Metallica will headline both nights of their own two-day music festival on June 23 and 24 in Atlantic City N.J., reportedly performing their entire self-titled “Black Album” at one show and 1984’s ‘Ride the Lightning’ at the other.

The Orion Music and More Festival will feature a band-selected, diverse and surprisingly alternative-leaning group of supporting acts, including Arctic Monkeys, F–ed Up, Avenged Sevenfold, Modest Mouse, The Gaslight Anthem, The Sword, Cage the Elephant, Best Coast, Hot Snakes, Titus Andronicus, Gary Clark Jr., Roky Erickson and many more.

The band’s official MetClub fan club members will get first shot at buying tickets on Feb. 8-10, with a two-day pass going for $125 and the “Ultra 2-Day Pass,” which allows preferred viewing area and lounge access, going for $225. Standard two-day passes will go on sale to the general public starting on Feb. 11 for $150.

In a live interview broadcast from the festival’s official site, the band promised that in addition to music, their respective lifestyles would be represented in some form at the festival as well — from surfing to skateboarding to cars — although details on how exactly this would work are not available yet.
