18th Annual Heavy Rebel Weekender in the Arts District  July 6-8

It wouldn't be a Fourth of July week without the wicked return of Heavy Rebel Weekender to the Arts District. Now in its 18th year, the three-day musical event will be July 6-8 with more than 90 groups playing everything, including rock 'n' roll, punk, rockabilly, country and swing. It is arguably the most interesting downtown event of the year. The festival's theme highlights the 1950s era, in which James Dean made rebellion tragically hip and spawned an entire trend in pop culture. For the out-of-the ordinary, there is the popular Mud Wrestling Contest, a Beer-Guzzlin'-in-60-Seconds Contest, and a Krispy Kreme Doughnut Eating Contest. Scary! Full refreshments will be provided during the entire event near the Millennium Center.

Tickets for the event are $90 (for a 3-day pass) and $35 (for a single day pass) in advance, $100 (a 3-day pass) and $40 (a single day pass) the day of the event; they can be purchased in advance at the Web site and at the door (cash only). The Millennium Center is located 101 West Fifth Street.  For more information and visuals, visit
