Orion Music + More Festival 2013: Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers + Deftones to Headline
Metallica have announced the lineup for their second annual Orion Music + More Festival. The action, which takes place on June 8 and 9, has moved northward to Belle Isle in Detroit, Mich. from Atlantic City, NJ, where the first fest was held last summer. The headliners include Metallica (duh!), Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, Deftones and Bassnectar.
Other acts set to perform include Gogol Bordello, Foals, Tomahawk, The Joy Formidable, Death Grips and local Detroit bands The Dirtbombs, DEATH (not the metal band) and Battlecross.
Clearly, the lineup is just as eclectic as it was in 2012, with bands from all genres taking the stages. The first-ever Orion featured the likes of The Arctic Monkeys, Eric Church and Lucero, to name a few non-metal acts.
“Last year’s Orion Music + More Festival was hands down the highlight of the Metallica calendar. A great time was had by all, especially the band members,” said Lars Ulrich in a statement. “The fact that it also resonated with enough of our fans and friends that it warrants another go-around in ’13 is beyond exciting. I can think of no better place than the Motor City, with its rich and diverse history of music, for the second ride on our Orion festival train. Bring it the fuck on!”
Get ready, Detroit Rock City! ‘Tallica and Orion Music + More are on their way to infest your area with quality music and the ultimate summer entertainment experience.
