Hello Friends and Supporters..... We are looking for suggestions from YOU for what weekend to hold the festival next summer. We might keep it the last weekend of July, or we might move it to the second weekend..... or, we might move it to August or even early September.... SUGGEST AWAY folks.... Tell us what weekend works best for YOU and we will try to accommodate. We are also pondering the possibility of relocating the festival closer to Halifax or even New Brunswick. We love Windsor too, so we will see. Lots of stuff to confirm before any announcements..... But we CAN announce that we are going to be launching an absolutely, mind-blowing ticket special for this December. Cheapest passes in years, even though everyone who attends knows it's already a sweet deal for a weekend of insanity. Thanks for the continued support and inspiration. ... See MoreSee Less

For our 6-6-6th year of Maritime Metal & Hard Rock Festival, we will be bringing some tribute acts. This will open a door for the unknown bands because more folks will buy tickets to bands that they recognize the music of. We will still be having a ton of the best-of-the-best up-and-coming original Maritime bands, but bringing in a few tributes will broaden the reach for the younger bands to make new fans and sell a few more shirts. We ARE swallowing our pride this year and going for some funding and perhaps corporate sponsorships, which will allow for better compensation to the bands and those involved. We are now in the pre-planning stages of the festival, so help us out.... WHAT TRIBUTE ACTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE? Metal/punk/hard rock......... www.maritimemetalfest.com... See MoreSee Less
