Metallica Add Suicidal Tendencies, Sepultura + More Acts to Orion Lineup
Metallica's Orion Music + More Festival already featured an incredibly diverse lineup when it was initially announced, but now metal fans are sure to raise their horns in response to some noteworthy new additions to the bill.
Not only has Orion announced a total of 11 new acts, they've added an entire new stage to the festival, the Damage Inc. punk / thrash stage. Heavy hitters recently added to the bill include legendary hardcore punk band Suicidal Tendencies and Brazilian metal icons Sepultura. Other acts to rock the Damage Inc. stage include Torche, Red Fang, Kyng, Landmine Marathon, Black Tusk and Thy Will Be Done.
More acts have also been added to the main stage, including Eric Church, Soul Rebels, Wooden Shjips and former Saturday Night Live comic Jim Breuer.
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich recently spoke about the diversity of the Orion Festival with Atlantic City Weekly. "[The] type of thing we wanted to do was more about variety and giving people a sense of discovery — where people might walk away and think something’s really cool."
Metallica's Orion Festival is set to invade Atlantic City, N.J. on June 23-24. Head over to the official Orion website for more info and ticket information.
