Maryland Deathfest add more bands to 2017 installment

Maryland Deathfest 2017 has added 25 added to the lineup. The festival’s organizers have also announced that next year’s edition will only feature two venues, those being Rams Head Live and Baltimore Soundstage. The following statement was issued:

“Only 2 venues will be used next year, Rams Head Live and Baltimore Soundstage. Not using Edison Lot may comes as a bit of a surprise to some of you, but to make a long story short, the cost of production to use Edison all weekend is too much to justify using it again next year. We prefer to stay true to our roots and not seek a bunch of sponsors or raise ticket prices to help fuel the cost of continuing a 3 venue format, so downscaling to 2 venues was in our best interest. This decision will keep the cost of tickets cheaper than the last few years, but nearly the same amount of bands that you’re used to will be booked.”

The festival is scheduled to take place from May 25th-May 28th in Baltimore, MD. More information can be found at Deathfests.com. Newly confirmed bands can be found below, with more to be revealed at a later date:
