Metallica’s Festival Returns For 2013

‘Orion Music + More’ will move to Detroit for its second outing.

Metallica’s music festival ‘Orion Music + More’ is set to return in 2013, moving to a new city.

The metal band originally held the festival in June 2012 in New Jersey, however next year’s event is due to be held in Detroit. During last year’s edition, the band headlined both nights of the festival, as well as inviting the Arctic Monkeys and Modest Mouse to play alongside them.

Drummer Lars Ulrich spoke to Rolling Stone about the festival, saying: ‘I don’t walk around and think they’re all Metallica fans, I think they’re all festival fans, music fans, people out for the experience. I hope our fans are going to be open and supportive of everybody that’s here, and if they’re not, I’m going to find them and kick their ass.’

Metallica are currently working on an album due for release in 2014.
