Slated to take place Saturday, Sept. 19 and Sunday, Sept. 20 at Oak Ridge Park in Clark, more than 15,000 Jersey rock fans are expected to attend over the course of the two days. The lineup has yet to be announced, but organizers promise multiple rockers from the ’80s, ’90s and today, along with dozens of area food trucks, amusement rides and a rock-themed vendor village. “It’s going to be like Wayne’s World and it will be affordable,” said promoter John D’Esposito, who added the lineup will include bands that are played on the radio stations WDHA (105.5-FM) and WRAT (95.9-FM).
