Rock U Festival or Rock University Festival is a all-ages event lasting twelve hours that is dedicated to promoting unity in the Saint Louis rock-n-roll community. It will take place at Atomic Cowboy on Saturday, September 28th in 2013. The event will feature three stages of rock music simultaneously with over 40 bands/artists ranging from Rock, Hard Rock, Alternative, Punk, Metal, Rap/Rock, Acoustic and Electronic for example. The festival’s attendees and artists alike will range in various age groups, ethnicities, back rounds, belief systems and lifestyles, not to mention genres of rock. Our goal is to have an all-ages show where the “next generation” of bands perform in the same venue as “veteran bands”! A portion of the third annual event’s proceeds will go to Play It Forward.
