Exit 111 Festival‘s lineup has just been announced to include a multitude of rock legends. The inaugural festival to be held by hard rock and heavy metal historian Eddie Trunk is taking place October 11-13 in Manchester, Tennessee. Friday will be headlined by Lynyrd Skynyrd of “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Free Bird” fame, along with Slayer (in their last Tennessee show ever), Anthrax, and Killswitch Engage rounding out a busy day of rock. The festival continues with Def Leppard headlining the Saturday shows, and ZZ Top, Ghost, and Mastodon providing more classics to fill out the schedule. Finally, in possibly the biggest performance of the festival, Guns N’ Roses will be closing out the event on Sunday night, after shows by the likes of Deftones, Ministry, and Skillet, among others.
