An amazing three-day lineup of wall-to-wall headliners, the Food Truck and Rock Carnival made for a new experience for rockers around.

The festival was spread out over three days, with so much music, food trucks, and fun. This event had everything anyone can ask for including professional wrestling, BMX biking, carnival games and of course music. The carnival area which included a carnival stage was free for anyone and families to enjoy.

With three stages, two main and a Birch Hill stage with some awesome bands from back in the day like TT Quick, Slaughter, Faster Pussycat, Kings X and many more. The main stages had headlining bands both Saturday and Sunday rotating all night long. Slash, Black Label Society, Puddle Of Mudd, Pop Evil, Fit For Rivals, Three Days Grace, Sevendust, Skid Row, Otherwise, Godsmack, Clutch, Skillet, Like A Storm, Stone Temple Pilots, Anthrax, Crobot and more.

Over 20,000 people attended throughout the weekend to hang and chill with their favorite bands and meet-up with friends. They had cabanas for purchase to relax like a rock star between the two main stages and a VIP section with its own bar. There were over 40 food trucks to ravish through with everything from a simple hot dog to lobster rolls.

It was a great weekend for Clark, NJ which has never seen anything like this. There was offsite and onsight parking which seemed to work well. I can’t imagine this not happening again next year, for now we can just wait to see how John D. the creator of this event will top it.
