Joe Litvag (AEG LIVE Co-executive producer) stated, "The first year of NORTHERN INVASION event was everything the organizers hoped it would be, and then some. The amazing rock fans of the upper MIDWEST came out in full force, and the response was so overwhelmingly positive that we just had to be more extensive!"
Litvag added, "The production got two full days in 2016's NORTHERN INVASION event with over 40 bands to perform, more stages, more camping, new VIP amenities, and an upgraded food experience. The event is turning into something really special up North, and we've got the loyal rock audience to thank for it."
