||US progressive metallers Queensrÿche have been confirmed for the 2012 edition of the M3 Rock Festival at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. For the first time, M3 fans won't have to choose between bands with overlapping set times, since each band will play one at a time. Also, the festival will take place on two separate stages, giving fans the option to stay in one seat and watch all the bands as they appear on both stages, or fans can move from stage to stage without missing a note.
Friday, May 11: Night Ranger, Kix, Enuff Z'Nuff, In The Pink and Let There Be Rock.
Saturday, May 12: Queensrÿche, Cinderella, Ratt, Skid Row, Warrant, Quiet Riot, Dokken, Stryper, Loudness, Lynch Mob, XYZ, Bang Tango, Drumwars and Street Light Circus.
