Meet Metallica + More

May 1, 2013

Congratulations to our lucky winner, Joe Pacella!

Joe and a guest of his choice will be flown out to Orion 2013 this summer to enjoy a weekend filled with 35+ bands, Metallica-curated activities throughout the grounds and, of course, headlining sets from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica themselves. But that’s just the beginning!

Joe spent 9 hours unpacking, sorting and setting up his Metallica tour t-shirt collection, which he’s been working on since 1987. His goal – as he wrote in his Facebook post on our Wall – is to “preserve the history of Metallica through their various tour shirts.” We’re happy to have you at the Festival, Joe!


Here’s the scoop: Metallica wanted the Festival to have activities for every type of fan they have, including elements such as Hit The Lights Films, The Vans Stage + Vert Ramp, The Car Show, Kirk’s Crypt and more. In honor of all the unique aspects of the Festival, we’re asking you to head over to Facebook or Twitter to let us know how YOU are living out one of the many aspects of the Festival: Do you have a collection of Metallica tees? Show us a picture! Do you skate? Post one of your videos! Are you simply a die-hard fan of one of the bands on the lineup?

Whether you express yourself with words, sounds, videos, photos or images, we want to know how you’re inspired to be a fan.

  • Round Trip Airfare for Two
  • 3 Nights Hotel Accomodations
  • Met Club Ultra Passes for Two
  • Meet & Greet with METALLICA
