- advertisement -
Western Canada's largest extreme music event, Armstrong MetalFest is proud to announce its 2022 lineup for its return to the Okanagan after pausing 2020 and 2021 productions due to the Covid pandemic.

Hosting two days of live metal and camping on July 15th and 16th in Armstrong, BC at the IPE Grounds and the Hassen Arena, this year's lineup features headliners Spokane, WA deathcore titans ENTERPRISE EARTH, performing in support of their latest album The Chosen. The lineup also sees Vancouver's cult loved pyro maniacs ZIMMERS HOLE performing for the first time at AMF along with the return of festival alumni progressive death kings NECK of THE WOODS. Presenting a very special performance for this year's lineup is Kelowna's OMNIA NIHIL (formerly APOLLYON) in memory of beloved vocalist Matt Depper who suddenly passed away this January.

A total of 28 bands from across Western Canada and the USA will be fueling the moshpit for much-needed music therapy. The full lineup details are listed below.

Festival organizers add:

"We are so very pleased to present the 2022 lineup! It's pretty much the 2020 lineup just two years later! We decided it was only fair to offer everyone the invitation back since Covid took the first one. Speaking of which, we are honouring all tickets sold for 2020 for the 2022 event (if that doesn't work for you, you can claim it in 2023 or 2024). This is the overall biggest lineup we've ever put together. It's going to be wild. I am looking forward to seeing the gang back together again, two years of extra wrinkles and all!"

Tickets are available at www.armstrongmetalfest.ca.

Ticket holders for AMF 2020 will have them honoured for use to attend 2022. For more information, ticket holders can inquire by emailing – info[@]armstrongmetalfest.ca.

Since 2009, West Metal Entertainment and Armstrong Metalfest has not only fostered the talent of hundreds of local bands but brought in well-known, international acts to the quiet, little Canadian town of Armstrong, British Columbia.

Each year up to 700 metalheads from Canada and the USA descend into the picturesque Okanagan Valley and under the blistering sun they spend three days camping, taking in over 30 bands, participating in wrestling events, and scavenger hunts and catching up with their metal family.

The festival has seen such renowned headliners as Kataklysm, Cattle Decapitation, Archspire, Nekrogoblikon, and Beyond Creation as well as emerging artists from across North America. At the end of the revelry, the festival disappears without a trace, leaving the landscape as pristine as it has always been.

West Metal Entertainment is a non-profit society that not only puts on Armstrong Metal Festival every year in Armstrong, B.C., but gives bands opportunities to play different venues throughout the region including all-ages shows, to encourage musical passion in kids as well as adults.
