Metallica's Orion Music + More Festival

Too. Freaking. Awesome.

June 8 & 9, 2013

2013 Lineup:

Metallica • Red Hot Chili Peppers • Rise Against • Deftones • Bassnectar • Dropkick Murphys • Gogol Bordello • FLAG • Silversun Pickups • Foals • Tomahawk • Destroid • The Joy Formidable • Datsik • Borgore • Japandroids • Dillon Francis • Adventure Club • 12th Planet • Death Grips • The Dillinger Escape Plan • DirtyPhonics • The Dirtbombs • DEATH • Fu Manchu • The Bronx • FIDLAR • The Orwells • BATTLECROSS • All Shall Perish • Cauldron

Sign up for the email list before 11pm 2/25/2013 to access presale on Tuesday 2/26, 10am. http://www.orionmusicandmore.com/

Ticket prices are $90 per day or $150 for both days (cannot be split - you get a single special wristband good for both days). There was also a $750 VIP 2-day deal, but I don't think I can possibly eat & drink $600 worth at the VIP food stations & open bar - too rich for my blood!

    Lots of chaos but what a great time. It was nice catching up with some of you. I had a feeling the whole group might have trouble getting together- that's the nature of events like this. I'll see the rest of you next time.

    Also, there is a water bottle refill station at the food emporium, so you really only need one bottle.

    Wish I could go to this, but I'm a little strapped for cash at the moment. I'll see if I can go to Mayhem Fest instead!

    Looks like the closest options are Dearborn and Warren which are only marginally closer than my house in Livonia.

    • Scott

      Matt, could you please send payment to [masked] thanks

      May 12, 2013

  • Scott

    Matt and I have booked a room at the Marriot in the Ren Cen. If anyone wants to join let me know. There also might be other rooms available, but you have to book through Hotels for Hope - hit me up if you want the info...

    May 10, 2013

  • Scott

    The rooms are at the Detroit Marriot in the Ren Cen and have to be booked through a 3rd party that has booked hotels for the Orion Fest. It's really important that people who are interested respond right away because these are the last of the rooms and won't last.

    May 10, 2013

  • Scott

    I was able to find a couple of rooms downtown and its the last they have, so if you're interested call me ASAP so we can book![masked]

    May 10, 2013

  • Jody M

    We are staying at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown using hotel points. Although we made reservations in February...

    May 6, 2013

  • Scott

    I did some looking online for hotels and there appears to be nothing downtown available, so we may have to go out several miles. We should probably get this organized very soon...

    May 6, 2013

  • Matt

    Any plans on the rooms? I'm fine sending a deposit. I have me +1, ok sleeping refugee style. Should be an epic weekend.

    April 6, 2013

    • Scott

      Hey Matt, if you have room in your room I could send you money. Where are you thinking of staying?

      May 5, 2013

    • Matt

      I have not made a reservation. Has anyone? If so where? I have no idea where to stay downtown.

      May 5, 2013

  • Jim S

    if anyone ends up with a ticket they need to sell, i might be interested, especially a 1 day

    April 15, 2013

  • Matt

    I'll be there. I really love Belle Isle and am really surprised and pleased to see a major event coming to this underutilized venue.

    We'll have to get some hangout/picnic/rockout plans together as the event approaches. I'd be in for hotel room.

    I got my ticket...are people interested in getting a hotel room? It would be nice to not have to worry about driving home, especially with a 2 day event...

    Not enough bands other than Metallica for me to spend the $$...

    I'm actually bailing, because there are very few bands other than Metallica that I'm interested in seeing. Going to do Rock on the Range instead.

    I'm sure Kristina will still be able to coordinate hotel & other details!

    My +1 is a friend of Colleen's, and she thinks several of her friends may come in from out of town. I'll keep the count updated.
