With 12 rocktastic editions of M3 Rock Festival under its belt, Merriweather Post Pavilion is charmed to celebrate lucky number 13, featuring the M3 debut of ‘80s rock legends Blue Öyster Cult. The internationally renowned festival returns with a full weekend of performances on the main stage May 6th –8th.
M3 Rock Festival’s Official M3 Kix-Off Party on Friday, May 6th features hometown heroes KIX with special guests Doro and Lizzy Borden, and a special VIP-only performance from Count’s 77. The full blown 2022 M3 Rock Festival begins Saturday, May 7th and includes multiplatinum-selling internationally known ‘80s artists: Tom Keifer, Extreme, Blue Öyster Cult, Stephen Pearcy, Tony Harnell (Voice of TNT), Heaven’s Edge, Vain, and more.

Over the past decade, M3 has become more than a festival – it’s an ‘80s arena rock experience. Drawing diehard fans from six continents, 20 countries, and every state, M3 has evolved into an annual pilgrimage for those who grew up with ‘80s rock (a genre of music now referred to as the “new classic rock”) as well as for younger fans who embrace the fun and excitement of the glam metal era.
