Before their performance at California’s Power Trip, AC/DC announced that veteran drummer Matt Laug will join them. Laug, with a rich history of playing for Alice Cooper, Slash’s Snakepit, and Alanis Morissette, will be behind the drums.
The inaugural Power Trip is scheduled from October 6 to 8 at Indio’s Empire Polo Grounds. A spectacular lineup featuring Metallica, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Tool, Guns N’ Roses, and initially Ozzy Osbourne awaits. However, on July 11, news broke that Judas Priest would replace Ozzy. Power Trip is an event by Goldenvoice, the organizers behind renowned festivals like Coachella and Stagecoach.
For those attending, a variety of camping choices are offered, ranging from Car & Tent Camping to exclusive lodge/tent accommodations and RV spots. All campers can access amenities and activities.
