There’s a new hard-rock festival arriving this October in Manchester, Tennessee and it’s a big one. Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard and Lynyrd Skynyrd will be headlining The Exit 111 Festival, and it will be the first three-day camping-and-music event to be held at the 700-acre Bonnaroo site, that is of course aside from the Bonnaroo festival itself.
The Exit 111festival will be held through October 11th– 13th and is a mix of hard rock, heavy metal and healthy dose of Southern rock. Megadeth, Slayer, Black Label Society, ZZ Top, Ghost, Mastodon, Deftones, Coheed and Cambria, Lamb of God and Ministry will be there, as well as Black Stone Cherry, rising Southern rock group Bishop Gunn and Nashville rebels the Cadillac Three. On a related Slayer note, the band is slated to perform what is being billed as their last-ever Tennessee concert.
You can snag your weekend passes and single-day tickets for Exit 111 as of April 25th, and the festival will be hosted by hard-rock DJ Eddie Trunk.
