Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard, Slayer, Ghost And More To Play Inaugural Exit 111 Festival

With the year nearly halfway done, organizers across the United States are beginning to start their music festival season. We have fests like Welcome to Rockville as well as Maryland Deathfest coming to us in May. Now, we have the brand new Exit 111 Fest coming to Tennessee in October, which has a ridiculously stacked lineup to offer.

Headlining slots on this festival are filled with classic acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Def Leppard, and Guns N’ Roses, for those looking for their dose of good ole fashioned hard rock. That’s only the tip of the iceberg, though, as this festival is full of metal favorites as well. We also see names such as Slayer (playing their last Tennessee show ever), Megadeth, Ghost, Coheed And Cambria, Lamb of God, Mastodon, Seether, Deftones, Gojira, Black Label Society, Ministry, Thrice, Whitechapel, Nothing More, O’brother, Power Trip, Fever 333, Graveyard, and Astronoid, just to name a few of the great bands on here.

The festival will be taking place from October 11th till the 13th at Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee, where the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival also takes place. Both weekend and single-day passes will be going on sale this Thursday, April 25th at noon EST, 11am CDT. This is no festival to miss, especially if you are in the area, so make sure you jump on those tickets the second you can. Tickets are already available for purchase.

One of the most notable things on this festival is the inclusion of Slayer, which this is going to be their final show in the state ever. If you haven’t been following, Slayer has stated that their next tour will be their last before retiring, so this is bound to be a huge show for fans in Tennessee. Ghost and Nothing More will also be touring around this date, which you can get more information for here.
