“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.”
