HEAVY MONTREAL, presented by Molson Canadian, is proud to announce the 2015 lineup of the festival which will be held at Parc Jean-Drapeau on August 7, 8 and 9. In 2014, HEAVY MONTREAL brought together 75,000 fans of heavy music. The festival has become a major event in Montreal and the 7th edition is bound to be spectacular.
NOW 3 DAYS AT PARC JEAN-DRAPEAU
More successful each and every year, HEAVY MONTREAL is proud to announce that the festival will now be held over 3 days at Parc Jean-Drapeau. Starting this summer, fans will enjoy three full days of hard rock and metal in the idyllic décor of Parc Jean-Drapeau.
Amongst the collection of big names that will be part of HEAVY this year we have already announced the return of legendary band, Faith No More as well as Slipknot who will be performing at HEAVY for the second time. As announced earlier today, Alexisonfire is also part of the lineup. HEAVY is part of a series of 7 festivals the band is playing this summer. This limited engagement is the first time the band has performed together since they briefly reunited for a worldwide 10th anniversary tour in 2012. American band, Korn will hit the stage and perform their first studio album, Korn and some of their greatest hits. Veteran, Iggy Pop will just be Iggy and offer up a good old punk show the way we love them. Speaking of punk, NOFX will also hit the stage at HEAVY and the Ramones’ only living member, Marky Ramone, will perform the band’s biggest hits alongside singer Andrew W.K. We can also count on Billy Talent’s hard rock as well as 2 symbols of metal in the year 2000s; Bullet For My Valentine and Lamb Of God.
As you can see, there is something for everyone at HEAVY MONTREAL 2015 and this is only a part of this exceptional lineup. More bands will be announced very soon.
