Metallica are making the logical leap from festival headliners to festival curators as the metal pioneers have created Orion Music + More, an event that promises a wealth of the world’s top bands and, uh, more.

Orion will take place over two days on June 23rd and 24th in Atlantic City, New Jersey and the initial lineup is pretty stacked. Along with Metallica headlining both days, including one day of them performing The Black Album for the first time ever on American soil and Ride The Lightning the other night, Orion will offer some of our faves, including Arctic Monkeys, Modest Mouse, Titus Andronicus, Fucked Up, Best Coast, Hot Snakes, Liturgy, and The Gaslight Anthem. Plus, there is still more to be announced.

Tickets go on sale to fanclub members first and then the public on on Saturday for $150 for both days, including all fees (more info here). Not bad.

Here is the current lineup:

Arctic Monkeys
Avenged Sevenfold
Modest Mouse
The Gaslight Anthem
Cage The Elephant
Fucked Up
Best Coast
Hot Snakes
Titus Andronicus
Gary Clark Jr.
Roky Erickson
The Black Angels
The Sword
