Music historian Eddie Trunk takes viewers on an immersive journey through some of the country's biggest rock festivals and music events, as the popular AXS TV original series "TrunkFest" returns for season two — premiering Sunday, July 7 at 9:30 p.m. ET / 6:30 p.m. PT. "TrunkFest" airs as part of the Network's Sunday Night Rocks lineup, which also includes the star-studded talk-and-rock series "Rock & Roll Road Trip With Sammy Hagar" at 8 p.m. ET; the hilarious and heartfelt reality series "Real Money", starring Eddie Money and his family.
"TrunkFest" Season Two kicks off on July 7 with a trip down to sunny southern California for a day of classic rock and classic rides at Sammy Hagar's High Tide Beach Party & Car Show. While there, Eddie Trunk takes in the sights and sounds of the summer's ultimate beach bash, and sits down with a slate of rock n' roll icons such as Eddie Money, Vince Neil, REO SPEEDWAGON, and the Red Rocker himself, Sammy Hagar.
Trunk has also been added to this summer's lineup of Sammy Hagar's High Tide Beach Party on September 28 and 29 in Huntington Beach, California.

"One of the things I'm really excited about with Season Two is the growth and variety of events and experiences we cover. I am literally learning and experiencing many things right along with the audience for the first time," said Trunk. "It's been awesome and at times an education for sure!"
"The response to 'TrunkFest''s first season from our viewers was incredible. Our audience loved Trunk's inside views of festivals and how he experienced them firsthand," said Evan Haiman, AXS TV's vice president of music programming and production. "We're proud to give our viewers even more epic interviews and in-depth festival coverage in season two. Eddie Trunk is beloved by fans and artists, alike, and his knowledge of music is unparalleled — I couldn't think of a better host, or a better series, to serve as one of the cornerstones for our new Sunday Night Rocks block."
