In honor of the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, this year's event will also feature guest speakers who survived the attacks. Ret. Navy Capt. Tom Joyce, who survived the attack on the Pentagon, and Sujo John, who worked on the 81st floor of the North Tower in New York City's World Trade Center, will share their inspirational stories about how their faith helped guide them through that tragic time.

Rock the Universe guests will also get to experience an all-new fan zone, featuring autograph sessions with performing acts, band merchandise, and a first-ever New Artists' Stage where they can enjoy live performances by three emerging artists: former American Idol contestant Jason Castro, for King & Country, and Dara Maclean.
