Who can forget the reticent Ally (Lady Gaga) stepping onto the stage with Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) for the first time in "A Star Is Born"? Or Rami Malek channeling Freddie Mercury's iconic Live Aid performance in "Bohemian Rhapsody"? For those who dream about being a rock star performing in front of thousands of adoring fans, the Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp has been delivering the experience for more than two decades.

Special guest headliners Joe Perry (Aerosmith), Vince Neil (Motley Crue) and Lou Gramm (Foreigner) will return to the Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas June 27 to 30.

"There's no doubt arena shows are exciting, but you don't get that up close and personal kind of vibe, and that's what rock 'n' roll is all about for me," Perry said.

Campers of all skill levels will be placed in bands fronted by rock star counselors. They will receive instruction, participate in jam sessions and question-and-answer sessions and attend master classes. Drum kits, amplifiers and speakers are provided, but campers may bring their own equipment. All the fun work will conclude in a live performance with Gramm at the Hard Rock's Vinyl venue.

Music industry veteran David Fishof created Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp in 1997 to provide the ultimate rock star experience for musicians and vocalists. Past rock star guests have included Jeff Beck, Roger Daltrey, Def Leppard, Bret Michaels, Gene Simmons, Slash, George Thorogood, Steven Tyler and Brian Wilson.
