The inaugural Exit 111 festival this October will boast an all-star lineup of rock and metal titans from both classic and contemporary eras of both genres.

The three-day event at the Great Stage Park in Manchester, Tennessee, from October 11 - 13 will be headlined by Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Guns N' Roses, Def Leppard and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Fellow Hall of Famers ZZ Top and Cheap Trick will also perform alongside heavy metal icons Slayer and Megadeth. Modern metal leaders Black Label Society, Deftones, Mastodon, Lamb of God, Coheed & Cambria and Ghost are also at the top of the bill.

The Exit 111 site is also home to the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.

Exit 111 will include 12 hours a day of music, in addition to camping and other activities. The festival also announced its partnership with Seether front man Shaun Morgan's Rise Above charity, for suicide prevention. $1.00 from every ticket sold will benefit the Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE).
