Decimate MetalFest announces 2018 line-up

Summer is just around the corner and with that, a ton of amazing festivals and Calgary’s own Decimate MetalFest is no exception. The festival will be taking over Distortion from June 7-10th.

Included in this year’s line-up are a ton of great metal acts from across Western Canada and beyond. Though the majority of the lineup is from Calgary with bands such as World Class White Trash, Benevolent Like Quietus, Citizen Rage and Widows Peak. The festival is also welcoming bands from across the country and the US, including Filth (Shelby, NC), Insvrgence (Austin, TX), and Loser (Detroit, MI).

Filth hailing from North Carolina and bringing their downtempo deathcore scene with them. Born in 2015 the band has given listeners exactly what is expected. Be prepared to welcome these guys and have your eardrums jackhammered.

Insvrgence is coming in from Austin, Texas. These hardcore legends are coming in with a vengeance. With the political issues rising this band is just gaining fuel for the show. With their breakdowns, don’t be expecting to be standing still during their set. The energy brought out by these guys is infectious and you’re bound to have a few sore muscles after the show and to view politics from a different angle.

Loser from Detroit is a band for fans of nu-metal. This band brings flavours of Slipknot, Deftones, Korn, and Nirvana in for their fans. With a different twist of the genres as well as bringing variety to the festival this four-piece will still bring the same energy as the rest.

With so many amazing bands, don’t wait to grab tickets. Tickets are on sale now. Advanced prices will be on until March 13th. Door tickets will also be available. Tickets available through local bands or online at If you’re interested in helping or sponsoring the festival. Contact
