The inaugural three-day event hosted by Eddie Trunk will be led by headlining slots from Guns N’ Roses, Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and a mix of platinum-selling artists including Slayer (in the last Tennessee show of their career), ZZ Top, Deftones, Ghost, Megadeth and more than 40 acts (full line-up below).

Produced by C3 Presents and AC Entertainment, the massive footprint of the festival site–known to millions as the home of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival–will be transformed into a rock and roll playground with the all-star line-up appearing on three stages with 12 hours of music daily, camping and a variety of activities tailored specifically to concert-goers. This marks the first-ever event, beyond Bonnaroo, to utilize the 700-plus acre farm. On site adventures include Paranormal Cirque (an R-rated crazy yet fun fusion between circus, theatre, and cabaret in perfect harmony with the evolution of a show that brings you back to when we dream…and when we had nightmares and fantasies), the first annual EXIT 111 car show, Red Bull motocross demonstrations and a mega sports bar airing full sports coverage throughout the weekend, with more activities announced soon.

The Press Release:
UMe is celebrating 2018’s Black Friday Record Store Day (November 23) with 10 must-have, limited edition vinyl releases from some of the biggest artists spanning the worlds of rock, reggae, jazz and beyond. This year’s bounty of releases ranges from several vinyl debuts, unique color vinyl pressings, one-of-a-kind picture discs, and specially designed packaging, which in the case of the 45th anniversary edition of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ Catch A Fire resembles a flip-top lighter while Sublime’s Greatest Hits is presented as an oversized matchbook.

Fans of both U2 and Arcade Fire will want to snatch up the double A-side of U2’s classic “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” from the Batman Forever soundtrack. The 12-inch LP features a new remaster of the original song on one side, and a remix by St Francis Hotel featuring vocalists Gavin Friday and Arcade Fire’s Régine Chassagne on the other. Chris Cornell’s incredible legacy is honored with a 7-inch of the recently unearthed track “When Bad Does Good” found in Cornell’s archive of recordings, pressed on black and white marble vinyl and backed with a live version of Temple of the Dog’s “Stargazer.” Following on the heels of Record Store Day’s wildly popular colored vinyl edition of Ella Fitzgerald’s Ella At Zardi’s, a completely unreleased live performance captured just 10 days before, will be released as Ella At The Shrine: Prelude To Zardi’s on translucent yellow vinyl.
