“I’ve always envisioned the Carnival of Madness as more than just a music festival,” Shinedown singer Brent Smith said in a statement. “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.”
