M3 Rock Festival announces new dates of July 2 to 4, 2021 and reveals slightly revamped line-up
The M3 Rock Festival‘s often delayed 12th edition will finally apparently take place from July 2 to 4, 2021 and a slightly revamped line-up.
The 12th edition overall was supposed to take place from May 1 to 3, 2020 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, USA. The line-up included headliners Ratt, Tesla and KIX along with newcomers Accept, Doro and Little Caesar. The M3 Rock Festival was rescheduled to September 4 to 6, 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. Ratt were no longer in the line-up and the headliners were now Queensrÿche, Tesla and KIX. M3 Rock Festival‘s 2020 edition became the 2021 edition when it was postponed a second time to April 30th to May 2nd, 2021 but with no details on the actual line-up.
Notable absents from the latest line-up presented by the M3 Rock Festival consist of Mike Tramp, Doro, Killer Dwarfs, Y&T, Stryper and Dangerous Toys.
The only non-American act remaining appears to be German rockers Accept and it will be interesting to see if some of their Europe based members are able to make the trip to the States to play at the M3 Rock Festival amid the likely continuing Covid-19 pandemic.
New additions to the latest M3 Rock Festival line-up that has been released include The Iron Maidens, BulletBoys (original line-up), Hurricane, Enuff Z’Nuff, Warrant, Great White and Lita Ford.
The following message was posted on the M3 Rock Festival‘s Facebook page earlier today (with slight edits):
“We’re excited to announce that M3 Rock Festival has been rescheduled to July 4th weekend – July 2-4, 2021! And will be celebrated as “M3 America” for one year only. Fireworks to follow Kix on Friday Night.
Great pavilion seats and lawn tickets are still available! Single day tickets and three day passes are on sale now!”
M3 will remain focused on doing this years festival in a safe and responsible way, consistent with public health guidance and in full compliance with state and local regulations. Because the guidelines are continuing to change, we will follow guidance related to outdoor venues from local and state health department officials closer to the date of the show.
Please check back on our website and social channels for updated.
Once final guidelines are established (but no later than a week before the show), they be posted on the website and social media, as well as be emailed to ticket-holders. We join our artists In looking forward to safe, healthy and enjoyable concerts.”
