Metalocalypstick formed last year, is back for its second year. This festival is a celebration of women in metal.
They just announced their second batch of bands. Proud to say that Life Like Fire, Massive Sca Era and Breaking the Silent will be joining Forsaken Rite, Hedks, and the rest of the bands this year.
Held out in the Rockies of beautiful Jasper National Park, founder Kinney of Vancouver’s Anarcheon states “This festival means the celebration of both sexes coming together and creating something amazing. People like to say women in metal aren’t a big deal anymore and that we are all the same. I feel that is untrue, this is still a male dominated world and woman are still looked as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences of men and woman rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can’t we celebrate that?”
The festival also dedicates to raise funds to local charities such as Girls Rock Camp and Vancouver’s Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter. So why not come out rock out to some metal and enjoy the scenery while helping out for a good cause?

I’m Phil and 27 years old. I’ve been involved with music as long as I can remember. I’ve worked as a backstage hand, stage crew, street-teamer with Union Events and various labels, been in and out of bands and started my own magazine; Attainable Magazine. In which I focus on band interviews and had the opportunity to sit down with names such as William Control, Real Mackenzies and I Prevail. As well photograph others such as August Burns Red, Silverstein, and Protest the Hero. Though I tend to gravitate towards the heavier styles; punk, metal, hardcore, and so forth. I do end up at any other show I can get too. I originally had gone to university to pursue broadcasting with a minor in photo-journalism but after a year left to continue to purse music on my own terms. If I’m not at a show, I’m either at a record store adding to my ever growing collection. In my free time I also model and practice body-suspension.
