Many fans of this site have made M3 a yearly destination.  Their lineup always fit the bill for any die-hard fan of 80s hard rock. Unfortunately, given the pandemic, the 2020 edition will not be taking place. Here is the information that was posted earlier today on the M3 Facebook page:

M3 Fans,

We have been working tirelessly on trying to find a safe way to hold our annual M3 Rock Festival in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. We had really hoped we would be able to figure out a way to pull it off this year, but we ultimately decided that the health and safety of the fans, artists, and staff was not something we could compromise.

Aside from the myriad of logistical challenges – artist travel from multiple continents, vendors who have shut down during the pandemic, audience and crew social distancing, etc – we ultimately decided that the safe and responsible thing to do is to reschedule. We refuse to produce an event if we cannot guarantee the safety of all involved.

The good news is that the M3 Rock Festival has been rescheduled to April 30 – May 2, 2021. Your tickets will be good for the new date and you don’t need to do anything. We are working on adding some additional bands to enrich the existing lineup. We anticipate having most, if not all, of the original lineup, but are still working through this.

So far, Merriweather Post and other I.M.P. venues here have been the leaders in people hanging on to their tickets and supporting the artists (and us). We cannot thank you enough. This is how live music will get back on track.

Obviously not all of you will be able to join us, so all ticket holders should checks their emails (and spam folder) from more information. For those who can still attend, from us and our artist friends that are waiting to play for you. THANK YOU.

The dates have been rescheduled for April and May of 2021.

Here’s Kix playing “Blow My Fuse” at the 2012 edition of M3, we hope the rescheduled dates go off without a hitch.
