Happy 65th, Todd Rundgren!

The rocker is bringing back the Toddstock festival for a second edition to mark his 65th birthday. This time around, Todd Rundgren’s b-day party takes place in Louisiana’s historic plantation country, between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Toddstock II v6.5 kicks off June 17 and concludes on Rundgren’s birthday, June 22. The six-day bash is being held at White Castle’s 22-acre Nottoway Plantation & Resort, which the musician’s PR folks point out is the South’s largest remaining antebellum mansion.

The inaugural Toddstock festival took place in 2008 on Rundgren’s property in Kauai to celebrate his big 6-0.

“By popular demand, the summer solstice bacchanal known as Toddstock will descend like locusts upon the unsuspecting landscape,” says Rundgren. “This year, we target an innocent Louisiana plantation a stone’s throw from New Orleans. Come while the week away in the heart of Dixie.”

Rundgren adds that anything goes with Toddstock II.

“We’re hoping that our more centralized location will allow ‘Stockers to contribute infrastructure of their own devising – tents are cool, but kissing booths are cooler! Bring your own sushi bar! Go nuts!”

If tent camping isn’t your thing, you can choose to stay in one of Nottoway’s renovated mansion rooms or one of the deluxe hotel rooms of the Cottages and Carriage House.

In addition to banging the drum all day with Rundgren, fans can enjoy the ground’s swimming pools and cabanas, tennis courts and fitness center, as well as take part in optional excursions such as plantation tours, swampboat tours, riverboat tours, golf and more.
