LOS ANGELES (Top40 Charts)
Metallica, in conjunction with their friends C3 Presents, are pleased to announce the lineup for the 2013 Orion Music
+ More Festival, to be held at Belle Isle in Detroit, MI on June 8 and 9. Headliners will include Metallica, Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Rise Against, Deftones
and Bassnectar, while the festival will also feature amazing acts including Gogol Bordello, Foals, Tomahawk, The Joy Formidable, Death Grips and local Detroit
bands The Dirtbombs, DEATH and BATTLECROSS.
"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. "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 f**k on!"
+ More will feature more than 30 bands across 5 live music stages plus a lifestyle element that reflects each of Metallica's band members' many personal interests. Detroit
will see the return of James
Car & Motorcycle
Show, Kirk Hammett's Crypt, Lars Ulrich's Hit the Lights
Film Tent and Robert Trujillo's Vans Vert Ramp alongside the Metallica
Museum and many other fan favorite attractions.
The inaugural Orion Music
+ More was held in 2012 in Atlantic City, NJ with headliners Metallica, Arctic Monkeys
and Avenged Sevenfold. The 2-day festival was met with praise from both fans and critics alike: "Orion Music
and More Fest was curated to be a tremendously fan-friendly experience," said Rolling Stone. The Village Voice said "the way that the band left its stamp on all aspects of the festival (particular the big-tent aspect of the musical lineup) gave it a charge of intimacy and care that was much more present than at other multi-band, multi-day extravaganzas I've attended in recent years."
