8-Bit Metal Mondays: Orion Is A Go

Metallica announced all the details for their Orion Music and More festival today, and it's a landslide of info. The fest, happening on June 8th and 9th in my own back yard of Belle Isle, Michigan, is a mix of metal and non-metal acts spanning across five stages. It's gonna also have a ton of side show attractions, like a Metallica museum, a film fest with flicks picked by Lars himself, a car and bike show, and plenty of other exhibits as well.

At it's heart, Orion is about music, and the line-up here is pretty strong. First are the headliners, with Metallica closing the show on the second night and the Red Hot Chili Peppers taking the first night. Then it's a mix of bands like the Deftones, Gogol Bordello, All Shall Perish, Dropkick Murphys, Battlecross, and a wide assortment of other bands. It's a collection for everyone.

Tickets are a bit pricey at $150 for a two day pass and $750 VIP passes for those who feel they have money to burn. However, for Metallica to play a festival in one's own neighborhood, I think I can pass up a few games to see this event.

  1. How did I not know about this? RHCP and Metallica, plus Dropkick Murphys? Now I need to see when it's coming to Dallas. Thanks, riff.
