This years lineup is being hosted in Lone Butte, BC at the Lone Butte Community Center during Canada Day Weekend (30th June – 1st July).
Festival organizer Kaija Kinney states: “This year’s fest is an exciting one; we have back some festival alumni and some rad new ones from all over North America! We also have a few fun additions between sets. With the location still set in beautiful Lone Butte I ask you… What’s more metal than partying on a volcano? You’ll want to make it out for our 3rd annual female powered metal fest!”
