Yesterday, the organisers of the claimed-to-be biggest and legendary US festival, Maryland Deathfest, have announced 19 new bands to perform at the twelve edition of the event. Dark Angel, Triptykon and Inquisition are among the newly confirmed acts. The break down of which band will play on which stage has also been announced – look below. Tickets will go on sale today (3pm EST); at the following website for US customers and here for international customers (including Canada). Single day tickets for each venue/day will go on sale in early December. This includes single day tickets for Thursday at Rams Head.
UPDATE: Tickets are now only sold through the Maryland Deathfest website: https://www.marylanddeathfest.com/
Here’s what the organisers have announced on the festival’s Facebook page.
“Here we go with the (almost) last round of confirmed bands! This round includes only 3 bands for the main location (Edison), mostly bands to round out the Soundstage billing, and a few bands for the Thursday show at Rams Head (including the headliner for that day). Our website will be fully updated within the next couple of hours.
It appears that we will announce one (possibly two) more bands for the main location (Edison) sometime in December. Neither band will be a huge headliner, but will be a nice way to round things out. One band in particular would represent a country that has never been represented before at MDF, and we’re currently waiting to make sure that they can make it into the US before announcing them.”
