"Epicenter is celebrating our 5th year and to honor the festival`s anniversary we wanted the lineup to reflect not only the heritage of Southern California music but also showcase the most exciting new rock of the day,” says Gary Spivack of Right Arm Entertainment. “The killer blend of iconic bands like The Offspring, Bad Religion and Pennywise mixed together with A Day To Remember, Pierce The Veil, Fidlar and so much more makes September 21st one Saturday no rock fan should miss."
“We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with Right Arm Entertainment for Epicenter 2013,” says Rich Best, Executive Vice President of Booking for Live Nation / Southern California. “These have been tremendous events, and this year’s massive lineup just takes it to the next level.
