Detroit: Get Involved!

Mar 23, 2013


Hey Detroit! There are just a few days left to get your applications in to be a part of this year’s Festival. We’re hoping to bring you the best rock festival that Belle Isle has ever seen, but we need YOUR help to make it a success.

From showcasing your classic cars to volunteering behind the scenes, there are several different ways to participate and most importantly, to have fun as part of this second annual event.

So, check out the details below and make plans to join us at Orion 2013!


Ktulu’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Emporium

We’re in search of rock ‘n’ roll artists, collectors, and enthusiasts to be a part of Orion’s specially-curated market. A veritable buffet of music memorabilia and experience-based treasures, this marketplace is unlike anything you’ve seen at a festival before.

Be A 2013 Orion Food Vendor

We all know that Orion is landing — Metallica style — in Detroit this summer, and we want to give fans a true taste of the area’s best eats. We need your help making this experiential buffet as well-stocked as possible to keep excited music-lovers well-red and refreshed.

Quality food will be a key component to the festival, so if you’re a Detroit restaurant, food truck or chef, apply today!


Custom Car + Motorcycle Show

Want to show off your ride? Apply to be a part of the most epic collection of rare and vintage wheels. 100 of the best Customs, Hot Rods, Muscle Cars and Custom Motorcycles will be on display again this year at the Orion Custom Car + Motorcylce Show inside the festival grounds throughout the entire weekend.

Last year, Orion ticketholders were able to check out incredible machines from across the world, including James Hetfield’s West Coast Chopper, 1936 Ford Custom “Iron Fist” and a 1953 Buick Skylark Skyscraper, as well as Rob’s customized 1989 Buick Reatta

Awards will be given again this year for Best in Show across a number of categories, plus fans will also be able to cast their vote for Fan Favorite
