The Exit 111 festival held in October at Great Stage Park will not return in 2020, according to post on Facebook from the organizers. 

The festival, which saw metal and hard rock acts like Def Leppard, ZZ Top Guns 'n' Roses and Seether, was held on the same site that Bonnaroo takes place each fall and was produced by the same organizers, AC Entertainment and C3. 

The post reads: "Exit 111 will not return in 2020. We would like to thank all the incredible fans and road warriors who rocked out and camped with us this year."

The festival showcased 40 bands and drew an estimated crowd of around 20,000 people, which is about one-fourth of what Bonnaroo drew in 2019.
