Sudbury Metal Fest, Northern Ontario's premier extreme music festival returns for its seventh year supporting Canadian metal with 36 bands from across the country, along with showcasing international talent that includes Negura Bunget and Grimegod from Romania, plus Dyanfari from Iceland.
For three days Sudbury will be biggest mosh pit in Canada, from Oct. 23 to Oct. 25, with two stages at the Sudbury Events Centre and Asylum, both located at 19 Regent Street. Ticket, fest line up and set time info can be found below.
"Sudbury Metal Fest has a reputation for showcasing bands that are on the rise and doing big things, and we feel that this year's line up is a solid display of underground and independent bands that Canadian fans need to see live and know about," SMF organizer Mark Howitt said. "In the past, bands we have showcased at these events have went on to win Juno awards, and this year we feel is no exception.
"Artists like Exes For Eyes, Thantifaxath, Zaum, and Corrupt Leaders to name just a few, are making big waves and have had appearances at some large festivals in Canada and the U.S. It is really great to be able to display some of Canada's rising stars all in one event.
"For the first time, this year's line up also has the inclusion of punk and hardcore bands such as the legendary punk band The Ripcordz. We are extremely excited to have brought this unique festival back to life and the response so far has been over the top."
