There were an estimated 100,000 people (about 30,000 per day) at the first annual Rocklahoma held in 2007.[1] The Third Annual Rocklahoma had over seventy bands on four stages, including favorites from previous Rocklahoma festivals, Beautiful Creatures, LA Guns featuring Tracii Gun, Bang Tango, Lillian Axe, Gypsy Pistoleros and Faster Pussycat. Included on the side stages are bands from all over Europe. Playboy and Rolling Stone in 2008 called Rocklahoma one of the top festivals that should not be missed.

On December 1, 2009, Rocklahoma's organizers announced an affiliation with concert promoter AEG Live to revamp the festival's format. The 2010 festival was moved to Memorial Day weekend and included more current artists as well as very few of the 1980s-era classic rock and metal bands for which the festival has been known.[5]
