Trunk highlights festivals across the country
Music historian Eddie Trunk takes viewers on an immersive journey through some of the country’s biggest rock festivals and music events, as the popular AXS TV original series TrunkFest returns for season two — premiering Sunday, July 7th at 9:30 pm ET/6:30 pm PT. TrunkFest airs as part of the Network’s Sunday Night Rocks lineup, which also includes the star-studded talk-and-rock series Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar at 8 pm ET; the hilarious and heartfelt reality series Real Money, starring Eddie Money and his family.
TrunkFest Season Two kicks off on July 7th with a trip down to sunny southern California for a day of classic rock and classic rides at Sammy Hagar’s High Tide Beach Party And Car Show. While there, Eddie Trunk takes in the sights and sounds of the summer’s ultimate beach bash, and sits down with a slate of rock n’ roll icons such as Eddie Money, Vince Neil, REO Speedwagon, and the Red Rocker himself, Sammy Hagar.
Trunk has also been added to this summer’s lineup of Sammy Hagar’s High Tide Beach Party on September 28th and 29th in Huntington Beach, CA.
“One of the things I’m really excited about with Season Two is the growth and variety of events and experiences we cover. I am literally learning and experiencing many things right along with the audience for the first time,” states Trunk. “It’s been awesome and at times an education for sure!”
“The response to TrunkFest’s first season from our viewers was incredible. Our audience loved Trunk’s inside views of festivals and how he experienced them firsthand,” says Evan Haiman, AXS TV’s Vice President of Music Programming and Production. “We’re proud to give our viewers even more epic interviews and in-depth festival coverage in season two. Eddie Trunk is beloved by fans and artists, alike, and his knowledge of music is unparalleled—I couldn’t think of a better host, or a better series, to serve as one of the cornerstones for our new Sunday Night Rocks block.”
Also during the season, Trunk boards the Monsters Of Rock Cruise to sail the high seas with Teslaand Extreme (July 14th); saddles up for a Country Jam weekend packed with tricked-out RVs and trailers, and interviews with country stars Jon Pardi and Craig Campbell (July 21st); chills out at Vail Snow Days with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and hits the slopes on a ski-lift with talented rock progeny Devon Allman and Duane Betts (July 28th); lives the life of a Super VIP at the Hangout Music Festival, joining Judah & The Lion and lovelytheband on the Gulf Shores (August 4th); and heads to the world-famous NAMM festival to talk with six-string superstars Dave Amato and Vivian Campbell, and check out the latest top-of-the-line music gear (August 11th).
