CORONAVIRUS causes M3 Fest pushed back to Labor Day


Due to the CORONAVIRUS M3 Festival has been pushed to Labor Day weekend, September 4-6, 2020. The Festival originally scheduled to take place on May 1-3, 2020. Ratt has initially been scheduled to headline but is not able to make the Festival in September. Tyketto also planned to perform and have canceled all 2020 dates. Hard rockers Winger now added to the bill.


Although it is disappointing that the Festival had to move, it will be interesting to see how having the event on labor day weekend turns out to be. Labor day weekend is the unofficial end of summer; it will make for a grand celebration.

M3 Festival this year has another impressive line up this year. The event is a music festival with artists from the 80’s rock genre. Younger fans who were too young to have lived that period it is a chance to come to M3 Festival see the bands, feel the energy, and party for the older fans it is an annual tradition for some to meet up with friends that we see once a year, a chance to enjoy this bands that are still out touring. Who knows how much longer these bands will be out there performing. Don’t miss this is the chance to see them. The M3 Festival unites people from all walks of life. They don’t care about the world of politics. All we care about is celebrating the music, celebrating life sharing stories, having a beer once the weekend has passed, we go back to our lives. 


It is an event worth attending. Three-day lawn seat tickets are $80, and prices vary for the other tickets inside. They also have VIP experience where you get to meet the bands. The ticket prices and experience are worth a bang for your buck. It is a friendly atmosphere for people. They are always courteous and relaxed with each other. Some of the artists, if they have time, will set up a table to sign autographs and meet fans. Mark Slaughter did it when they performed at the M3 Festival in 2018. He signed autographs and took pictures.
