METALOCALYPSTICK FEST, the Western Canadian outdoor festival that just doesn’t celebrate heavy metal, but embraces the power of women in metal announce their 2017 line up for Canada Day weekend July 1st and 2nd in Valemount, BC. This year's line up features bands from across Canada and beyond with CABRAKAAN (Toluca, Mexico), SOVEREIGN COUNCIL (Kingston, ON), VIOLENT BETTY (Saskatoon, SK), ATMORA (Windsor, ON), SCYTHIA (Calgary, AB), MASSIVE SCAR ERA (Vancouver, BC/Cairo, Egypt) and many more! A video teaser is streaming below.

In addition to the festival celebrating women in metal, METALOCALYPSTICK FEST gives back to the community by being a non-profit organization dedicated to raise funds and donating 100% of proceeds to local charities Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, Earth Protectors plus sponsoring an independent band picked by Metalocalypstick Fest judges.

Festival organizer Kaija Kinney comments:

"This year's lineup is yet again a wide range of metal, everything from punk to folk metal. There really is something for everyone here and a chance to broaden your taste in music. Though we scaled back on our headliners this year, we did not scale back on the level of talent. We are super excited for all the bands playing. There will be some bands that blew us away last year returning and some amazing new talent from across the globe. You think listening to music on vinyl is heavenly? Listen to music surrounded by mountains!"

Formed in 2016 and based in Valemount, BC near Jasper National Park with the beautiful backdrop of the Canadian Rockies, METALOCALYSPTICK was created to present a unique experience within the Western Canadian metal community, a gathering of similar views, aspirations and musical taste. (similar to former mainstream music festival Lilith Fair.)

The festival was founded by Kaija Kinney of Vancouver’s ANARCHEON after researching a lack of female based metal festivals to apply her band to, Kinney took matters into in her own and decided to produce the event.

“This festival means the celebration of both sexes coming together and creating something amazing. People like to say women in metal aren’t a big deal anymore and that we are all the same. I feel that is untrue, this is still a male dominated world and woman are still looked as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences of men and woman rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can't we celebrate that?” says Kinney.

The 1st annual Metalocalypstick in 2016 hosted female influenced metal bands from across Canada and the world such as Brazil’s NERVOSA (Napalm Records), Egypt’s MASSIVE SCAR ERA, Hollywood’s THE MAENSION, VALFREYA, SCYTHIA, MORTILLERY (Napalm Records), VAN HALST, DEAD ASYLUM, JULIET RUIN, VIOLENT BETTY, OMEGA CROM, KORPERLOSE STIMME, ELYSIUM ECHOES, SOLBORN, MONARCH SKY, FORSAKEN RITE, ANARCHEON, and SUSPENDED.
