COLUMBIA, Md. – M3 Rock Festival is celebrating a dirty dozen – the 12th edition of Merriweather Post Pavilion’s internationally-renowned ‘80s metal festival promises three days of excitement with festivities beginning Friday, April 30 with the annual Kix-off party, followed by a full weekend of performances Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2 2021.
Take to the skies this year with Merriweather Post Pavilion’s new SkyLawn – keeping your feet on the grassy ground while soaring 43 feet above the pavilion. It’s like walking on air, with the views to match!
Over the past decade, M3 has become more than a festival – it’s an ‘80s arena rock experience. 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.
