Bret Michaels now has two claims to fame, as the star of reality TV's Rock of Love and as the lead of singer of '80s glam-rock band Poison. Whether it's Michaels' TV status or music career that the festival organizers are hoping to draw some heads is yet to be determined, but previous headliners include the Who, Steve Miller Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kansas, Night Ranger, and more. Also playing this year's show is the Greg Kihn Band, the Tubes and Dada. (Aaron Carnes)
