MonJun012015HEADLINER ANNOUNCEMENT and "Loud Times in The Maritimes" Band Battle lineup.After three years of attempting to lock down this band for the festival, it's finally happening. We were originally going to bring a classic Canadian metal band, but decided to save nostalgia for another year and bring something current, kick ass and hungry!
Special guest headliner from Vancouver, BC..... Juno-nominated "Breakthrough Group of The Year" and in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of "Bands to watch out for" that recently finished touring as the support act for ALICE IN CHAINS.....
Head Bangers, Rockers, Lunatics and Freaks.....
THE PACK A.D. will be unleashing the beast in the East this July. If you've ever seen this band live, you either KNOW they are one of North America's BEST live acts, or you just don't get it. For those that get it, this is going to be THE PARTY OF THE SUMMER!!!
They will be helping the battle to "Keep Loud Alive" in the Maritimes while Randy & Mr. Lahey from Trailer Park Boys will be trying to get the festival shut down again, this time for good.
"LOUD TIMES in The MARITIMES" Band Battle lineup.......
The following bands will be battling it out for some new fans, cool prizes and return-spots at future festivals.
Apocalyptic Hate, ADN, Red Kitty, Obscure Illusions, Dark Shrine and RedHail. There were a lot of submissions, but a LOT to be learned for bands submitting too... Instead of 10 bands, we're going with the six listed, which means.... an extra song from each band!!!
Here's a dose of THE PACK A.D. to get you geared up for what will, hands-down, be the LOUDEST SHOW IN NS this summer.
TueApr142015Loud Times in The MaritimesWell Metal Heads and Rockers.... it's year three and we're ready to announce some amazing news for Maritime Metal & Hard Rock Festival. Not only has the festival been moved from September to July, but we've changed venues and to say it's going to be the "Ultimate weekend for the Lovers of East Coast Loud" would be a major understatement. This festival just keeps getting bigger and better. This July 17th and 18th, Windsor is going to get loud. Hants County Exhibition Grounds is only a 35 minute drive from Halifax and there are hotels, NSLC, Tim Horton's, Superstore and much more within minutes of walking.
Featuring 30 of the East Coast's best metal and hard rock bands, this event is designed to create a gathering of like-minded music lovers that might not be able to travel to other provinces/regions for a bigger festival experience. Maritime Metal & Hard Rock Festival is a grass roots event with a huge festival heart. Ticket prices are kept very low, there's on-site camping that's dirt-cheap, loads of vendors, nearby hotels and one other thing.... Randy & Mr. Lahey from Trailer Park Parks will be the official "Trailer Park Supervisors", doing skits onstage, as well as "laying down the law" in the camping area as they meander through the venue taking pics with fans and causing a ruckus.
We're going to be running some amazing contests soon, as well as finalizing the details of the Maritime Battle of the Heavy. Ten bands will compete for a spot at next years' festival and much more. So, if you think 30 bands, Randy & Mr. Lahey, camping and a load of fun makes for a great weekend for you, then grab your tickets as soon as you can. The first 200 Early Bird Weekend Passes will include a FREE weekend camping pass. Tickets and camping passes can be purchased at www.maritimemetalfest.com, starting at ONLY $20, plus taxes and fees. We'll also be offering a discount to those attending Smokin' Blues Fest 5th year Bash at the same venue the weekend before.
Maritime Metal & Hard Rock Festival 3 is brought to you by Smokin' Entertainment, Sound Source Pro Audio, Lex Site Designs, Valley Tye-Dye and T&S in Kingston.
Get ready to raise those horns high,
Reverend D. Evil
