Very soon, the metal gods that are Judas Priest are celebrating fifty years of heavy metal, leather, and living after midnight. While touring is more or less off the table for the foreseeable future, the progenitors of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal movement insist on bringing a sizable music festival to the United States by this time next year. Pairing with Monster Energy, the band has slated the Warlando Metal Fest for September 11, 2021, to be held inside the Orlando Amphitheater in Orlando, FL.
There’s only so much information available at this time, but the bands confirmed for the festival include Sabaton, Lacuna Coil, Soulfly, Mushroomhead, and Uncured, with the potential for many more to be added in the near future.
Tickets are available for purchase now, including VIP packages that feature amenities such as a full liquor bar and cell phone charging areas. There is also the option for the Double Down Pass, which includes general admission into both the Warlando Fest and the Rebel Rock Festival, which will take place in the same venue from September 24-26. For more information, updates, and pre-orders, visit the Warlando official site.
