Venue information:

Only 2 venues will be used next year, Rams Head Live and Baltimore Soundstage. Not using Edison Lot may come 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.

We know that many of you will form your own opinion about what we should do, but please know that this decision was necessary for MDF to continue for years to come. This is not a sign of the demise of MDF and we aren't ruling out the possibility of outdoor stage(s) at a future MDF.
Please also note that we are currently exploring the possibility of using as much space as possible in and around Power Plant (where Rams Head and Soundstage are located), which will create more space in one centralized area and will help make your experience at MDF XV a positive one. The fest is in 10 months, so be sure that we'll have a plan in place long before you arrive.

Once again, the Thursday show at Rams Head will feature doom/stoner/sludge bands, while Baltimore Soundstage will feature death metal.

From Friday-Sunday, Rams Head will be running all day and night instead of just late evening hours. Rams Head will feature death/black/thrash metal bands all weekend.

From Friday-Sunday, Soundstage will be running all day and night just as it has in the past. Soundstage will feature grindcore/powerviolence/hardcore/punk bands all weekend.

This venue format will allow us to keep collisions of 2 bands playing at one time to a minimum. You also only have to walk 2 minutes between the venues.

As always, merch vendors will be present at MDF 2017. We'll let you know more about where they'll be located in the coming months.

Note that tickets will be limited in this venue format. It is highly recommended that you get your tickets (especially the 4-day pass) as soon as possible. 300 more 4-day passes will be released on Friday, July 22nd at 10 am EST.

Once these are gone, one final wave of 4-day passes will be released (for the same price as the sale on the 22nd) after we finish booking bands. All other ticket options, including 3-day passes for either venue and single day tickets, will be released after we finish booking bands.

More bands announced later this month. Hoping that the rumoured Celtic Frost performance is true but finding it very hard to believe! Can't say I'm too bothered by the venue change - at least everything will be in the one area, less clashes and cheaper booze!

New York, only a couple of hours away on the bus and you can get it for cheap enough, anywhere from $2 to $20.

For convenience it's Baltimore, Washington or Philadelphia in that order but we always work in a few days in NYC beforehand.

3 days til the prefest. Hitting Cryptopsy doing None So Vile in St Vitus tonight to avoid having to deal with their clash with Tiamat at MDF. That's if we manage to leave Rudy's....
