I know it's a bit early for this.. and i know bands won't be announced for awhile, but who are your hopes/predictions to play next year? My guesses and/or hope are:

SODOM, Satan, Slough Feg, Autopsy, Repulsion, Blood Ceremony, Mount Salem, General Surgery, Pentagram, Ghoul, Impetigo, Purson, Jess and the Ancient Ones, Witchfinder General, Peste Noire, Assuck, Slaughter, Amorphis

I would be excited if like even 2 or 3 of those bands played

WAY TO JUMP THE SHARK, BRO! :D

That being said, if we're making a wish list... I'd really be stoked and go if one of these bands played...

Borknagar
SognaBrigade
Dalla Nebbia
Funeral Age

... those 4 really are the only bands that I would go no questions asked... but other bands that'd be cool would be...

Absu
Emperor
Acid Witch
Kampfar
Skogen
Primordial
Gallowbraid (I know, not likely, but you never know!)
Falkenbach (*)
Equilibrium

When the real announcements start, can those go in a new thread? I'm sure this one'll be many pages long by then.

Agathocles would be awesome, but i never get my hopes up for them playing. I heard somewhere they've been trying to get them to play since like 2006 and they decline their offers every time. I think it would be cool if Ghoul or General Surgery headlined the soundstage one night. I mean Impaled did it this year..

energymetal14
06-01-2014, 11:46 AM
Agathocles would be great, but if thats true they decline every year that kills any hopes.

Could just be coincidence, but some people here who book grind shows and have a pretty close relationship with MDF shared Suffering Mind's recent status..

Suffering Mind comming to United States in 2015! so fuckin' stoked!!!! more details soon! so many people out there that we'd like to met finally! so many people we'd like to thank for support!!! so many influential bands for us, and now we will have chance to share stage with some of them! we're exited more then ever!

Here are some fun facts about the upcoming announcement of confirmed bands that will be posted at 12 pm (EST) on Tuesday:

- We have never announced this many bands at one time, and definitely not this early, but hey, if bands don't wait around to accept our offers/invitations, we are all for it. It looks like just short of 30 bands will be announced.

- At least 12 countries will be represented in round # 1.

- At least 7 bands in the upcoming announcement are from Scandinavia.

- All of the bands you ask for in the comments that follow this post won't be in Tuesday's announcement.

As promised, here is the first round of confirmed bands for MDF XIII!

Aeternus (Norway) *
Arcturus (Norway) *
Aura Noir (Norway) *
Bulldozer (Italy) *
Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult (Germany)
Demoncy

VENUES FOR NEXT YEAR:

We were satisfied with the venue situation this year, so we've decided to use the same set up again next year. What does this mean? We will use the Edison Lot (located at 545 N. High St) for our 2 main stages, Rams Head (located at 20 Market Pl) will be used each night and will host death/black metal bands, and Soundstage (located at 124 Market Pl) will be used each day/night for grind/hardcore/punk bands. On Thursday, only Rams Head will be used.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE EARLY BIRD TICKET SALE:

We are postponing this sale until Saturday, July 19th at 3 PM (EST). As you probably know, the early bird sale was set for today at 3 PM (EST). However, due to a very drawn out process to approve our ability to accept payments through the new ticketing system (which was just approved this morning), our web team has not had time to test the system. We apologize if you've planned your entire day around this sale, but we would prefer to allow time for the web team to make sure that this new system works, rather than have you deal with problems when you try to order.

Looks like they are confirming a lot of the bands who have canceled over the past couple years.

It's a cost-effective way to fill the lineup with a known entity without having to break the bank. Why spend $5k in visas in plane tickets for a band from Europe that would draw the same as DRI would for a fraction of the cost?

Already seen a lot of those bands after going for the past 6 years at MDF. Not sure if I like where the fest is going with all those black/doom/viking metal bands.

Cool to see Melt Banana & Vallenfyre thought!

BWI is the closest airport, BUT there are a lot of airports relatively close by (Reagan, Dulles, Philly, Wilmington, etc) so if you can find fare substantially cheaper, one of them might be worth it.

- You shouldn't have any issue with any of the Fest shows.
- There are unofficial "Pre Pre Fests" at bars, but obviously you can't get into those.

So... just gonna pull a WOLVERINEKILLS speculation here....

...but what if the reason Garm & Ulver cancelled their appearance this was was so he could make an appearnce with Arcturus for next year!? :eek: . I know that's a long shot, and I prefer Vortex's vocals.... but that'd be SO RAD!


...sorry.... I really cannot believe they got announced for this! :D

That would be awesome if they each did "their" songs with Arcturus. Oh, man.

Neurosis and Goatsnake are nothing but a shitload of fart noises.

But hey! If Goatsanke is there maybe Sunn O))) will be there.

Fridge noises > Fart noises.

if MDF can get Electric Wizard, Venom and My Dying Bride in consecutive years, I'm not gonna write off Arcturus just yet.

It's not the MDF side that I'd be worried about. Arcturus are just super weird dudes and I wouldn't be getting my hopes up until they're on American soil.

Awesome, Winter. I was just wondering the other day if they were done. Also stoked on Portal, Impetuous Ritual, Suffering Mind, Splatterhouse..

So, headliners? Neurosis is the only definite at Edison Lot. Maybe Tripytkon at Ram's Head again? And Melt-Banana at Soundstage, possibly DRI headling a different day there.

Triptykon will be a headliner, I'd wager it'll be the same like this year with them headlining the first night at Ram's Head.

Neurosis will probably be a headliner at Edison Lot. AT LEAST headlining the 2nd stage, after more bands are announced maybe the first stage.

I can see DRI or Wolfbrigade headlining a day at the Soundstage.

In comments on Facebook, they clarified that DRI is on soundstage so I'm sure they will be headlining a night there. Wolfbrigade headlining a night there is possible, but I more-so see them playing the slot at the soundstage before the ending band. I also don't think Melt Banana will be a headliner there, but may play later in the night

Speaking of which, i think melt-banana would be a super fun party brigade band. So far i have them and splatterhouse in the cards for that... but that's to figure out later when they finish the lineup!

Dave Callier just said PLF is confirmed.

Which makes me sad because they're probably gonna be on the punx stage which I've yet to go to :(

The Soundstage is probably one of my favorite venues I've ever been to. I'd definitely suggest getting the Soundstage pass this year. Impaled alone was worth the Soundstage pass last year.

There is a train that goes from said Airport into town. Everything really is in walking distance, unless you're super lazy and don't like a good workout :tongue:

Exactly. I took the train and bus to my hotel and it was like $5 or something. I walked the rest of the trip.

I decided to pass on even trying to get the early bird tickets haha. They were $225, and I know they'll be more whenever they actually go on sale but we decided to book our hotel now instead of worrying about rushing to get tickets.
