Prepare for a headbanging extravaganza with back-to-back headlining performances each night, featuring SLAYER and PANTERA (Thursday), SLIPKNOT and FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH (Friday), IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST (Saturday), and MÖTLEY CRÜE and DISTURBED (Sunday). The festival will also feature a stellar lineup throughout its four days, showcasing performances from renowned artists such as EVANESCENCE, BREAKING BENJAMIN, STAIND, FALLING IN REVERSE, Till Lindemann, RISE AGAINST, HALESTORM, SEETHER, DROPKICK MURPHYS, FLOGGING MOLLY, MASTODON, ANTHRAX, ARCHITECTS, Tom Morello, CYPRESS HILL, MINISTRY, and many more.

SLAYER expressed their excitement in a statement: “There’s been a lot of excited fans out there about our playing a couple of festival dates, so it’s great to be able to add this last one.”
