Metallica will be playing two nights and Nine Inch Nails will headline Thursday night at this year’s Welcome to Rockville festival. The event takes place in Daytona Beach, Florida, from November 11 to November 14. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rob Zombie, Social Distortion, Deftones, Disturbed, Staind, Lamb of God, Mastodon, Anthrax, the Offspring, and Stone Temple Pilots will also perform during the four-day festival at the Daytona International Speedway.
In 2019, Metallica announced they would perform two-night stands at five U.S. music festivals, Welcome to Rockville among them. However, those gigs were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so Metallica is now making good on that promise with Welcome to Rockville headlining performance on November 12 and 14; both shows promise to have “unique” sets. (Metallica will also play two shows at Louisville, Kentucky’s Louder Than Life fest.)
Nine Inch Nails―who recently announced headlining gigs at both Louder Than Life and Chicago’s Riot Fest in addition to their Cleveland concerts―will perform at Rockville’s opening night November 11th, with Disturbed set to headline November 13th.
