Today, it has been announced that Danny Wimmer Presents — the largest independent live event producer in the United States — has acquired two landmark music festivals: Rocklahoma and Born & Raised.

Both are acclaimed events that take place at Rockin Red Dirt Ranch in Pryor, Oklahoma and have grown into staples for the summer music festival circuit.

Established in 2007, Rocklahoma has grown to become a cornerstone in the rock music festival circuit, drawing fans from all over the globe to experience its unrivaled rock & roll party atmosphere. Born & Raised has quickly made its mark since its debut in 2021, with a mix of Texas and red dirt country, outlaw, and Americana celebrating honest songwriters with meaningful lyrics. 

Both events became renowned not just for their carefully curated musical lineups, but for offering attendees the opportunity to embrace the music they love together with friends. These destination music experiences offer multiple stages, camping for 20k+ people, and secondary fan experiences — all within the scenic landscapes of Pryor, Oklahoma.

We are thrilled to welcome Rocklahoma and Born & Raised into the DWP family,” said Danny Hayes, CEO of Danny Wimmer Presents. “These festivals have established themselves as premier music festival destinations, and we are committed to elevating their experiences even further. Acquiring them cements DWP as the premiere producer of festivals in the United States. Having Welcome To Rockville, Sonic Temple, Inkcarceration, Louder Than Life, Aftershock and now Rocklahoma reinforces DWP as the definitive leader in rock. Additionally, as DWP continues to grow and expand, Born & Raised fits great into our portfolio by complimenting both Bourbon & Beyond and GoldenSky music festivals.”

Danny Wimmer Presents have confirmed they will continue to work with Pryor Creek Music Festivals, the original creators of Rocklahoma and Born & Raised, with many key stakeholders remaining involved in both events in 2024 and beyond. 

This marks a significant milestone for Rocklahoma and Born & Raised,” expressed Dave Giencke, Founder & Vice President, General Manager of PCMF. “With DWP’s esteemed reputation for curating exceptional music festivals, we are optimistic about the bright future ahead. Though the decision wasn’t made lightly, we believe DWP shares our aspirations for both Rocklahoma and Born & Raised. My wife Sharon and I are committed to remaining actively involved, ensuring our vision and aspirations continue to thrive for years to come. We extend our gratitude to all who have contributed to the success of these events thus far and eagerly anticipate witnessing how DWP will enhance these festivals while honoring their original essence.
