From Rockin’ the Rivers

Rockin’ the Rivers, Montana’s original three-day Rockfest, is shaking things up in its 19th year.

Classically a Friday, Saturday and Sunday event, this year the festival starts Thursday and ends with a blow-out party Saturday night, Aug. 8-10, near Three Forks.

Although the days have shifted, the music and the party is just as intense and just a loud as the previous almost two decades.

The 2019 lineup features artists with 64 top 40 hits with 30 of them charting Billboard’s top 10. Some artists will be recognizable to the long-time Rockin’ the Rivers fans, and others like Zakk Wylde’s hard hitting, guitar shredding band, Zakk Sabbath will be hitting the Rockin’ stage for the first time.

Thursday night kicks back to the ’80s and ’90s, featuring hits from the big hair power ballad bands of Cheap Trick and Warrant. Rockin’ fans will be taken back in time with songs like “The Flame,” “Can’t Stop Falling Into Love,” “Heaven” and the crowd-favorite “Cherry Pie. ”

Moving through the decades, Saliva hit the scene in early 2000s with the in your face rock hit “Your Disease” followed with hit “Always.”

Friday kicks up the intensity with Viking Thunder God Zakk Wylde. Tapped at the age of 19 to join Ozzy Osbourne’s band as lead guitarist, Zakk Wylde’s, Zakk Sabbath will be performing hits from Black Sabbath’s first six albums, including songs from the title album Black Sabbath, Master of Reality and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Heavy metal hitter Dokken keeps the shred coming with hits “Alone Again” and “In My Dreams.”

The festival finishes strong Saturday with some of the lineups biggest hit makers. Lou Gramm, original voice of Foreigner, and Asia featuring John Payne headline and will be playing a set packed with all of Foreigner and Asia’s top hits including power ballad “I Want To Know What Love Is” and Asia hit “Heat of the Moment.”

The Guess Who and Hinder round out the hit-churning lineup with more than 26 top 40 hits between them featuring “American Woman,” “No Time,” “Lips of an Angel,” “All American Nightmare,” and many more.

With almost 30 bands on two stages, there’s music for everyone at this Montana-owned festival.
