Acid King

Acid King is a Doom/Stoner metal band from San Francisco, California.  Formed in 1993, the band took its name from Ricky Kasso, the Acid King, a teen drug dealer who murdered a friend over angel dust while under the influence of mescaline.


With a band name ripped from pioneering doom/stoner band Electric Wizard’s 2000 release, you know exactly what you’re in for. Formed in Montreal in 2008, Dopethrone are oppressively heavy, blending thick riffs with New Orleans grit. Dopethrone is a must-see for all stoners and doom fans. Get ready to be transported into a swap of perpetual haze at their first MDF set.

Saturnalia Temple

Saturnalia Temple was founded by Tommie Eriksson in 2006. Aside from his work in metal bands like Nocturnal Rites and Therion, Eriksson is known for his work as the author of Mork Magi (Dark Magic), a book on the left-hand path.  Eriksson channels his occult expertise into stoner/doom/somewhat drone band Saturnalia Temple. Ritualistic, atmospheric, and psychedelic, in the vein of Electric Wizard and Om, Saturnalia Temple will usher in a doomy haze over MDF. This is their first MDF ritual.
