DETROIT (AP) — Metallica, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and two-dozen other acts have signed on to play at a two-day music festival in Detroit this June.

Organizers on Monday announced the lineup for the 2013 Orion Music + More Festival, which is to be held June 8-9 on Belle Isle, an island in the middle of the Detroit River.

The inaugural Orion Music + More was held last year in Atlantic City, N.J., with headliners Metallica, Arctic Monkeys and Avenged Sevenfold.

Metallica serves as a host for the event.

Other bands set to play the festival in Detroit include Rise Against, the Deftones and the Dropkick Murphys.
