Last year, Metallica headlined both nights of the inaugural festival, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the "Black Album" and playing it in its entirety one evening, as well as "Ride the Lightning" the other night.

Another 37 acts also performed on four different stages, including Arctic Monkeys, Avenged Sevenfold, Cage the Elephant, The Black Angels, Suicidal Tendencies and Sepultura, among others.

Metallica most recently released "Beyond Magnetic," a four-song EP originally issued as a digital-only offering, on physical CD in January.
