OUT OF THE ASHES.
Shadow Woods Metal Fest enjoyed three wonderful years on our property at Camp Hidden Valley in Harford County Maryland. But as we all know, the only thing constant in this world is change. The property owner decided to retire and sell. So we decided to just call it a day and say three was good and move on.
But the community that has arisen around the fest is strong and would not let the fest die. Before the end of 2017, more than $5,000 was raised in a quiet campaign to keep the fest going. A search was launched to find a new venue and after many emails, phone calls, boarding meetings, presentations and site visits a new home for the fest was found.
We are moving to Virginia.
Our dates for 2018 are Thursday Sept 20 through Saturday Sept 22 at the Harpers Ferry Adventure Center. So mark the days on your calendar and ask off from work, Shadow Woods is back, and it’s going to be weirder than ever.
An updated Shadow Woods Metal Fest website is in the works: http://www.shadowwoodsmetalfest.com/

“Looking forward to the party! We’re gonna be around for the whole fest so let’s get irresponsible,” said bassist Parker Chandler.
Chill out and check out some of these tunes. They have a 40 minute set at MDF. Cough’s average song is 10 minutes long, so they will probably only play three or four songs. But what will be on their set list?
“Without giving too much away, we plan on playing a song we’ve never played live. Other than that, it’s all up in the air,” Parker said in an email.
Cough has shows scheduled before and after MDF. “We’re playing at The Bell House in Brooklyn with Yob on May 23rd. After MDF we start a tour with Dragged Into Sunlight that will take us down to Austin for Chaos in Tejas,” he said.
“We’ve got some beer coozies. We’ll also have some vinyl copies of our first record and our split with The Wounded Kings,” Parker said.
