Metallica‘s two-day Orion Music + More Festival has just released a full schedule of performances of the ever-increasing number of bands set to play the fest. Along with additional bands being confirmed for Orion, Metallica have also announced a single-day ticket option and new horror exhibit hosted by guitarist Kirk Hammett.

The Orion Festival has been given an extra injection of metal with The Black Dahlia Murder, Ghost and Charred Walls of the Damned having been added to the bill, as well as an additional dose of comedy from newly announced performances by That Metal Show hosts Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson along with Shuli Egar from the Howard Stern Show.

Another newly unveiled sideshow at the fest is Kirk’s Crypt, which will showcase shredder Kirk Hammett’s passion for all things horror. Hammett will host the exhibit, which will consist of vintage film posters, movie props, collectable and much more.

Also, single day passes are now available as an alternative for the full two-day pass. Saturday and Sunday tickets are now going for $90 each. Early Bird two-day passes are still available for $150.

The Orion Music + More Festival will be held on June 23 & 24 at Bader Field in Atlantic City, N.J. Click here for the full Saturday schedule and here for the full Sunday schedule.
