Had so much fun. The bands that played were awesome. Food and drinks were a little expensive. Some of the drinks were also a little hot. But they had plenty of shade so you could cool down. Overall had a great time and would love to come back.

In general, we had an incredible 2 day experience for Welcome to Rockville. It was my first time and I will go again!
Liked: Location was very easy to find and get to; parking was a challenge, but not unexpected. Being located on the water was perfect in the hot spring day, providing a steady breeze most of the time.
Disliked: Water supply - it was a very HOT day that day. There were lines to get to a water fountain, of which, I only saw one in my wanderings. Security and park personnel had to cordon off an area where fans had tried to turn on water pipes. Rumors were running around stating that vendors were running out of water. The portable wash stations were running out of water (in most areas) between 5 and 6 both days. My guess is that the EMT staff were most likely dealing with fans with heat exhaustion and dehydration most of the days. VIP entrances to stage areas, if possible, would be better located to areas that the GA fans would not be trying to watch the concert. At the Lefty and Righty stages, the entrance was right by the Monster booth set up. We accidentally ended up in that area and it definitely appeared a different location to enter the area would have been more efficient and less distracting, maybe over and behind the Jack Daniel's tent.
I hope the next venue be better.
Liked: The concert.
Disliked: Too much dirt and not enough parking.

We will return next year; we had a ball; the DJ was excellent - he kept everyone ready to dance.
Liked: Plenty of food and drinks to choose from.
Disliked: No walkways to make it easy to go to the bathroom in general admission section; vendors walking around selling water would have been nice.
Liked: Amazing venue for a rock festival.
Perfect venue for the Welcome to Rockville Festival; loved that lodging was near to water taxi services; loved it.
Liked: Nice location.
