Basis Entertainment has announced the full lineup for the inaugural Beach Town Music Festival, held at Indian River County Fairgrounds on October 7-8 in Vero Beach, FL.

Tickets and VIP packages can be purchased now online at www.beachtownfestival.com. Set among the gracious seaside hamlet, the two-day music festival will feature legendary rocker and Poison front man, Bret Michaels, on Friday, October 7. Rising to fame as the front man of Poison, one of rock’s most iconic and enduring bands, he helped define the rock-n-roll scene on the Sunset Strip. Michaels turned his passion for music into a multi-faceted brand that encompasses record breaking touring sales, Reality TV stardom, legendary songs that have sold over 32 million records, product endorsements as well as being a devoted philanthropist, all supported and followed by three generations of loyal fans.
When this multi-talented performer is not touring he can be found both in front of and behind the camera as a director, producer and a reality TV superstar. His first foray into reality TV brought the record-breaking “Rock of Love with Bret Michaels” franchise to VH1, one of the most successful shows in the network’s history, shattering weekly rating records during its run. Following three successful seasons of the show, he teamed up with VH1 for the docu-series “Life As I Know It” setting even more records. Bret has also starred in and won Donald Trump’s NBC hit, “Celebrity Apprentice”. Coming into the show as the underdog, his tenacity and business sense helped him win the series, raising well over $300,000 for Diabetes research. Michaels latest television endeavor, “Rock My RV with Bret Michaels” saw Michaels and his team revamping and redesigning dilapidated RV’s in true rock star form and style.
Other rock acts to join Michaels on Friday night include: Gin Blossoms, Edwin McCain, and LA Guns.
