M3 Festival Preview


It's that time of the year again. Time to break out the hairspray, eyeliner, leather jackets and torn jeans. M3 is back! Maryland's annual 80s rock festival specializing in all things glam. This year we celebrate a decade of decadence. It's M3's 10 year anniversary!

The party kicks off Friday night with the Kix-Off, headlined by Maryland legends Kix with special guests Tom Keifer of the great Cinderella, Y&T, Faster Pussycat, Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd. Tesla's Frank Hannon will perform a special set for the VIPs.

Saturday's heavy-hitters are Sebastian Bach, Night Ranger, Queensrÿche but the knock-out punch comes from the M3 debut of The Space Man, Space Ace, Kiss' Ace Frehley. Saturday also delivers performances from Slaughter, Stryper, Last In Line, Lynch Mob, Loudness and Tyketto bringing us a full day of music.

The festival grounds also hosts tons of venders from rock merchandise, to food and drink, to the always popular 80s salon. So come out to Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland on May 4th and 5th to celebrate everything that was awesome about 80s metal. See you there!  \m/


UPDATE: Official Announcement Per M3 Rock Festival

Due to immigration issues, Loudness will not perform at this year's M3 Festival. However, we are pleased to announce Grammy nominated hard rockers, GREAT WHITE, will be in place of Loudness. Great White, known for such hits as "Once Bitten, Twice Shy," "Rock Me," "Save Your Love" and "Mistabone" return to the M3 Stage after a six-year absence. We are excited to have them.
