We are thrilled to be back to give you details about the second annual Orion Music + More Festival, our very own two day live music and lifestyle event brought together in the spirit of the legendary festivals around the world that we have been fortunate to be a part of for so many years. We’re very proud and excited to be taking this year’s festival to Detroit, Michigan, a city with a long history of musical diversity that represents what our goal with Orion is – to bring you everything from metal to dance music and a little of what lives in between. And even though we have a new location, you can expect all the fun and games of last year’s Orion to return bigger, badder and crazier with more activities and entertainment for two full days on June 8 and 9, 2013 on the city’s Belle Isle.

This year we are super psyched to have the Red Hot Chili Peppers join us to close the main Orion stage one night while we hit that stage the other. All in all we’ll have over 30 bands across five stages and we’re excited that this year Orion will include an EDM tent headlined by Bassnectar. Check out the full list below of the amazing artists who will be a part of Orion this year, including Rise Against, the Deftones, Dropkick Murphys, Gogol Bordello, Silversun Pickups, Foals, The Joy Formidable, Death Grips, and Tomahawk, just to name a few . . . and this is just the beginning as we continue to invite a wide range of musicians, DJ’s, and bands to make the trek to Detroit.

Of course all our little personal quirks and stuff we’re into will be back in the form of James’ Custom Car & Motorcycle Show, Kirk’s Crypt, Lars’ Hit the Lights Film Tent and Robert’s Vans Vert Ramp alongside the Metallica Museum and other fan favorite attractions. Again, we've joined forces with our friends at C3 Presents, who bring you Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits each year here in the U.S. as well as presenting Big Day Out to our Australian friends, so if you joined us last year you can expect the same friendly atmosphere and festival amenities.
