As just stated, Chris Jericho will serve as the host for this year’s ceremony, which is taking place at the Novo in downtown Los Angeles. Jericho, who fronts Fozzy, is also a Loudwire Music Awards nominee this year as their song “Judas” is up for Hard Rock Song of the Year.

The performance lineup is headed up by Avenged Sevenfold, with In This Moment, Anthrax, Halestorm, Body Count, Nothing More, Starset, Power Trip and special performances by Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine, Rob Halford and Hatebreed‘s Jamey Jasta filling out the bill.
