Forget what you know about horror conventions and music fests because Rock & Shock is returning for the 12th annual convention  – the only event of its kind in the Northeast. 

We were the first to blend horror conventions with music. So while fans can meet their favorite horror film stars, directors, writers and bands during the day - at night we have well-known national bands performing each night next door at The Palladium…That’s why this event is called Rock & Shock.

The live music takes place at The Palladium and DCU Center. Bands that have played in the past have included Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, Gwar, Misfits, Insane Clown Posse, Meshuggah, Type O Negative, Turbonegro, Mushroomhead, Wednesday 13, God Forbid, DevilDriver, The Haunted and others. 

The convention part takes place next door at DCU Convention Center. It includes horror film actors, directors, make-up artists, costume designers, film makers and distributors, tattoo artists, toy and model makers, costume contests, horror industry professionals and vendors, comic book artists & vendors, film screenings, CD and DVD vendors, appearances and signings with bands playing the Palladium, models and actors in costume, and many other artists and vendors.Visit for more info.
