With concerts coming back, one would imagine that festivals would come back as well. While some won't come back for a while, there will be one this year in Florida; Rebel Rock.

It's a 3 day festival, September 24th-26th, held in Orlando with headliners Limp Bizkit, Five Finger Death Punch & Rise Against. A ton of other metal bands are included in the festival: Skillet, Motionless In White, Pop Evil & Philip Anselmo. However... there is ONE band that stuck out to me...

It’s official!! Circa Arcana opening up for Limp Bizkit! As some of you may know I’m a HUGE Bizkit fan, so this is...

That's right. One of our VERY OWN bands will be performing on the same day as Limp Bizkit & Machine Gun Kelly: Circa Arcana. As of right now, they are the ONLY band from El Paso in the lineup.

Needless to say, when I asked some of the members FROM Circa Arcana, they were ecstatic. "Ever since we got the offer to play it, I've been so excited since day one," said drummer Frankie Loya. "My dream as a little kid was to play a big festival & my dream is finally coming true. I can't wait to show the world who we are, to represent El Paso, & show why you should know who we are!".

The bassist Ben Reyes, the one who made the announcement on Facebook, was even more excited. "Since I was in high school & Limp Bizkit came out with'Faith', I was curious at first. Then I ended up buying  3 Dollar Bill, & it blew my mind. The emotion & dynamics in that album just grabbed my soul & took me with it. Since then I've loved just about everything they've put out. Sam Rivers has always been my idol & Limp Bizkit has always been in my top 5 favorite bands."

You can see the music video for "Esoteric" right HERE & you can hear Circa Arcana on Q Connected, Sunday nights at 10pm on 95.5 KLAQ.
