Band Submissions are now open for Armstrong Metalfest 2018!

Preparing for their milestone of a decade of metal in Canada’s Okanagan Valley, Armstrong Metalfest is gearing up for their biggest event to date. Over the last nine years the festival has hosted a long list of bands such as Revocation, Cattle Decapitation, Suffocation, Beyond Creation, Rivers of Nihil, The Zenith Passage, Anciients, Bison, Striker, Archspire, Cryptopsy, Unleash The Archers, Ninjaspy, Vesperia, Aggression among many others for British Columbia’s largest gathering of metalheads from across Western Canada and beyond.

Planning their 2018 edition, Armstrong Metalfest  is now taking band submissions for the biggest mountain moshpit to ever rumble the BC Rockies.

Festival co-organizer Jesse Valstar stated this about band submissions:

“We are very excited to start the band submission process this year! Every year during the band submission phase for Armstrong Metal Fest we get to discover new bands that have formed and new releases from bands we have not been able to keep up with! The bands submissions we receive absolutely have an impact on our booking process. If a band doesn’t submit to the festival we assume they are unavailable. That’s why it’s important to take a little time and just send in a quick email submission.”

Bands interested in applying can fill out the following info below and email to bandsamf@gmail.com.

Band submission deadline is November 1, 2017.
