REO SPEEDWAGON, PAT BENATAR and BUCKCHERRY have been added to the Moondance Jam schedule for 2010, joining the previously-announced LYNYRD SKYNYRD, who will headline the final night of this year's festival.

Now the country's largest classic rock festival, this year's event will take place July 14-17, 2010 in Walker, Minnesota.

REO SPEEDWAGON returns to Walker as the 30th anniversary of its classic "Hi Infidelity" album approaches later this year. The band still plays many of the hits from that iconic record along with its other classics.

BENATAR, with husband Neil Giraldo on guitar and original drummer Myron Grombacher now back in the band, has been playing steadily over the years with a greatest hits set that satisfies even the most ardent fans.

BUCKCHERRY makes its first Walker appearance with its brand of sleazy rock slotting perfectly with the classic rock stars from the '70s and '80s who usually appear here.

Tickets are now available in a variety of packages. Concert goers can purchase Rockstar All Access, three-day VIP, three-day general admission, weekend packages and single day admission, as well as camping sites and parking passes by contacting the Jam office in Walker.

An official announcement concerning the entire festival lineup is due sometime later this month. Expect 15 bands to pack the main stage over three days and many more side stage acts to be added in the coming months.

The Moondance Jam has been held at the same location in Walker since 1992. This year marks the 19th edition of the festival, which was started by resident Bill Bieloh. The Moondance Jam and its sister festival, Moondance Jamming Country Fest, help bring thousands of music fans to the Walker area every summer. Its bucolic location, situated near a huge lake on a site located three hours northwest of Minneapolis, houses thousands of camping sites during the festivals, and has been cited by many as to why they return year after year to Walker for the shows.

Tickets are available now at www.moondancejam.com or by calling 1-877-MOONJAM.
