For its 10th anniversary, Amnesia Rockfest must have called in some big favors, or took a trip down to the crossroads to make a deal with the devil, because the announced lineup is truly something to behold. With more than 100 bands on the roster, highlights include System of a Down, Linkin Park, The Offspring, Snoop Dogg (yes, you read that right!), Slayer, Rob , Ministry, Down, Carcass, and so many more. Visit the official Rockfest website for a complete list of the lineup.
The 10th annual Amnesia Rockfest will be held from June 18th to 21st, at the Montebello marina in Quebec. Opening night will be on June 18th, two main days on June 19th and 20th, and camping from June 18th to 21st.
Rockfest will also feature performances from the Pixies, Detones, Ranicd, Bad Religion, Refused (reunion), Thrice (reunion), Propagandhi, Satanic Surfers (reunion), Buzzcocks, Descendents, ALL, The Exploited, and more!
And this year isn’t just about the music. Some of this year’s new features include having several comedians such as Tom Green, Steve-O from Jackass, and Mike Ward. Several other surprises and secret performances are in store for festival-goers. Finally, a reminder that Tim Armstrong of Rancid and Fat Mike of NOFX are curators of the 10th anniversary edition.
Tickets are on sale now at www.amnesiarockfest.com and wristbands will soon be available in Amnesia stores. Once again, the festival is offering weekend passes at a very affordable price: $120 + fees and taxes, which works out to less than a dollar per group! With the buzz generated so far and such a solid lineup, the team is confident that the festival will sell out for the third straight year. Please note that VIP packages are also available.
Hope to see you there!
