Armstrong MetalFest has announced its 2018 lineup featuring headliners KATAKLYSM, SARAH LONGFIELD, ARCHSPIRE, THE KENNEDY VEIL, and more (full line-up listed below).
Although this all started as a backyard show, it has now grown into one of Western Canada’s best mountain moshpits in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Reaching its 10 year milestone, Armstrong MetalFest is now known as one of the largest gatherings of metalheads from across Western Canada and beyond. The 2018 line-up will feature over 30 bands performing on July 13th and 14th at the Hassen Arena in Armstrong, BC.
Festival co-founder Jesse Valstar comments,
“Everyone in West Metal Entertainment Society has put in the extra effort in making this year the best year we have ever had. Celebrating 10 years of this festival is a big deal! There were people who were quite skeptical about the event when it first originated, some even went as far as to say “it would never work” and that “it won’t last”. Now ten years later, the tone overall is very welcoming and has been for many years!
This year’s line up brings together a good mix of bands that have never played and fan favorites. Kataklysm has been a band we have sought after over the years and have finally booked! It’s great timing also with them releasing a new album in June!
