Glam & Heavy Metal Returning To Merriweather Post Pavilion

| January 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

M3 Rock Festival, the definitive, can’t-miss annual gathering of heavy metal bands and those that love them, will turn back clock to the 1980s and ‘90s at Columbia, Maryland’s Merriweather Post Pavilion on Friday, April 25th and Saturday, April 26th. Known for its idolized metal bands and colorful, devout audience, M3 will once again feature full sets of glam rock and heavy metal hits. The festival will take place on two separate stages, each simulcasting the other, giving fans the option to stay in one seat and watch all the bands as they appear on both stages, or fans can move from stage to stage without missing a note.

Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel, Femme Fatale, John Corabi and Heaven’s Edge.

M3 has become more than a festival. It’s a happening, a congregation of those who fell in love with hair metal in the ‘80s and teenagers getting in on it for the first time.
