Metallica are set to headline their own festival for the second time in summer 2013.

The iconic metal band originally set up Orion Music + More in 2011 and performed at New Jersey's Atlantic City and now they are planning to continue the festival for a second year.

Metallica are set to play in Detroit on June 8th and 9th 2013, although full details of both the location and full line-up are yet to be revealed, with February earmarked for a complete publication of details.

It has been a busy few months for the band with the release of their live DVD Quebec Magnetic hitting shelves across the world and also them announcing their split with long-term record label Warner Music Group.

Speaking about the original Orion Music + More, Lars Ulrich told Rolling Stone: "I don't walk around and think they're all Metallica fans, I think they're all festival fans, music fans, people out for the experience. I hope our fans are going to be open and supportive of everybody that's here."

Metallica are also planning a new album due to be released in 2014.
