The Welcome to Rockville festival set for Nov. 11 through 14, featuring headliners Slipknot, Metallica and Disturbed, has just announced its first-ever livestream in celebration of the 10th edition of the event.

The action begins before the festival is even underway with a kick-off party set for Wednesday (Nov. 10), which marks the first of five days of livestreaming on the Danny Wimmer Presents Twitch channel. In addition to the scheduled artist performances (see the full lineup below), the steam will also include exclusive interviews and behind the scenes content, taking you further into the Welcome to Rockville experience, even if you aren't able to be there in person.

If you're hoping to catch either of Metallica's two headlining sets from the comforts of your own couch, there's some bad news as they are not one of the dozens of acts whose performances will be featured during the livestream.

Tune in starting Nov. 10 at the DWP Twitch channel here.
