Maryland Deathfest share first wave of 2024 lineup

maryland deathfest

Maryland Deathfest have shared the initial wave of its 2024 lineup. The festival is scheduled for May 23-26, 2024 in Baltimore, MD. The festival will boast many foreign bands making their only U.S. appearance. A limited supply of early bird tickets for the event will be available here Friday, Januaray 27 at 11 AM EST.

The festival shared the following along with their lineup announcement:

The majority of the foreign bands confirmed thus far will be making an exclusive US appearance at MDF 2024. There are a few foreign bands that will also play several additional MDF-affiliated shows in the week following MDF, so be on the lookout for more info about that in the coming months.

Regarding venues/stages being utilized for MDF 2024, we are planning to use Rams Head, Power Plant, Soundstage, and potentially a stage outside at Market Place (near Soundstage). We will be able to follow up about the Market Place stage in the early summer, but as it stands now, we are planning on this 4 stage arrangement, all of which are contained to one general area and will reduce the amount of walking for you. This indoor/outdoor arrangement all in the same general area could be somewhat reminiscent of when the festival was at Sonar, for those who remember that.

There will be plenty of space for merch vendors around the fountain area at Power Plant and nearby sidewalks, right between the stages being used.

We still have at least 40 more bands to announce, and the next round of 10 or so confirmed bands will be announced during the month of February. We are holding off until late spring/early summer to potentially announce a few of those bands, as there are still some obstacles in the way for them to enter the US.

We hope to see you again next year for the return of Maryland Deathfest on May 23-26, 2024!

I have heard of exactly one of these bands.

Cancel all bands and book Turnstile. Would cost promoters twice as much, but would be a Mastodon-level move.

^except for that chick that got her box eaten in the autopsy pit. Last year they didn't have enough facilities and someone shit on the ground.

Not going north of the Mason Dixon line for any reason. ___ Who's going to tell him?

anonymous 1/25/2023 12:18:57 PM

Nearly a year and a half away? Wonder how many bands will be canceled because of something they did 10 years ago...

anonymous 1/25/2023 2:23:17 PM

"rick_tocchet 3 hours ago Not going north of the Mason Dixon line for any reason." Maryland is south of the Mason Dixon line you f*cking retard. Another case of you acting like you know shit, but you know nothing.

Ok so like all years 3 good bands spread out over 3 days. Rest of time is baking in too early summer sun with a mild bear buz/headache wishing it were over already.

anonymous 1/25/2023 3:13:14 PM

anonymous 1/25/2023 4:29:27 PM

anonymous 1/25/2023 10:01:14 PM

Hopefully all 40 of the bands they are yet to book are good, cause this isn't.

anonymous 1/25/2023 10:03:17 PM
