Montreal, Québec, Canada (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Here we go: the time has come to reveal the 2014 lineup of HEAVY MONTRÉAL presented by Molson Canadian, the can’t-miss rendezvous of heavy music lovers, back for its 6th edition this year. As announced previously, in order to reach a maximum number of fans, the festival will continue to widen its horizons by presenting a larger variety of bands, making it possible for the rock and metal family to expand and to attract festival goers from all around the world.
Among those who will shake up Parc Jean-Drapeau on August 9 and 10, we find the ultimate heavy music band, Metallica, who will perform their only show in North America this summer at HEAVY MONTRÉAL. Every ticket holder will be able to send their request to the band with code provided to them following their purchase. Furthermore, it will be an all-request show, with a set list picked by the fans! Also on board: punk rock group The Offspring; metal quintet Lamb of God, who will make up for having cancelled their presence at the fest in 2012; Canadian rock band Three Days Grace; Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys; thrash metal quartet Slayer; Toronto’s hardcore act Fucked Up; punk veterans Bad Religion; as well as Bat Sabbath, the Black Sabbath tribute by the Cancer Bats.
A fourth stage will be added this year in order to showcase more artists, including many local bands, and to maximize the festival experience for the fans. And, after a ton of success last year, the HEAVY MANIA wrestlers will return to HEAVY MONTRÉAL this summer. More details will be announced about this in the next few months.
