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 runs from September 25th – 27th, 2015, in White Hall, Maryland, about 30 minutes north of Baltimore.
At the debut Shadow Woods Metal Fest, 36 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, 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 no ticket sales at the gate — advance pre-sales 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 a.m. 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.
