Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine will launch a six-week festival tour in late July boasting two stages of music. Joining his band on the main stage for Gigantour will be Dream Theater, Fear Factory, Dillinger Escape Plan and Nevermore.

Exact routing for the tour has not yet been confirmed, although it is expected to hit amphitheaters in major North American markets. Tickets will be reasonably priced at just $35.

"I think people may want an affordable alternative to the choices out there," says Mustaine, who hopes to make tour into an annual outing. "I look forward to watching this develop over the years and seeing how we can turn this into something that's going to stand the test of time."

Megadeth will be touring behind its latest Sanctuary album, "The System Has Failed," which debuted in September 2004 at No. 18 on The Billboard 200. Dream Theater will utilize Gigantour to support its new album, "Octavarium," due June 7 via Atlantic.
