Orlando’s premier local-centric music festival hosting thirty plus musical acts from all over the country, including home-grown talent from all over Central Florida.
7 years ago, we at E&P had a dream of creating an artist friendly festival with the mindset of helping promote and elevate local heavy bands. From our small beginnings in Edgewater, FL CFMF evolved beyond that market into Orlando where we could continue to expand our reach and become more centrally located.
Since then, CFMF has moved into the next phase of evolution to feature national touring artists and many more regional acts while preserving our original goal to help foster local talent and help give them a much larger stage to showcase their talents.
In 2022 we are hosting 30 plus bands on 3 stages accompanied by food and beverage provided by Ace Café as well as an Indoor VIP area. We hope that you will join us and help us build this festival into something even bigger.
Central Florida Metal Fest is committed to making the events accessible to everyone. The festival is held outdoors.
There will be a special viewing area at the main stages for those with mobility limitations.
