Metallica Create Orion Music + More Festival With Some Interesting Opening Acts [VIDEO]

Metallica have announced their own festival. Calling it the Orion Music + More festival it all goes down June 23-24 in New Jersey. Why not their home town of San Fransisco? Don’t ask me. They also chose some fairly random openers for both days. Some bands make perfect sense and some are just out there. Here’s the line-up of other acts for the 2 day fest.

Arctic Monkeys
Avenged Sevenfold
Modest Mouse
The Gaslight Anthem
Cage the Elephant
F—ed Up
Best Coast
Hot Snakes
Titus Andronicus
Gary Clark Jr.
Roky Erickson
The Black Angels
The Sword
A Place to Bury Strangers

Obviously some of those bands are well worth the time to see, and the others I’m wondering why you would pay over $100 a ticket for just Metallica.

According to their own new website dedicated to the festival: “Headlining both nights, Metallica will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the ‘Black Album’ by playing it in its entirety on one night AND all of ‘Ride the Lightning’ for the first time ever on the other night! This will be the only North American performances of these albums in 2012.”

Here is their, for some reason 23 minute long, concert announcement.
