Metallica, Kid Rock, 3EB Rev Up For Rockfest 2000

Metallica, Kid Rock, Stone Temple Pilots, and Third Eye Blind are among the artists who will be putting their musical pedals to the metal at the Chicago Motor Speedway on July 22 for the Rockfest 2000 concert.

The Hard Rock Café and Oldsmobile are sponsoring the all-day festival, which will also include sets from Barenaked Ladies, The Tragically Hip, Tonic, Guster, Nine Days, and Veruca Salt will also play Rockfest 2000.

More than 130,000 people convened on the Atlanta Motor Speedway for last year's concert, which featured The Offspring, Sugar Ray, Everlast, Live, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and Collective Soul, among others. The inaugural Hard Rock Café Rockfest was held in Dallas in 1998.

In addition to the music, the 2000 Rockfest will also feature a midway entertainment zone with extreme sports demonstrations and, of course, a special on-site, traveling version of the Hard Rock Café.
