Monsters Of Rock Cruise Announces “Monsters On The Mountains” Festival.

Pigeon Forge, TN – October 15-17, 2021

Not satisfied with the High Seas, Larry Morand (Monsters of Rock Cruise founder) has decided to go even higher and to take his festival to the Mountains of Pigeon Forge, TN for the first “Monsters On The Mountain” Rock Festival.

The band announcements started last week with “Motley Crue” singer, Vince Neil, Night Ranger, KIX, The Bulletboys, Rhino Bucket and Gilby Clarke and have since added other MORC veterans, Tesla, Winger, Slaughter, Vixen, Eclipse and Kingdom Come.

The Festival will include multiple stages, games, acoustic performances and after parties.

Like the Monsters Of Rock Cruises, The Event will be hosted by Sirius XM’s Eddie Trunk along with his two cohorts, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine.

Vendors from all over the country will be showing and selling their wares. Everything from candles and clothing, to original works of art, guitars, Rock N’ Roll furniture, and much more!

The Tailgate Party:

Outside, in the fresh Smoky Mountain air, will be our fan interaction area. There you will find another small stage, a beer garden, games, and more. This area will be open prior to festival doors and close at various times throughout the festival weekend.
