“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:
The Gaslight Anthem
Cage the Elephant
Gary Clark Jr.
The Black Angels
A Place to Bury Strangers
