Prairie Fire Events Ltd is proud to announce their 2017 line-up for Edmonton, AB's loudest indoor metal festival and conference, SHREDMONTON.

"We're very proud to be able to focus this year's festival on showcasing bands that we feel have supported past Canadian festivals plus helped their local scenes flourish. Focusing on keeping this year's experience intimate, yet retaining top-shelf quality is something that I think will set 2017 apart from events we've done in the past."
