JUST ANNOUNCED: Metallica drops Sonic Temple Festival.

Danny Wimmer Presents and Metallica have announced that they will no longer be performing at Sonic Temple 2020. DWP have also announced that Red Hot Chili Peppers and TOOL will be replacing Metallica on Friday and Saturday night. You’ll also catch bands like Slipknot, Staind, Evenesence, and many more on this year’s lineup.

“First and foremost, I want to say how much I respect and support James for taking care of himself, and for his commitment to getting healthy. At the same time, I am also deeply devoted to providing our fans with the biggest and best festival experience in the world. As disappointed as we all are to lose Metallica, I am thrilled that Tool and Red Hot Chili Peppers, dear friends of both DWP and Metallica, as well as two of the biggest rock bands in the world, are stepping up on short notice to keep Sonic Temple on track to be the greatest rock festival in America,” says Danny Wimmer, DWP founder and festival creator.
