A new festival is in town, and it’s setting up shop at Great Stage Park in Manchester, TN—the same location where Bonnaroo takes place every June. Exit 111 Fest, a brand new hard rock/metal festival produced by C3 Presents and AC Entertainment, will take place on October 11th–13th. The multi-day festival will treat rock fans to a lineup featuring Guns N’ Roses, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Def Leppard as headliners.
Other artists included on the lineup shared on Tuesday include Slayer, whose set at the event will be their last ever in the great state of Tennessee, Megadeath, Black Label Society, Cheap Trick, Blackberry Smoke, Deftones, Coheed and Cambria, Mastodon, Lamb of God, Alter Bridge, Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown, Black Stone Cherry, and many more.
The event will be hosted by noted rock fan and radio personality Eddie Trunk, who is often heard talking shop with some of rock’s heaviest hitters on his Trunk Nation show on SiriusXM Radio. Fans will have the opportunity to experience up to 12 hours of music per day over three stages across the property.
According to the announcement press release, the festival will also feature a mix of non-musical activities, including what organizers are calling “Paranormal Cirque”—an R-rated, crazy-yet-fun fusion between circus, theatre, and cabaret—a car show, and motocross demonstrations presented by Red Bull.
Weekend passes and single day tickets for the inaugural Exit 111 Fest will go on sale this Thursday, April 25th, at 12 p.m. EST. A special pre-sale is already underway until Wednesday, April 24th, at 11:59 p.m. EST via the festival’s website.
