Who put on the best sets at the first annual New Jersey event? Click to find out!

1 / 9

Stone Temple Pilots

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

Clark, New Jersey hosted the first ever Food Truck and Rock Carnival this weekend. We were there to document all the sights and sounds, but like any fest some acts stood out more than others. Check out the best of the best performances here!

Any excuse to see Linkin Park's Chester Bennington on stage is worth exploring. He's taken the place of Scott Weiland fronting Stone Temple Pilots and we are not complaining. 

2 / 9

Skillet

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

It's probably hard to breakout a cello and a violin and still remain one of the heaviest bands at a mostly metal fest, but Skillet has mastered the art. Kudos to them!

3 / 9

Godsmack

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

Godsmack closed out night two of the fest, drawing the biggest crowd with the biggest attitude. Their songs deal with domination and destruction, and that air of machismo was felt throughout the park.

4 / 9

Anthrax

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

New Jersey acts as a second home to thrash icons Anthrax, so seeming them live here felt extraordinarily powerful. Oh, and Scott Ian is still a god. Trust us.

5 / 9

Slash

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

How could Slash not be on this list? The guitar god rocked through some of his best solo material but made sure to keep the Guns N' Roses fans in the audience happy. His set clocked in at about an hour and half, and truth be told: We would've watched him all night.

6 / 9

Puddle of Mudd

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

The post-grunge icons reminded us just why we love their "Blurry" tunes on day one of the fest. Puddle Of Mudd dominated the main stage as the sun set over the park in New Jersey...if only songs of adolescent angst could be romantic!

7 / 9

Three Days Grace

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

You probably haven't lived until you've heard "I Hate Everything About You" live with thousands of drunken strangers. Probably.

8 / 9

Black Label Society

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

They don't call him Zakk Wylde for anything! Black Label Society boasted of the most leather on stage and off it, their chugging tunes only served to mirror their badass attitude. Rock on!

9 / 9

Sevendust

Jatnna Nunez for Fuse

No one does metal like Atlanta, and no one does Atlanta metal like Sevendust. Their headlining spot day one was something to remember...it's no wonder we counted a whopping 19 Sevendust shirts before the band even took the stage. Dedication!
