FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, DISTURBED, NIGHTWISH, VOLBEAT, Others Confirmed For HEAVY MONTREAL

FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, DISTURBED, NIGHTWISH and VOLBEAT are among the newly confirmed bands for this year's edition of Heavy Montreal, set to take place in August.

For the eighth edition of the constantly evolving festival, fans are invited to the Plaine des jeux on August 6 and August 7 — steps away from the Jean-Drapeau metro station on Île Sainte-Hélène — which will be specially set up to welcome thousands of fans to the site during two memorable days of rock celebration.

"We are still working hard to establish a formula that can meet the expectations of metal and heavy rock lovers, and we believe that we’ve found the ideal location to present the eighth edition of the festival in 2016," said Nick Farkas, vice president, concerts and events at Evenko. “We have a lot of confidence in the festival's potential, and we keep taking all the necessary steps to ensure that, as fans, the festival goers share an unforgettable experience all weekend long."

The Plaine des jeux site, which can accommodate 25,000 people, is well known by festival goers, who have been visiting it for several years. By bringing together the Heavy Montreal shows on three stages installed in a clearing surrounded by mature trees, the organizers want to create an intimate atmosphere that will heighten the magic of the moment. Festival goers will be able to fully enjoy this exceptional site and make it their own; the Plaine des jeux being the ideal location to live the rock and metal experience to the fullest.
