Metalocalypstick Fest, the Western Canadian music festival celebrating heavy metal and the power of women in rock and metal music, has released a free digital sampler titled Metal Queens Vol. 2 in support of this year's lineup. This year's edition of the female dominated fest will feature Cabrakaan (Mexico), Obsidian (Vancouver, BC), Siren’s Rain (Puget Sound, WA), DelDesierto (Mexico), KOSM (Vancouver, BC), Anarcheon (Vancouver, BC) and more. The festival will be taking place June 30th to July 1st in Lone Butte, BC at the Lone Butte Community Center.
Festival organizer Kaija Marie commented, "This year’s fest is an exciting one; we have back some festival alumni and some rad new ones from all over North America! We also have a few fun additions between sets. With the location still set in beautiful Lone Butte I ask you... What’s more metal than partying on a volcano? You’ll want to make it out for our 3rd annual female powered metal fest!"
