Van Halen will headline day one the first ever Stone Festival in Sydney today with a line-up also featuring Aerosmith, Jimmy Barnes and supergroup Kings of Chaos.

Today’s Stone Fest will mark the first time Van Halen have ever played in Australia with David Lee Roth. The band toured Australia in the 90s with the short-lived Gary Cherone line-up but has never played on Australian soil with Roth or his replacement Sammy Hagar.

Both Roth and Hagar have toured Australia previously as solo artists.

Supergroup Kings of Chaos features members of Deep Purple, Guns N’ Roses, Skid Row and Billy Idol’s band.

The Stone Festival at Sydney’s ANZ Stadium is off to a bad start weatherwise with persistent rain over Sydney all night and still at 7am and thunderstorms predicted through-out the day.

Stone Fest is on April 20 and 21 in Sydney.

Saturday’s lineup features Van Halen and Aerosmith with Jimmy Barnes, Kings of Chaos, The Living End, Noiseworks, Buckcherry, Richie Ramone and The Superjesus.

Billy Joel is headline the Sunday show with Icehouse, Guy Sebastian, Lifehouse, Diesel, Mark Seymour, Shannon Noll and Illumination Road.
