Once in a while we here in America are actually able to attend a metal festival. While pretty much every other country, especially the ones of Scandinavian origin, get the option of a metal festival every other weekend, we Yankees must wait and hope. Enter Maryland Deathfest to rescue us from our mediocre metal existence.
"MDF" has been around since 2003 and continues to improve every year. "MDF" has become a force to be reckoned with and internationally known. The festival touts itself as "never conforming to trends, or being limited by genre restrictions, MDF is a showcase of what extreme music, both new and old, is capable of. With an emphasis on diversity, the festival brings together the very best death metal, grindcore, thrash, doom, black metal, hardcore, and experimental bands from all around the world."
2018's lineup includes some very well known bands as well as ones you may have not heard before. The fest runs from May 24th-27th. Set times will be posted in the coming weeks.
Due to the sheer size of the festival there will be two venues, Rams Head Live, located at 20 Market Place, and Baltimore Sound Stage at 124 Market Place. Both are in Baltmore MD.
Due to the popularity of the festival many options are becoming sold out, there is still plenty of time to grab yours below. For more information go to http://www.deathfests.com/event/mdf-2018
There's also still time to buy JPR and I tickets to the show. Front and center will be fine. That would be swell of you.
