Set Times For Metallica’s Orion Music + More 2013 Announced

Posted by on May 1, 2013

The second annual Orion Music + More festival is slated to feature a pretty diverse lineup. In addition to Metallica, the two day festival will feature performances from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Deftones, Rise Against, Bassnectar, a reunited Infectious Grooves, Dropkick Murphys, The Dillinger Escape Plan, FLAG (one of the Black Flag reunions), Gogol Bordello, Tomahawk, The Silversun Pickups, Battlecross, 12th Planet, All Shall Perish, Vista Chino (formerly known as Kyuss Lives) and many others. Now we know which exact days each band will be playing, as Orion as unleashed set times.

You can view each days set times via Orion’s website, but here are a few interesting things we spotted:

-Unlike last year, Metallica will only be playing the final night (letting Red Hot Chili Peppers close out day 1). Fans hoping to see multiple sets from Metallica at their own festival might be a tad disappointed by this. However, we bet the members will still be hanging around the festival grounds on both days.

-On day 1, Tomahawk will be playing right before Infectious Grooves on the Fuel stage. Why does that matter? Well, we all know Tomahawk is fronted by Mike Patton. And it just so happens that the singer’s former Faith No More bandmate, Jim Martin, will be filling in on guitar for Infectious Grooves. Martin and Patton have not shared a stage together in years, and though the guitarist has been inactive for years, he also recently revealed that his exclusion from the 2010 Faith No More reunion was exactly amicable. Granted, there’s a good hour in between the two’s sets, so whether the two will even cross paths is yet to be seen (aka, don’t hold your breath for a mini-Faith No More reunion).

-While there’s always a chance for last minute additions, it’s safe to say that this year’s lineup is now complete.

Single day passes are now also available for purchase online. In case you already forgot, Orion Music + More 2013 is taking place at Belle Isle in Detroit on June 8 and 9.
