Hair Nation announces set times for Irvine Meadows festival
Sirius XM — Sunset Strip in the 1980s – was there ever a more debaucherous time and place? Rock and roll was larger than life and every show was a party. Now — for one night only — you can travel back in time to that land of excess at SiriusXM’s Hair Nation Festival with performances by Vince Neil, Bret Michaels, Yngwie Malmsteen Kix, Slaughter, Lita Ford, Vixen, Britny Fox, BulletBoys, Faster Pussycat, LA Guns’ Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns, Loudness, Junkyard, Vain, Tuff, Bang Tango, Odin, Gabbie Rae, and Circus of Power.
The festival will be hosted by Hair Nation (Ch. 39)’s Eddie Trunk, who is excited to emcee the first-ever Hair Nation mini-fest.
“As a lifelong fan, friend and supporter of so many of these bands on radio and TV it’s great to see them have their own event to celebrate their decades of great music,” the Trunk Nation host said.
Vince Neil says he plans to “pull out all the stops” at the festival, which he calls a “big kickass event.”
“I can’t wait to perform back in Southern California where it all started for me,” Neil said. “What a great lineup, in a great venue. “
SiriusXM will broadcast performances, as well as backstage interviews with artists, from SiriusXM’s Hair Nation Festival on SiriusXM’s Hair Nation channel, via satellite on channel 39 and through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. The broadcast will air the weekend of September 24.
