North America has always been behind when it comes to metal festivals. Europeans get all the breaks in that regard. Wacken, Roadburn, Damnation Fest, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park, Pinkpop, etc etc. The list goes on.

We don’t get that luxury very often. We have a few, like the semi-recent Scion Fest and the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival. However, one of America’s metal fest highlights has to be Maryland Deathfest, a four day event (May 26th to May 29th) in Baltimore,  Maryland. The lineup for the 2011 iteration has been announced, and it looks pretty damn cool.

Check out the lineup after the jump, as it’s pretty long. For more info, check out the official MDF website!
