In a Facebook post, the festival revealed more information regarding its 2022 setup, “We also wanted to let you know that we’ve been working on a variety of things to enhance your overall fest experience, particularly at Edison Lot. We are arranging a shuttle system between Edison Lot and Soundstage/Rams Head that will enable you to see as many sets as possible. Additionally, we are arranging for a significant amount of additional shaded areas at Edison Lot, more tables/seating, and a hydration station.”
The festival has additionally announced that tickets purchased for either the original 2020 edition or 2021 edition of Maryland Deathfest XVIII will be honored at the festival’s 2022 dates.
