Music lovers everywhere can get ready to grab a front row seat to some of the most popular music festivals across the country with AXS TV’s exciting new original series, “Trunkfest with Eddie Trunk,” coming in 2018. Hard rock radio and TV guru Eddie Trunk will lead viewers on a cross-country journey to catch a glimpse at some of the hottest music festivals in the land on the upcoming eight-part series.
Trunk will grant you an up close and personal look at the artists, food, venues, and fanfare at major music festivals as he travels the country to interview bands, sample the food and rock out with the masses. Some of the stops planned for the upcoming “Trunkfest” inaugural season include chatting with southern rock icon George Thorogood at South Dakota’s Sturgiss Buffalo Chip Music Festival. He’ll also visit the chef at Kaaboo in Del Mar, California, get immersed in heavy metal at Louisville’s Louder Than Life Festival, where he’ll talk to Rob Zombie and John 5, as well as an electric Halloween weekend hangout at Voodoo Festival in New Orleans, where Trunk will meet up with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello.
AXS TV is stoked to give viewers this exclusive, all-access pass to these renowned American rock-fests, as the newest addition to its original series lineup. “With his deep passion and impressive encyclopedic knowledge of all things music, we’re thrilled to be back in business with Eddie Trunk, who previously was the host of our Reel To Real rock doc block,” said Evan Haiman, vice president of music programming and production, AXS TV in a press release. “Now we are teaming with him once again for this exciting new series, giving viewers the ultimate music festival experience as we show them what it’s like to attend these iconic events from the perspective of a hardcore music connoisseur.”
Putting Eddie Trunk into these high-octane rock environments, talking to legendary artists and giving fans a unique inside look at these huge music fests should be a treat for diehard fans across multiple genres. Trunk is also pumped to resume his AXS TV partnership.
“I’ve had a great experience working with the team at AXS TV in the past, and I look forward to working with them once again on this new series,” Trunk said. “I am truly psyched to take viewers on this epic journey, as we head across the U.S. to experience all of the elements that come together to make these festivals so memorable. I really think viewers are going to enjoy this wide-ranging look at not just the music, but the overall experiences that each festival has to offer.”
