Headbangers to collect
The most extreme concert experience in the Okanagan is just weeks away.
The 12th edition of the Armstrong Metalfest will take place from July 15-16 at the IPE site and the Hassen Arena.
Music publicist Jon Asher says this year’s lineup will headline Spokane’s “deathcore titans” Enterprise Earth.
“The lineup also sees cult-loved Vancouver-based pyromaniacs Zimmers Hole performing at AMF for the first time, along with the return of festival alumni progressive death kings Neck of the Woods,” said Asher.
“Kelowna’s Omnia Nihil (formerly Apollyon) presents a very special performance for this year’s lineup in memory of beloved vocalist Matt Depper, who passed away suddenly in January.”
Other Okanagan bands on the program include Sinitry by Salmon Arm and Eden Echo, Naitaka, Planetkiller, Kronikill and Pharm by Kelowna.
Like so many other events, Metalfest was paused for 2020-21 due to COVID restrictions.
“We are so happy to present the 2022 lineup. It’s pretty much the 2020 lineup just two years later. We decided it was only fair to return the invite to everyone since COVID took the first Speaking of which, we’re honoring all tickets sold for 2020 for the event in 2022 – if that doesn’t work for you, you can claim it in 2023 or 2024. Here’s the biggest lineup we’ve ever put together. It’s going to be wild. We’re looking forward to seeing the gang back together, two more years of wrinkles and all,” Metalfest organizers said in a press release.
Metalfest 2022 will feature 28 bands.
Camping is also available for the event.
