According to the Detroit Free Press, Belle Isle will be the site of the recently announced METALLICA-led music festival that’s coming to Detroit this summer - and perhaps in 2014 and 2015, as well.
According to a Detroit City Council agenda, the landmark has been approved as the site of the Orion Music + More Festival, which will be held in the Motor City on June 8 and 9. When Detroit was announced Friday as the home of the 2013 Orion fest, no information was provided for the specific location.
