Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents who puts on the festival, commented on Skynyrd’s return to the festival after making the move from Jacksonville to Daytona Beach. “After nine great years in Jacksonville, it was a difficult decision to move Welcome To Rockville to a new home – but it was a necessary decision for the festival to continue to grow and deliver the kind of experience that Florida’s rock fans deserve. I’m so humbled and honored that Lynyrd Skynyrd is coming with us to Daytona Beach to celebrate 10 years of Welcome To Rockville with their last-ever North Florida area show.” It was previously held at the TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.
