Metallica sent out a "Save the Date" on Friday. Along with the below video, it included this message:

WHO: Metallica
WHAT: Save The Date
WHEN: Tuesday, February 7th at 11:00 AM PST
WHERE: www.metallica.com
We'll know what that's all about at 2:00 PM EST, but if the Daily Swarm is to be believed (and I think they are):
METALLICA IS THROWING A TWO-DAY FESTIVAL IN ATLANTIC CITY THIS SUMMER...

What we do know: a two-day Metallica festival is set for June 22 & 23 in Atlantic City, and due to be announced this afternoon. Many bands are playing.

What we don't know: everything else. We will update as soon as we find out more information. An announcement is set for 2PM EST, today.

Stay tuned for more.

UPDATE: It's true, and it's called Orion Music & More

Look for clues in the "Save The Date" video below...

Hopefully AC is wrong and they do this in Asbury like a metal version of ATP.

Definitely won't be in Asbury Park. It's got to be AC since AC has enough hotels rooms available for the festial crowd and sufficient space for the actual show in the place where DMB had their hippy festival last summer.

I have a feeling this is going to be good. Very good.

"very good" = Lulu performed in it's entirety in the round with Lou Reed and featuring Laurie Anderson doing bird chirping sounds and striking odd poses.

Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets was the best they had to offer.. Kill em all was mostly cover songs anyway!

Posted by HUGECOCK | February 7, 2012 10:26 PM

If I had Master Of Puppets as the best album that I did, I would be a proud young man.
