Metallica is contracted to host the band's Orion Music + More festival for two more years in Detroit, according to Detroit City Council member James Tate said, "It's contracted, and I think since it was a event so well-suited for the venue -- for the type of event it was -- it was perfect."

The band itself has not said whether it will return to the Motor City. Drummer Lars Ulrich said earlier this year in a radio interview, "Detroit was a great experience. We'd love to bring this thing back to Detroit. We've gotta sit down and look at the practical parts of it . . . It's not an easy thing to launch a festival, but we've had a lot of fun the last two years doing it, and we hope to bring it back to Detroit."
