The giants of metal—Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax—come together for this one-day only event in Indio. The festival will feature full performances from these quintet of riff-mad beasts. Last year, the four toured together for the first time for seven shows across Europe. These bands reined during the early ’90s, each producing classic album after classic album (editor’s pick: Reign in Blood), and continuing to release records into the new millennium. Devil’s horns up, kiddies.
