Big name acts set to Rock the South in Cullman this summer

Cullman, AL (WAFF) - The second annual Rock the South festival is coming together, and signing some huge names.

Friday morning, organizers announced the first round of headliners. Gregg Allman, Sara Evans, Hank Williams Jr., Scotty McCreery and The Band Perry will be taking the stage during the two day concert event. It's set for June 21st and 22nd at Heritage Park in Cullman.

The event is partially owned by Evans, who promises more big name acts will be announced in the weeks leading up to the show.

Ticket prices are considerably higher than last year, a move that organizers say is needed to guarantee such big name acts. A one day general-admission ticket is $30, and a general admission weekend pass is $49. More expensive ticket packages come with VIP parking, private restrooms, and VIP viewing areas. They cost between $80 and $169. Children 5 years of age and under get in free.

Tickets are scheduled to go on sale at 10 a.m. on March 29. They will be available online at
