The new 2020 dates are on Halloween weekend!! OCTOBER 29 thru NOVEMBER 1. We anxiously look forward to a fantastic #4daysofdoom in October!! 💀DooM💀.”

Maryland Doom Fest brings both U.S. and international artists from all over the map into Frederick, MD for a full four days of mayhem, featuring headliners Cirith UngolBlood Ceremony, Speedealer and The Gates Of Slumber all set to headline the four nights of top shelf doom metal and heavy underground sounds!
