Just last month, we learned that Metallica would play 10 different headlining sets across the United States for independent promoter Danny Wimmer's various 2020 hard-rock festivals, and today the full lineup for the first one of the year, Epicenter, was announced. 

Taking place Friday through Sunday, May 1st-3rd, Epicenter has moved to the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina to give fans "plenty of nearby lodging, increased camping, and convenient travel options," according to Wimmer himself. As promised, Metallica's two unique headlining sets will go down on the opening and closing nights of the event, with Disturbed scheduled to handle the headlining honors for Saturday's show. 

Friday's lineup will include Godsmack, Papa Roach, David Lee Roth, Royal Blood, I Prevail, Ghostemane, Ice Nine Kills, the Darkness, Starset, Sick of It All, Agnostic Front, New Years Day, Bones UK, Fire From the Gods, 3TEETH and more.

Saturday will mix in a more classic-rock vibe as the full roster for that day includes Lynyrd Skynyrd in one of their final appearances ever, as well as Staind, Chevelle, Cypress Hill, Anthrax, Alter Bridge, Code Orange, Of Mice & Men, Saint Asonia, Jinjer, Crown the Empire, Anti-Flag, City Morgue, the Chats, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Clint Lowery, Brkn Love, Brutus, Toothgrinder, Brass Against, Selfish Things, Zero 9:36, and Like Machines. 

The third and concluding day will close things out with 'Tallica once again reigning supreme alongside Deftones, Volbeat, Gojira, Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, Hellyeah, Bad Wolves, Hollywood Undead, Sleeping With Sirens, Power Trip, The Amity Affliction, Des Rocs, Goodbye June, Airbourne, Stray From The Path, Plague Vendor, Ego Kill Talent, Higher Power, Skynd and more to be announced.

Tickets for the three-day event are on sale now, with full passes currently priced at $189.50 plus fees and day passes at $99.50 plus fees. See the full rundown of pricing, including special VIP and military packages, here
