Metallica announce line-up for Orion Fest
Thrash metal overlords Metallica have announced the line-up to their second annual Orion Music + More festival (June 8th – 9th), which will include James Hetfield's orchestrated Custom Car show, bassist Robert Trujillo's VANS co-op vert ramp and a film tent overseen by tennis loving beatmeister Lars Ulrich.
Whats even radder is the line up; a bat shit crazily good mixture of mathcore, indie prog, stoner metal and garage blues punk. This shows the tastes of these elder statesmen of metal is as diverse as any other independent festival.
Alongside headliners RHCP, Metallica and Rise Against are dispirate acts including Foals, Death Grips, Dillinger Escape Plan, Fu Manchu, Black Flag reunion FLAG, Silversun Pickups as well as shining a spotlight on local (Detroit, MI) bands like Dirtyphonics, Battlecross and the brilliantly monikered DEATH.
