Five Festivals, Ten Shows

Oct 10, 2019

You know we love a challenge, so when Danny Wimmer Presents invited us to headline all five of their Spring/Fall U.S. rock festivals, that sounded like great fun. But play two separate sets on two nights in the same weekend? Definitely count us in! In another Metallica first, we’ll be playing at all five of the Wimmer rock festivals in 2020 with two separate sets, one on Friday night, one on Sunday night.

These dates will be our only U.S. festival shows next year:

  • May 1-3 - Epicenter at its new location at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC
  • May 8-10 - Welcome To Rockville at its new location at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, FL
  • May 15-17 - Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, OH
  • September 18-20 - Louder Than Life at Highland Festival Grounds at KY Expo Center in Louisville, KY
