With Metallica regretfully bowing out from the lineup, Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival organizers needed someone new to headline the three-day event this spring.
So they got Red Hot Chili Peppers to handle duties on Friday, May 15, with Tool added on the 17th.
The MAPFRE Stadium stage in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, May 16 will be graced by Slipknot.
Metallica fans will be able to trade in their passes for another Danny Wimmer Presents show or receive a refund. The band still intends to perform at the Epicenter, Welcome to Rockville, and Aftershock fests.
What do you think of the lineup change? If you have tickets for the festival, what are your plans now?
