Possibly. I read that Metallica was thinking of other locations but would like to keep it in AtlCity, if the city officials would renew the license to be there. I also read that the city thought the festival a success and it brought in more revenue than the Phish weekend did.
But, yeah, I can see how the city has decided that next year wouldn't be the best timing but I would also think they may need the little economic boom it would bring as well.
Feb 14th: Father John Misty
March 24th: Big Data
March 30th: Alt J + Phantogram
June 4th: Ride
June 5th - 7th: Governors Ball NYC

June 27th: Contemporary Color ft: David Byrne, St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, tUnE-yArDs, ect.
It's going to be on a huge island park, Belle Isle. It probably is one of the coolest venues for a festival Detroit has to offer. It's also f*cking monstrous. Here's the Wikipedia page if you're interested: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belle_Isle_Park
Lineup announcement in the AM. This is gonna be deadly. 30th bday celebration in picturesque Detroit. Then flying to NSH for 1st ever 'Roo.
I'm also curious as to how they'll change things up this year. Last year they had the shtick of playing two albums in full. What do they do this year? Plus, the undercard was super varied last year. It'll be interesting to see who they get. Matt & Kim have an announcement at 10 EST tomorrow. From Orion to Bonnaroo? I'd be down.
