On February 5 Pimlico officials unveiled Preakness InfieldFEST, which will feature a concert with three rock performances, including Rock and Roll Hall of Famers ZZ Top and Grammy-nominated Buckcherry, along with a pro volleyball tournament and an interactive section.
"We are so excited to be part of such an extraordinary event,” Allen said. “To share the stage with rock legends ZZ Top and the incredible Buckcherry is an honor for us. We hope to make our city of Baltimore and the Maryland Jockey Club proud for having us open 2009's InfieldFEST!”
