2019 dates: May 23-26. The concept of Deathfests is simple: to bring to the world the best and most extreme bands the underground has to offer. Never conforming to trends, or being limited by genre restrictions, we want to showcase what extreme music, both new and old, is capable of. With an emphasis on diversity, our festivals brings together the very best death metal, grindcore, doom, thrash, hardcore, black metal, and experimental bands from all around the world. Since 2015, we've expanded, adding festivals in California, the Netherlands, and Quebec, along with an additional event in Baltimore, called Days of Darkness (from website).
