The heavy metal time machine will turn back to the 1980s and ’90s when QUEENSRŸCHE, CINDERELLA, RATT, KIX, WARRANT and NIGHT RANGER are among the 19 bands to take over the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, playing full sets of their glam rock and heavy metal hits. For the first time, M3 fans won’t have to choose between bands with overlapping set times, since each band will play one at a time. Also, the festival will take place on two separate stages, each simulcasting the other, giving fans the option to stay in one seat and watch all the bands as they appear on both stages, or fans can move from stage to stage without missing a note.
In its fourth year, I.M.P. Presents M3 Rock Festival starts with the official M3 Kix-Off Party on Friday, May 11 at 7 p.m. The full-blown 2012 M3 Rock Festival begins Saturday, May 12 at 11 a.m.
