Orlando, are you ready to rock? On a large, say, festival-size scale?

Look, the answer might be no, but while we dither about vaccination rates and the acceptable size of large gatherings, British metal icons Judas Priest are pushing forward with plans to hold the Warlando Festival — you guessed it — here in Orlando.



Set for Sept. 11 (OK...) — in fairness, that's a good four months after President Biden's stated goal of May 1 to have every adult American eligible for vaccination — Warlando will bring not only the leather rebels, but also Sabaton, Lacuna Coil, Soulfly and Mushroomhead.

Warlando joins other music festivals recently announced to be happening later this year all around the country, including Gasparilla in Tampa, Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas and Furnace Fest in Birmingham, Alabama.

Tickets for Warlando are available now. Just know in advance that you could be a victim of changes regarding scheduling or lineup.

Event promoters Stage Left Entertainment have issued a statement that this will be a limited capacity event and sanitary stations will be available.
