May is a big month for music festivals in Maryland. On May 1 and 2, aging greasers can relive their hair-metal heyday at M3, featuring 1980s legends like Kix, Quiet Riot, and Europe. May 21 to 24, Maryland Deathfeast takes over venues across Baltimore for an ear-bleeding weekend of extreme metal. And May 30 and 31, the local salad chain Sweetgreen expands its Sweetlife festival to two days, with a diverse lineup that includes Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, and Billy Idol. But which festival is the right fit for you? Take this quiz and find out.
