Halestorm + The Used Join 2016 Rock Carnival
Ladies and gents, step right up! Halestorm and The Used are the latest additions to the already stellar lineup for the second annual Rock Carnival. The event is set to take place the weekend of Sept. 30-Oct. 2, and both Halestorm and The Used will perform on the final day.
Halestorm will be the headliner for Sunday, Oct. 2, with support from The Used, 10 Years, Bullet Boys, Tom Keifer, Citizen Zero, Doro, Jim Breuer and the Loud & Rowdy, Legion, Life of Agony, River Monsters, Sebastian Bach and Trixter.
"SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY! We can't wait to bring the rock n' roll madness with all of our Freaks at the second annual Rock Carnival," state Halestorm, who humorously add, "We just really want to watch the pig racing! See you there!"
Meanwhile, The Used's frontman Bert McCracken adds, "We look forward to heading back to New Jersey for the Rock Carnival to play for those diehard Used fans. See you all in October!"
"Rock Carnival is very excited to finally announce Halestorm, The Used and the others who will help round out this year's line-up," states Rock Carnival producer John D'Esposito. "The festival outlined a plan that would deliver famous classic rock Friday, strong family friendly rock packaging Saturday and to close Sunday with active radio rock headliner. We put a strong emphasis on stacking the line up with New Jersey and immediate area acts who have had a long tradition of playing the infamous Jersey rock scene over years. Horns in the air, let's get ready to rock!"
In addition to the Sunday lineup, music fans can look forward to Alice Cooper headlining the Friday festivities, with support from Clutch, Zakk Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, Almost Queen, Alive! '75, Kyng and many more. The Saturday bill finds Twisted Sister closing out the night after acts like Daughtry, Ace Frehley, American Angel, Cycle of Pain, Four By Fate, Fuel, Jackyl, Jester, Killcode, Monster Magnet, Overkill, Punky Meadows, Shaman's Harvest, Texas Hippie Coalition and Zebra get their stage time.
