Plan Your Gettysburg Trip

Gettysburg Rocks

Gettysburg Rocks is the brainchild of local musician, music promoter and radio personality Rob Simon (aka Bald Rob). The original concept for this multiple venue festival in the town of Gettysburg was just an idea until Rob’s daughter Ashley approached him to help her with a fundraiser for Penn State Mont Alto’s THON group. During the course of an 11-week period the first Gettysburg Rocks event was planned, created and implemented and was an immediate success. The first event was held on the weekend of February 7th and 8th, 2014 and included 130 live bands across 12 venues in Gettysburg. The event raised over $14,000 for The Four Diamonds Fund. After the success of the first event, Rob was approached by several of the participating venues to create a warm weather version of the popular festival and the August event was created. Gettysburg Rocks is now a bi-annual music festival and fundraiser for Four Diamonds. Since the creation of Gettysburg Rocks the event has raised over $80,000 for Four Diamonds.
This year’s event will feature more than 160 performances at 14 venues over three days.
