For the past 8 years, some of the biggest names in hard rock, glam and heavy metal have gathered at Merriweather Post Pavilion for one of the most satisfying weekends of music around. This year is no exception as the M3 Rock Festival returns to rock Baltimore (and surrounding areas!) for it’s 9th year on April 28th and 29th, 2017! This year’s lineup features a who’s who of the most notable names from one rock’s most storied eras and is not to be missed.
The lineups from M3 Rock Festival’s past have been legendary and this year is no exception. The festival organizers have once again ensured there will be many notable highlights for metal-hungry rockers. Faster Pussycat, Winger, Dangerous Toys, Station and Baton Rouge will kick of the festivities on Friday and the show will be closed out by Baltimore’s legendary, KIX. Saturday’s lineup is equally as stacked with performances by Vain, Rhino Bucket, Junkyard, Bang Tango, Danger Danger, Autograph, Jack Russell’s Great White, Warrant, Dokken, Tom Keifer’s Cinderella. The recently reunited RATT, featuring vocalist Stephen Pearcy, guitarist Warren DeMartini and bassist Juan Croucier, will be closing out the show on Saturday evening.
One of the best festivals on the East Coast, M3 Rock Festival is a celebration of the music created during the heyday of The Sunset Strip. It’s attended by people who lived the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle, those who missed out and an entirely new generation of classic rock fans anxious to see their favorites take the stage. While many artists featured at the M3 Rock Festival rose to fame decades ago, it’s important to remember the overwhelming majority of artists on this bill are active bands who not only continue to rock audiences around the globe and create new music for legions of devoted fans. There is no doubt you will hear the songs that provided the soundtrack to your youth but you might also walk away with some killer new tunes to add to your playlist! Either way, 2017’s M3 Rock Festival is going to rock you to your core.
