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.

Three-day and VIP packages go on sale Friday, December 13 at 10 a.m. EST through Tickets can also be purchased at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 9:30 Club, The Anthem and Lincoln Theatre during normal box office hours.
