The event will take place May 7 at Los Encinos State Historic Park in Los Angeles. It will include performances by bands including Dio Disciples, which features former Dio members; Steamroller, featuring former Whitesnake members; and the Van Halen cover band The Atomic Punks, before ending with an “all star band jam full of surprise appearances.”
