Maybe that goofy Aggie Stackhaus actually helped Johnny Dare and 98.9 FM’s Rockfest more than anyone would have imagined….
With all the publicity last year over the mud and rain b.s. it focused a lot of attention on the event in the media. In fact, the mayor even came out and backed 98.9 and Dare. He made it clear that Rockfest stays where it is, no matter what Aggie thinks! She wanted it moved due to all the mud damage.
Yeah sure, Aggie. Let’s see if the new mayor reappoints you to the park board.
Meanwhile, Dare has named the porta potty area "Aggie Ville."
Good one. Wonder if he’ll have Aggie on stage, top off or top on? Yikes!
Rock 98.9 FM program director Bob Edwards has put together an exciting line-up again. Fifteen bands, two stages, more than 50,000 fans, no matter what! And this year there will likely be no rain. In fact, it will be a cooler day and evening than in the past. Which may be a good thing. It can get pretty hot out there, so a temp dip should make it more comfortable.
The Main Stage has seven bands including, Halestorm (the chick in this group is major league hot and talented, I have met her twice at the station and she’s worth the trip), Hinder, Sevendust, Alter Bridge, Papa Roach, Stone Sour, and ending the night, DISTURBED.
The second stage has Evalyn Awake, New Medicine, Art of Dying, Crossfade, Red Line Chemistry, 10 Years, All That Remains and Zack Wilde with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. …Edwards has once again delivered the A team at one event.
As always the show will sell out with over 55,000 tickets available this year. Miore than 50,000 have been sold, but you can still buy tickets at the gate until they are gone. The Rock also keeps this a kinda low dough event with all beverages (including beer) and food priced at just 5 bucks.
Dare will have his usual sidekicks there. Including the girls from the show on HBO CAT HOUSE and Bunny Love (met her on the show today, very cute). And of course, porn star Ron Jeremy with plenty of other Hollywood and West Coast names dropping by.
Rockfest has grown over the years to become one of the biggest outdoor, one-day events anywhere in the nation. It’s gotten so huge Rockfest made the cover of the KC Star’s Preview this week.
KCK will try and get in the game later this year at Kanrocksas with EMINEM and MUSE at the Kansas Speedway. But in my opinion Rockfest is set up better for this type of festival event. The NASCAR track forces the fans to kinda stay away from the stage and makes it hard to walk around. That’s easy at Rockfest.
Yep, you can belly right up to the stage and see the bands and boobies all day and all night.
Rockfest kicks off the KC Summer in a big way.
I usually bring some hotties who seem to get lost in the crowd….hmmmmm….see ya there!
