America’s biggest extreme metal festival Maryland Deathfest just announced new bands for 2013, their eleventh iteration. Here’s the latest update, via the festival’s Facebook:
BOLT THROWER (UK) – Headlining the Thursday show!
CARPATHIAN FOREST (Norway) – Exclusive US appearance!
REVENGE (Canada) – Exclusive US appearance!
It looks like we’ll be announcing the venue info sometime next week. It’s impossible to put a precise date on that announcement, but everything is coming together. The final announcement of bands will be sometime between October 8-10. Until we get to the end of the booking process and see what comes together or not, we don’t know who is headlining other than Venom (between Fri-Sun) and Bolt Thrower (Thurs). Tickets will go on sale by mid-October. We’ll keep you posted on a precise date.
NOTE: The Thursday show will be inside only, so once again, 4-day passes and Thursday only tickets will be extremely limited.
This is shaping up to be the best MDF yet. This year’s was amazing, so surely next year’s will be even greater. Full updated list of bands is available after the jump. MDF XI is May 23rd – 26th in Baltimore, MD.
