A “Schweet” Lineup of 80’s Rock Tribute Bands to “Like, Totally Kill It” at the 2nd Annual Junction 45 – Rock Music Festival on Saturday, August 22th, 2020 at Washington County Fair Park in West Bend
West Bend: As the Summer concert season wraps up and Fall approaches Junction 45 Rock Music Festival will once again be paying tribute to the very best 80’s rock bands we saw on MTV and live in concert back in the day. Join us on Saturday, August 22th, 2020 at Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center’s Silver Lining Amphitheater where we’ll kick it up a notch delivering some of the best Live 80’s rock music to Southeastern Wisconsin featuring HAIRBALL with special guests Battery: Masters of Metallica and Nightrain: the Guns ‘n Roses Experience.
They’re back! In their 20th year of rocking hundreds of thousands of people across the country, Hairball is more than just a band – and certainly more than a tribute band! They are a Rock & Roll experience you won’t forget. A band puts on a concert – Hairball puts on an event! The lights, sound, video screens, smoke, fire, blood, bombs, confetti, spiders, snakes & monsters (oh my) and the screaming hordes of rabid Hairball fans create an event – an event that hits you so hard, it’ll take a few days to recover! Rock & Roll will NEVER die!!! Van Halen, KISS, Motley Crue, Queen, Journey, and Aerosmith are but a few of the acts fans will see brought to life. The Hairball stage becomes an entirely new rock concert that will blow your mind countless times throughout the night.
Also returning for a second year is Battery: Masters of Metallica – voted #1 Metallica tribute band by MTV. If you are a fan of Metallica, you must see Battery. Touring 52 weeks a year throughout the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Worldwide, they lash out the action in near-perfect Metallica style with all the energy, headbanging & musical precision that make Metallica the best metal band of all time!! Throw in lots of hair, some special Metallica lighting effects, strobes, fog, and more.
With Guns ‘n Roses’ 2012 induction into Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, Guns ‘n Roses music & popularity keeps climbing each day to new generations and faithful fans in mass numbers.
New this year, we will feature Nightrain: The Guns ‘n Roses Tribute Experience. NIGHTRAIN’S Tribute show to Guns ‘n Roses has been taking the US by storm. Performances have ranged from The House of Blues, MTVs Famous Club LaVela, The FC Dallas Stadium, to this year’s Carolina Rebellion, sharing the bill with Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, & Buckcherry to name a few. Nightrain continues to make their mark in today’s ever-growing Tribute Market.
“We are very excited to feature this amazing lineup of powerhouse 80’s rock tribute bands for Junction 45. We are thrilled to offer more events in addition to the annual County Fair that showcase the Silver Lining Amphitheater; it is an asset not only to Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center, but to the entire Washington County community.” said Kellie Boone, Executive Director of Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center.
