Live Nation, President Booking, Los Angeles, Rich Best says: "We're excited to be able to bring some of the defining rock artists of the '80s and '90s back to the outdoor amphitheatre setting of Irvine Meadows for the second year in a row."

John Reese of SGE adds: "Rock fans traveled from around the country and around the world for last year's festival, so it was clear that there was a demand for the return of the music of Hair Nation. These bands helped define an era when rock and roll was larger than life, and every show was a party. Bringing so many of these bands together at one festival for as low as $15 is a great value for fans."
