CDF 3 is where things took an interesting turn. Despite logistical issues with the venue situation at the time. We found a brand new place just blocks outside of Chicago city limits in Berwyn, IL called Wire to host the 3rd edition of the fest. It was a big move and that also included doubling the down on the previous year's output. Switching to a 22 band two day format. This year also included the long awaited return of Brodequin and big selection of best brutal death metal bands from around the US. CDF 3 had firmly established itself as one of the top destination underground festivals in the country.
