One of my awesome readers tipped me off to a site that is capturing M3 Festival rumors. I am nearly certain the site is maintained by the M3 camp, so it seems like a hype-ploy to me, but that's smart marketing, right? Anyway, the site says bands like the Scorpions, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Tesla and Sebastian Bach are rumored to play. I think we can all safely assume Kix will be there as it is their hometown and they always bring a big Maryland-area crowd. Other people have said Warrant and Danger Danger, too. I will say this: a long time ago, I heard the festival was May 22. I read online last night that someone else heard June 19. Now, the interesting thing about it all is that Warrant has June 19 @ Merriweather Post Pavilion on their tour schedule. Remember, M3 is a one-day event held at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland.
For purely selfish reasons, I hope M3 is in June this year instead of May. Rock on the Range is May 22nd and 23rd right here in Ohio and I can't pass up such a great event. I'm pretty skeptical about The Scorpions, but the band is touring America this summer so I guess it isn't that far-fetched. I don't get where Emerson Lake and Palmer comes into it all, but hey - that's why we call them rumors, right?
