March 19, 2013, 4 years ago
The Outaouais Rock team has announced the complete line-up for the 8th edition of the Amnesia Rockfest, now the biggest rock festival in Quebec. The festival will kick off with a series of indoor shows from June 10th – 16th at the Montebello marina in the Outaouais region. Main outdoor festivities take place June 14th and 15th.
The line-up includes ALICE COOPER, LAMB OF GOD, ANTHRAX, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE and more!
In addition to a significant enhancement of the three existing stages, Rockfest will introduce two new “international” stages that will focus on cult favorites and rare bands. Taking to these stages include the reunion of BLACK FLAG, which will play under the name FLAG, BAD BRAINS (after an 18 year absence in Quebec), SICK OF IT ALL, BIOHAZARD, DISCHARGE and many others.
Rotating with the main stage, the Québécois stage will feature CRYPTOPSY (with the band’s original frontman Lord Worm), GHOULUNATICS, GRIMSKUNK, KATAKLYSM, as well as many others.
In total, over 150 bands will take to the stages during the event. It cannot be left unsaid that camping zones and festival grounds will be expanding the week leading up to festival as will indoor show venues (the lineup for indoor shows will be released in the upcoming weeks). There will be numerous activities taking place over the course of the event including rides, a rock and roll museum, a haunted house, buskers and fire spitters to enhance the carnivalesque and festive atmosphere.
