Western Canada’s decibel-breaking festival Loud as Hell has announced main stage additions The Kennedy Veil and Sarah Longfield to this year’s 2018 lineup to join headliners New Jersey’s deathcore titans Fit for an Autopsy, Vancouver’s tech death giants Archspire, Regina’s progressive melo-death masters Into Eternity, plus many more that will rage across the Dinosaur Downs Stampede Grounds in Drumheller, Alberta, from August 3rd to 5th.
Also announced are second stage acoustic performers Kris Schulz, Kyle Pullan, Jesse Valstar Project, along with a burlesque show from Hazzardous Material, plus clinics presented by Into Eternity guitarist Tim Roth and Ninjaspy bassist Tim Parent. All will be showcased as entertainment during main stage change overs.
LAH Festival co-organizer Geoff Bourrie commented:
We have worked really hard to put together what we feel will be the best Loud as Hell yet! We have many of the heaviest and hardest bands from around Western Canada and then cap it all off with New Jersey’s Fit For An Autopsy, which will bring Loud as Hell to the next level! You will not want to miss this.
