Plot

Wayne and Garth now do their acclaimed Friday-night TV show in an abandoned doll factory in Aurora. At the end of the broadcast, Wayne, Garth, and his friends, head into the Mirthmobile, and off to an Aerosmith concert. After the band's performance, Wayne and Garth head backstage (thanks to backstage passes), and grovel like they did to Alice Cooper.

That night, Wayne has a dream in which he meets Jim Morrison and a "weird naked Indian", in which Morrison tells Wayne that his destiny is to organize and put on a big concert. Wayne and Garth dub the concert "Waynestock" and get to work. Their early attempts to sign bands and sell tickets fall flat, however, and Wayne wonders if the whole thing was a good idea.

Wayne's girlfriend Cassandra, meanwhile, has a new producer, Bobby Cahn (Christopher Walken), slowly tries to pull her away from Wayne (blocking calls to her in the process) and Illinois. After Wayne admits that he was spying on her, Cassandra breaks off the relationship and hastily gets engaged to Bobby on the rebound. Garth meets a beautiful woman, Honey Hornee (Kim Basinger), at the laundromat, and she quickly ropes him in with her charms. Eventually, it is revealed that Honey is manipulating Garth into killing her ex-husband, and Garth quickly bails on the relationship.

Back in the real world, tickets for Waynestock are finally selling, but no bands have shown up. Wrestling with what to do, Wayne departs the festival grounds so he can find Cassandra, leaving Garth to keep the rowdy crowd in check. In a parody to The Graduate, Wayne travels to a church and breaks up Cassandra's wedding before escaping the ceremony with her. Upon returning to Waynestock, the bands still have not shown up, so he and Garth consult Morrison, who said that no one will come. As in the first film, a series of different endings are shown:

  • They've lost their way, not knowing how to get back, and therefore presumably die of thirst (the sad ending).
  • They drive their car off a cliff (the Thelma & Louise ending).
  • the promised bands arrive and the whole event is a huge success (the happy ending).
