Eric will be performing during Metallica's brand new Orion Music + More Festival, which is an event that revolves around music, arts and lifestyle founded and headlined by the band. It will take place June 23rd and 24th in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
"We've had the idea of doing our own lifestyle festival with lots of diverse music and fun and games for years," said Lars Ulrich. "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. After the most incredible of weeks ever in December 2011 celebrating our 30th anniversary at the Fillmore in San Francisco, CA, bringing the spirit of that week, the looseness of that week, the possibilities of that week, the fan interactive elements of that week, and the (fill in your own blank here) of that week to a festival setting is so exciting we can hardly contain ourselves."
The festival will feature numerous live music stages along with a lifestyle element that will reflect each of Metallica's ban members' personal interests. It will cover almost all genres from punk to country and will include artists such as Eric himself, Arctic Monkeys, Avenged Sevenfold, Modest Mouse, The Gaslight Anthem, Cage The Elephant, Fucked Up, Best Coast, Hot Snakes, Titus Andronicus, Gary Clark Jr., Lucero, Roky Erickson, The Black Angels, The Sword, Liturgy, and more.
