Metallica Will Headline Five US Festivals In 2020

Legendary rockers Metallica already have their 2020 summer plans booked. The band announced they will headline five major US festivals next year including Epicenter in Concord, NC; Welcome to Rockville in Daytona Beach, FL; Sonic Temple in Columbus, OH; Louder Than Life in Louisville, KY; and Aftershock in Sacramento, CA.

The band revealed that they will play two distinct sets over two nights at each festival. Furthermore, these five appearances will be the only U.S. fests that Metallica play in 2020.

“Metallica isn’t just another headliner,” remarked festival promoter Danny Wimmer in a press release, “When Metallica takes the stage, it’s an event. It’s an experience. That’s the same standard we’ve set for every DWP festival — from the first band to the last band, and everything that happens in between. I can’t wait to bring the biggest band in the world to the biggest rock festivals in America.”

Tickets for all five festivals are on sale now for Metallica fan club members and for past purchasers of tickets for Danny Wimmer Presents events. A general public sale starts Monday, October 14th at 9 AM PT / Noon ET. Click here for more information.

From now until  November 19th, Danny Wimmer Presents will donate 25 cents from each ticket sold to Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation. Learn more about the foundation here.
