METALLICA to host their own festival in June

1 min read

Following several cryptic announcements on its Facebook page, METALLICA went on live stream today to say that the band will be hosting its very own music fest this year in New Jersey.

“Orion Fest,” the name of the new music festival, will be hosted in Atlantic City on June 23rd and 24th.

The event will feature 22 artists, comedy and lifestyle elements. More than just music, the festival will also showcase the band’s individual interests – and allow fans to interact directly with each of the band members. “Orion Fest” will be held at the decomissioned airstrip Bader Field and was chosen because of the equidistant nature of it from L.A. and Europe, and the proximity to Atlantic City lodging. Metallica will be headlining both dates.

Also playing at the festival will be:
Arctic Monkeys
Avenged Sevenfold
Modest Mouse
The Gaslight Anthem
Cage the Elephant
Fucked Up
Best Coast
Hot Snakes
Titus Andronicus
Gary Clark Jr.
Roky Erickson
The Black Angels
The Sword
A Place to Bury Strangers
