Rock Icon Gene Simmons, co-founder of KISS, America’s #1 Gold Record Award Winning Group of All Time, announced today that he has joined forces with Chuck Varabioff, a Canadian-based producer, to launch Titans of Rock, a classic rock festival series, in Canada and the United States. The first festival is set to take place in Grand Forks, British Columbia August 6-8, 2020.
The preliminary line up will be announced on January 15, 2020 and will include legendary rock artists from the United States and Canada.
Tickets are $150 per day or $300 for the weekend and there are several VIP packages available. They are available on-line at TITANS OF ROCK
“I have been working on the Titans of Rock festival concept for many years,” said Simmons. “Our goal is to provide classic rock fans with a one-of-a-kind, immersive, three-day experience featuring legendary names in a venue where they can celebrate their love of rock with other fans.”
Simmons met Varabioff when his Gene Simmons Band performed at CannaFest in 2018. Varabioff produced the event and Simmons saw potential to revamp, rebrand and expand the concept into a series of events that would make it more accessible to fans throughout Canada and the United States.
“While our past events have been extremely successful, with Gene’s active involvement, creative influence and business savvy, combined with the event’s evolution to Titans of Rock, we will offer fans something they can’t find anywhere else,” said Varabioff.
Simmons is set to personally host Titans of Rock in Grand Forks in August.
Varabioff’s previous events included appearances by dozens of notable artists and bands including The Gene Simmons Band, Bret Michaels, Cheap Trick, The Beach Boys, Whitesnake, Loverboy, Vince Neil, Tom Cochrane, Lita Ford and Randy Bachman
