There’s a new festival in town for U.S. metalheads: Exit 111, set to take place this coming October 11th, 12th and 13th at Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN, the same 700-acre grounds that host Bonnaroo!
The festival is billing itself as a true European-style open air experience with camping, three stages and 12 hours of music each day, and the inaugural lineup is hella impressive. The three headliners are classic acts guaranteed to deliver the hits, with Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard and Lynyrd Skynyrd set to perform. From there things get even better, with the likes of Slayer, Megadeth, Mastodon, Lamb of God, ZZ Top, Ghost, Gojira, Deftones, Coheed & Cambria, Black Label Society, Whitechapel, Power Trip, Thrice, Graveyard, Astronoid and more filling out the card. In other words, this a true metal festival, finally, right here in the United States.
Tickets are available now through an exclusive MetalSucks pre-sale! Three-day GA passes go for $189, which is an insane deal for all that rockage, while single day tickets are $89. VIP options are also available, and camping spots can be booked now too.

The presale is running from 9am EDT on Tuesday, April 23rd through Wednesday, April 24th at 11:59 pm EDT. The general public onsale goes live on Friday, April 26th at 12pm EDT.
Exit 111 will boast plenty of activities in addition to music, such as the Paranormal Cirque (!), a car show, motocross demonstrations and more.
