Metalocalypstick festival announce line up

Metalocalypstick have announced their 2017 line up, embracing not only metal but women within the metal community.

 

Festival organiser Kaija Kinney had the following to say

“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!”
