We have an update on The Maryland Doom Fest 2020 events and can confirm they are rescheduled for Halloween Weekend.
The Maryland Doom Fest will now take place from October 29th through November 1st (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Featuring the legendary acts Cirith Ungol, Blood Ceremony, Speedealer, and The Gates Of Slumber are all confirmed to headline the four nights of top-shelf doom metal and heavy underground sounds!
The official word from JB Matson, founder of Maryland Doom Fest:
“In these trying times, we hope each of you are healthy & happy. The current state of the world has forced us to postpone Maryland Doom Fest 2020, so that we can properly party down MDDF style.
The new 2020 dates are on Halloween weekend!! OCTOBER 29 thru NOVEMBER 1. We anxiously look forward to a fantastic #4daysofdoom in October!! 💀DooM💀“
The fest celebrates its 6th anniversary in 2020; today we have the updated info and each day’s roster of bands set for its two-venue stages. Their mainstay Frederick, Maryland venue Cafe611 is still the primary spot and where all the headlining acts will perform. The second venue for the fest is a new partnership with Olde Mother Brewing! Each venue still just steps away from the other (a little over 200 feet from door to door, a two-minute walk/crawl), but this new addition of Olde Mother Brewing brings a more balanced space capacity between the two venues.
There are many acts to see over the course of these four nights, covering every dark and dank corner of metal sub-genres from start to finish each night.
