The 80s hard rock jaunt returns for its 15th year next May
Next spring, the M3 Rock Festival returns for its 15th year. The storied three-day jaunt returns to the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland on Ma7 4 and May 5. This year, Queensrÿche and Bret Michaels are set to headline, with featured performances by Stephen Pearcy of Ratt, Last In Line, Quiet Riot, Lynch Mob, Doro, Night Ranger, Stryper, Y&T, Faster Pussycat, and more.
“I’m truly excited to be back at M3,” said Bret Michaels, Sunday’s headliner. “It’s a great rock festival, and I promise you I’m bringing all killer hits, no filler, and a big show! I want the fans to unleash their inner Rockstar.”
Each year, VIP and Pavilion seats sell out quickly. Two-day and VIP packages go on sale Friday, December 15 at 12pm EST. If available, single-day tickets will go on sale some time in the coming months.
The two day festival continues on Sunday, May 5, featuring performances by Night Ranger, Stryper, Y&T, Faster Pussycat, Cold Sweat, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Sun Dogs before closing out the night with a full headlining set by Bret Michaels and special guest Dee Snider with a once-in-a-lifetime M3 exclusive encore jam session featuring anyone and everyone from this year’s lineup.
Over the past 15 years, M3 has become more than a festival; it’s an ‘80s arena rock experience. Drawing diehard fans from six continents, 30 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.
