Two weeks till Shadow Woods Metal Fest


In just two weeks, the inaugural installation of Shadow Woods Metal Fest -- the new mid-Atlantic, open-air, camping-based metal fest -- kicks off, the gathering running from September 25th - 27th, 2015, in White Hall, Maryland, about thirty minutes north of Baltimore.

At the debut Shadow Woods Metal Fest, thirty-six bands will perform over Friday and Saturday, with lead performances from Midnight, Falls of Rauros, Occultation, Velnias, Iron Man, The Flight of Sleipnir, Dweller In The Valley, Dreadlords, Stone Breath, and many more. Shadow Woods Metal Fest will also be the first live performance for the surviving members of Wormreich since their tragic vehicle crash in April. The gathering showcases underground black, doom, death, and noise and experimental metal bands on three alternating stages all day Friday and Saturday. Camping and workshops on topics such as runes, guitar maintenance, yoga and more will be offered and are included in the ticket price. Artists and record labels will be vending alongside several onsite food stands.

Ticket purchasers will be given the exact street address. There will be ZERO ticket sales at the gate for Shadow Woods Metal Fest -- advance presales to those 21 years of age and older is the only way into the fest, which is also BYOB. Tickets go off sale at 9 am on Friday, September 25th, the official time the gates open. There are only 350 tickets in total to be sold, and three-quarters have already been snapped up.

The bands chosen to perform Shadow Woods Metal Fest reflect the diversity of the underground music scene in the mid-Atlantic region plus a few from across the country. Official sponsors for the fest include Grimoire Records and MusicfortheDead.com. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available. Email contact@shadowwoodsmetalfest.com for details.
