Metallica have launched their own festival in the States, and booked themselves, Arctic Monkeys, Fucked Up, Modest Mouse and A Place To Bury Strangers to perform.
Orion Music and More will take place in Atlantic City from 23-24 June, with the metallers headlining both dates, naturally.
They will perform The Black Album on night one, followed by Ride The Lightning on night two.
Said Mr Lars Ulrich: "We've had the idea of doing our own lifestyle festival with lots of diverse music and fun and games for years. Finally this year all the practical ducks lined up in a row, and we are beyond psyched to bring Orion to our fans, friends and the curious."
