Formed in 2016 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.
