While the event is called “Rockitcon”, that does not mean the acoustic Musicians will be left out, nor will those whose influence is not Rock N Roll inspired. Florida is a state with diverse cultures; from Country and Western, Classical, Blues, Reggae, Bluegrass, Jazz, Latin, the Island Sounds of the Caribbean. Rockitcon caters to it all.

Rooms at the Ramada Orlando Celebration Resort and Convention Center are just $79 (includes free hot breakfast buffet) a night if you mention “rockit” when you call for reservations. The reservation line is 1-877-467-7886.
