Metalocalypstick Fest, the Western Canadian music festival celebrating heavy metal and the power of women in rock and metal music, has opened band submissions for the 2018 edition. The event will be hosted in Lone Butte, BC at the Interlakes Community Center during Canada Day weekend June 30th and July 1st. Deadline for applications is November 11th, 2017 - 11:59pm PST.
The 2017 edition featured a diverse lineup, including Cabrakaan (Toluca, Mexico), Sovereign Council (Kingston, Ontario), Violent Betty (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), Atmora (Windsor, Ontario), Scythia (Calgary, Alberta), Massive Scar Era (Vancouver, B.C./Cairo, Egypt) and many more.
The festival is a celebration of women in heavy metal and it also gives back to the community by being a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for local charities. Some of these local charities include Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter and Earth Protectors.
