These festivities go on continuously from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday, June 3 and Saturday, June 4.

They have been bringing the pop into the punk and into metal creating musical magic that people will always recognize with their classic hits like “I Want You to Want Me,” “Surrender” and “The Flame.” A cool little fact about Cheap Trick is that they are the musical geniuses behind the theme song of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report show.
