Maryland Deathfest Postponed To 2021

The 2020 Maryland Deathfest has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The event will now take place on May 27-30, 2021 in Baltimore, MD.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“Maryland Deathfest XVIII has been rescheduled!

The new dates for MDF XVIII are May 27-30, 2021.

As mentioned in previous posts, the goal was to retain at least 90% of the line-up, so we’re happy to say that this has been accomplished despite the incredibly short notice. As with every edition of MDF, we were really looking forward to this line-up and put a lot of time, energy and money into it, so we couldn’t fathom watching it all fall apart. By rescheduling to the same weekend next year, we were able to keep it all from falling apart.

Rescheduling the event to any other weekend in the year would have been much more challenging for us to overcome financially, and the line-up wouldn’t have looked anything like it does now. We needed more breathing space to overcome all of this, so rescheduling to next May was the only solution to give the festival a legitimate chance to stay alive.

As of now, there are only 2 bands, Cadaver and Necrophobic, that still need to give us a final answer about their availability to play on the new dates. We will save a space for both bands until we receive confirmation that they can play or not. If any of them can’t play, they will replaced. We’ll keep you updated on this in the coming weeks.

Death Strike and Prostitute Disfigurement are the only 2 bands that definitely can’t commit to the new dates, so replacements for them will be announced soon.

The rest of the line-up remains exactly the same, including day of show for all bands.

The pre-fest party on Wednesday at the Ottobar has also been rescheduled with the exact same line-up. The new date for the pre-fest is Wednesday, May 26th 2021.

All tickets remain valid for the new dates!

If you can hold on to your ticket for 2021, there is no better way to help us through this situation!

It is somewhat of a disaster for us to process refunds right now, keep the line-up pretty much identical, and have very few funds coming in for months to come. We aren’t making this situation all about our own challenges and understand that this pandemic is making it tough for many of you, but we do need to find a proper balance to handle immediate refund requests and not end up bankrupt at the same time. We will be able to process a fair amount of refunds now, but if the requests are excessive, we will need a bit more time to catch up and offset our losses before everyone can be made whole. We will work with everyone who writes, but there’s only so much we can handle in the immediate future.

If you absolutely cannot attend the new dates, you can request a refund by sending a message to our Facebook page or by e-mailing mdftickets@gmail.com

For those that were planning on getting tickets but didn’t because of the uncertainty over the last month, we will make tickets for MDF XVIII available again in 1-2 weeks. These sales will surely help us through this difficult time.

It feels pretty surreal that we just had to post this news. Of course it’s unfortunate that we all have to wait a year for this to finally transpire, but this decision will give MDF a much better chance to survive for years to come.

We hope to see you at MDF XVIII on the new dates!
In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!
