Heavy metals fans pack Belle Isle for Orion music festival

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

Heavy metal fans packed Belle Isle as Metallica headlined the Orion Music Festival over the weekend.

Thousands turned out for the event.

Metallica is searching for a permanent home for the festival. If drummer Lars Ulrich has any say in the matter, it sounds like the Motor City has a good shot. He told the crowd Sunday, "I don't know about you, but I think Detroit should be our permanent home. We love Detroit and we love Michigan."

The heavy metal legends have a contract with the city to host the festival for a least the next two years.
