AXS TV, the premier destination for classic rock programming, has greenlit a new eight-episode music series, "Trunkfest With Eddie Trunk", premiering in 2018. Hosted by beloved music historian and TV and radio host Eddie Trunk, the program gives viewers the ultimate front row seat to some of the nation's biggest music festivals as Trunk travels across the country interviewing bands, visiting booths, sampling festival cuisine, and mingling with the dedicated music fans that help make these festivals so legendary.

Highlights include immersive trips to South Dakota's world-famous Sturgis Buffalo Chip music festival, featuring an interview with southern rock superstar George Thorogood; "The Festival To End All Festivals" Kaaboo in Del Mar, California, where Eddie samples a sizzling celebrity chef experience; the hard rock and heavy metal celebration Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, Kentucky, featuring an interview with shock rock icons Rob Zombie and John 5; and the eclectic Halloween weekend Voodoo festival in New Orleans, Louisiana, which will begin filming this weekend and boasts an exclusive interview with groundbreaking RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello. More featured festivals will be announced at a later date.

"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. "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."

"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."




"Trunkfest" is produced in-house by AXS TV. Evan Haiman serves as executive producer and the series is produced by Stephen Stormer.

Cool. Trunk seems to have good access to artists, so it should be a good show. I can only take him in limited amounts though.

I wish AXS would bring back That Metal Show. I assume VH-1 wants too much money to let him take the show somewhere else, or else it would have already happened. I don't know why he couldn't just title it differently but similarly, sort of like what David Letterman did when he left NBC's Late Night to start CBS's Late Show.

"an interview with southern rock superstar George Thorogood"

I chuckled when I first read that line because I don't think of him as southern rock, more as retro blues. However, he sounds as southern rocky as ZZ Top, I guess, and they get lumped into that category too sometimes.

And born and raised in Delaware, and started the Destroyers there with Delawareans.
