In additional news, AMF is taking band submissions for the biggest mountain moshpit to ever rumble the BC Rockies.
Festival co-organizer Jesse Valstar said: “This year’s band submission process has been going wonderfully. My favourite part is discovering new bands, and this year we have had quite a few new submissions.”
“We are also very excited to start early bird sales a month early this year. We have updated our website and it is looking better than it ever has. The crew at West Metal Entertainment are working hard this year to make year 10 of the festival the best year to date.” Valstar said. “We are looking to take the festival to the next level. So far so good, so bring it on. Ten Years Strong.”
