and in the increased media attention given to missing children cases.
The Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival is made possible through the support of our sponsors including Rockstar Energy Drink, Best Buy, Guitar Player Magazine, The Marines, Skull Candy featuring their “2xl Disturbed buds,” Jagermeister USA, Jagermeister Canada, www.DiNGLIFE.com, and Schecter Guitars who will offer the chance to win “the guitars off the backs of Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed.”
