The three-day event will take place on the 6th, 7th and 8th of that month and will feature vending, some live music, "Kirk's Crypt" private tours, panels, signings, special guest appearances and more. Among the guests already confirmed are The Walking Dead producer and makeup artist Greg Nicotero, plus legendary Dawn Of The Dead makeup pioneer Tom Savini. Hammett, a lifelong horror fan, released a coffee table book in 2012 called Too Much Horror Business that featured photos of his extensive collection of monster and horror memorabilia. He displayed a portion of his collection in the "Kirk's Crypt" exhibition during the 2012 and 2013 Orion Music + More festivals.
