Danny Wimmer Presentsis proud to announce that rock icons Metallica will exclusively headline Epicenter Festival (May 1-3)at its new location at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC. Recently named the world’s biggest all-time touring act by Pollstar,Metallica will—for the first time ever—perform two separate headlining sets.
In addition to two appearances at the festival,Metallica will also deliver a unique set list for each performance, resulting in 10 different shows over the course of the year.
“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,” says Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents, the largest independent festival producer in the U.S. “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?”
