Metallica, 5 North American Festivals, 10 Headlining Sets, One Unforgettable Year

Danny Wimmer Presents stood the festival world on end this week with the announcement that Metallica will be performing two headlining sets, with different set lists at 5 of next years DWP events.  Epicenter in North Carolina will kick off Metallicas DWP “residency”  May 1st thru 3rd, 2020, followed by Welcome to Rockville May 8th thru 10th, Sonic Temple May 15th thru 17th, Louder than Life September 18th thru 20th and finally culminating with the season ending Aftershock Oct 9th-11th, 2020.

“Metallica isn’t just another headliner. 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.”

“Metallica paved this road that we travel. How many artists on the bill at these five festivals first picked up an instrument, or first started a band, because of Metallica?”

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.
