Shinedown frontman Brent Smith says:  “I’ve always envisioned the Carnival of Madness as more than just a music festival.  It is a celebration of rock music where the lines between those on stage and those in the audience are blurred.  Where everyone is sharing in this amazing moment. Truly experiencing the power of rock music together.  This year, we’ve gathered artists from across the rock spectrum to bring the most dynamic Carnival of Madness to date.  Come join us.”

Shinedown are no strangers to Carnival of Madness having co-headlined the rock spectacle in four of its five prior US runs as well as its just concluded debut UK edition. The multi-platinum certified rock band returned home and immediately set out on a major US headline tour, concluding this Friday, March 18th at Deadwood, SD’s Deadwood Casino. Next up is a wide-ranging spring schedule that spans headline shows, co-headline dates with Five Finger Death Punch and special guests P.O.D., and an array of US festivals and radio-sponsored concerts including Tucson, AZ’s KMFA Day 2016 (April 16th), Tampa, FL’s 98Rockfest (April 29th), Ft.
