    Metallica, in conjunction with their friends C3 Presents, announced the lineup for the 2013 Orion Music + More Festival, to be held at Belle Isle in Detroit, Michigan on June 8 and 9.

    Headliners will include Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against and Bassnectar, while the festival will also feature amazing acts including Gogol Bordello, Foals, Tomahawk, The Joy Formidable, Death Grips and local Detroit bands, too.

    "Last year's Orion Music + More Festival was hands down the highlight of the Metallica calendar. A great time was had by all, especially the band members," said drummer Lars Ulrich. "The fact that it also resonated with enough of our fans and friends that it warrants another go-around in '13 is beyond exciting. I can think of no better place than the Motor City, with its rich and diverse history of music, for the second ride on our Orion festival train. Bring it the fuck on!"

    Orion Music + More will feature more than 30 bands across five live music stages plus a lifestyle element that reflects each of Metallica's band members many personal interests. Detroit will see the return of James Hetfield's Custom Car & Motorcycle Show, Kirk Hammett's Crypt, Lars Ulrich's Hit the Lights Film Tent and Robert Trujillo's Vans Vert Ramp alongside the Metallica Museum and many other fan favorite attractions.

    The first-ever Orion Music + More took place in Atlantic City last summer and it was a crazy success. So it's back for a second year, at a new location.

    Who's heading to Detroit for Orion Music + More? What do you think of the lineup? Are you feeling it?
