If you like extreme sports, Texas and Danish drummers with an aversion for proper bass mixing, look no more and rejoice, because Metallica has been announced to headline the X Games in Austin, TX this year. Until today, the only scheduled date the band had was this past weekend’s Rock In Rio USA festival. This will be the first time the band have played in Austin since their SXSW set in 2009.
The event, consisting on extreme sports competitions like Skateboarding, BMX, Moto X, Rally Racing, eSports, music and more, will take place this June 4-7. Check out the video announcement they did along with Tony Hawk.
If this is your type of event, you can find tickets here and maybe you can also stay catch some of Nikki Minaj’s set. Because she’s also headlining the event.
