the m3 rock festival is a celebration of the days of decadence and glamour attended by people who lived it and their children who remember hearing about this cultural movement.

COLUMBIA, Md. (Dec. 5, 2018) – M3 is cranking it up to 11! New this year, the 11th edition of Merriweather’s internationally renowned ‘80s rock festival is expanding to a third day, with the festivities beginning with the annual Kix-off party on Friday, May 3rd, followed by a full weekend of performances on the main stage on Saturday, May 4thand Sunday, May 5th.

M3 Rock Festival starts with The Official M3 Kix-Off Party on Friday, May 3rd, featuring hometown heroes KIX (who have a perfect attendance record and have played every single year) along with special guest Heaven’s Edge. The full-blown 2019 M3 Rock Festival begins Saturday, May 4thand includes multiplatinum-selling internationally known ‘80s artists: Whitesnake, Warrant, Firehouse, Steven Adler of Guns N’ Roses, Danger Danger, Kingdom Come, Autograph, and Tora Tora.

Drawing diehard fans from six continents, 20 countries, and every state, M3 has evolved into an annual pilgrimage for those who grew up with ‘80s rock (a genre of music now referred to as the “new classic rock”) as well as for younger fans who embrace the fun and excitement of the glam metal era.
