Red Deer, Alberta's Days of The Dead Festival has opened up band submissions for their 2017 event. Applications will be accepted until April 1st. The unique event was founded by Shadows Productions in 2014 and is essentially a heavy metal costume party festival
The event organiser commented on the event: "At first it was an excuse for a costume party with the bands I've developed friendships with, but has gradually changed into something that I feel Red Deer deserves to call its own. The crowds here are so supportive and I love giving them a gigantic event they can look forward to. Days of The Dead came to be because the first year we held it, the festival fell on the Day of the Dead - November 1st."
Now in its 4th year, the three-day event is for both heavy music fans and Halloween freaks. 2017's fest will feature over 30 bands during the October 27-28 event at The Vat for the 18+ shows, plus and all-ages event on the 29th at the International Beer Haus.
