TVD Ticket Giveaway: M3 Rock Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion, 4/25-26

It’s almost that time of year again when music festivals roll into town, bringing bands and music lovers of all genres together for a day or weekend full of music, booze, and possible leg cramping.

These fun-filled weekends come in a variety of sizes and genres. The nationwide Vans Warped Tour is basically a traveling concert, hitting up numerous cities in a span of 50+ days. On the west coast, there’s indie, grunge-rock Coachella and SXSW. On the east coast, there’s the CMJ Music Festival for up-and-coming artists, and the hard-rock and metal M3 Rock Festival.

This year, the M3 Rock Festival celebrates its sixth year of bringing metalheads together for one big hurrah at the Merriweather Post Pavilion. Though tickets went on sale last month, if you still haven’t gotten yours, have no worries! We’re giving away two-day lawn passes each month leading up to the festival.

M3 Rock Fest features an epic line-up of eighteen bands sharing two non-overlapping stages over two days. This year, M3 is hosting its annual Kix-Off Party on Friday, April 25. Sharing the kick-off stages are bands Kix and Extreme with special guests Lita Ford and Winger.

Day Two, Saturday, April 26, is jam-packed with several bands, alternatively dispersed on two non-overlapping stages, giving attendees the chance to enjoy the entire line-up.

This year’s line-up includes:

Tesla
Kix
Extreme
Night Ranger
Lita Ford
Sebastian Bach
Winger
Queensrÿche
Slaughter
Stryper
L.A. Guns
Jack Russell’s Great White
Keel
Autograph
Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel
Femme Fatale
John Corabi
Heaven’s Edge

    I would love to see Vandenberg’s Moonkings play the M3 festival!
    (ex Vandenberg and Whitesnake)
    Also bands like Accept, Helix, Krokus, Kingdom Come or Slash, bands that haven’t played M3 yet.
    For returning bands maybe Cinderella, Scorpions or Y+T
    ( Kix for the Friday kix off) or Danger Danger
