"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 8th edition of the festival in 2016," said Nick Farkas, vice president of 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 festivalgoers share an unforgettable experience all weekend long."
The Plaine des jeux site — steps away from the Jean-Drapeau metro station on Île Sainte-Hélène — 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 Montréal 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. Festivalgoers 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.
