Demolition derbies and hard rock music will unite at a new festival called Rock'n Derby. The three-day extravaganza will offer headlining sets from Five Finger Death Punch, Halestorm and Shinedown. Heavy music and demolition derbies make a good fit, right?

Additional artists confirmed for the debut Rock'n Derby are Megadeth, Sixx:A.M., Wolfmother, Clutch, Scott Stapp, Trivium, Anthrax, Sevendust, Pop Evil and Dokken, among others. More bands will be announced as the event draws closer.

Aside from the music, Rock'n Derby will also offer Game Changer Wrestling, camping spots, food vendors at the Village of Barns and Brews and, of course, the Demolition Derby.

Rock'n Derby will take place May 20 through 22, 2016, in Schaghticoke, New York, close to Albany.
