With more than 30 artists on the bill this June, Metallica’s upcoming Orion Music + More festival in Atlantic City has the music angle more than covered.
Metallica will be playing their classic “Black” album in its entirety on one of the nights for the first time ever in the U.S., and performing the “Ride The Lightning” album on the other night.
Now, Metallica has announced details of the Orion Custom Car + Motorcycle Show, curated by frontman James Hetfield.
Over 300 of the best Customs, Hot Rods, Muscle Cars and Custom Motorcycles will be on display at the Orion Custom Car + Motorcycle Show inside the festival grounds throughout the weekend.
Orion ticketholders can check out incredible machines from across the world, including celebrity cars in the Primo Palace like James Hetfield’s 1936 Auburn Roadster Slow Burn Kustom and 1937 Lincoln Zephyr Voodoo Priest Kustom by styler and builder, Rick Dore.
Awards will be given out for Best in Show for each category: Customs, Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, and Custom Motorcycles. Plus, festival goers can cast their votes for the Fan Favorite.
Explaining his vision behind the Custom show, Hetfield says, “For a Metallica fan to come in and experience stuff that they wouldn’t normally; maybe they wouldn’t normally go to a car show and see what goes on there.”

Orion Music + More happens June 23-24 at Bader Field in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
