The festival billing is shaping up as follows:

THE RODS (Headliner)

THE RODS was scheduled to shoot its very first HD-DVD at the legendary The Haunt nightclub in Ithaca, New York on May 16. This performance was in support of THE RODS' forthcoming CD, "Vengeance", which features Ronnie James Dio's vocals on selected tracks. The show was also a precursor to the band's appearance at Headbangers Open Air in Germany.

THE RODS' lineup includes Feinstein on guitar/vocals, Garry Bordonaro on bass and Carl Canedy on drums.
