Armstrong MetalFest, the largest mosh pit in western Canada, is back and ready to rock out for its 14th year this weekend.

Metalheads will be rocking out at the Hassen Arena in Armstrong on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13, at the Hassen Arena in Armstrong, according to a media release.

“Armstrong MetalFest will once again witness a pilgrimage of extreme metal music fans for two days of unforgettable moshing, head banging and camping,” a media release read.

Beginning at 9 a.m. on Friday morning, attendees are invited to set up in the camping area for the weekend while the first act begins at 10:30 a.m.

There's a huge lineup of bands including Los Angeles death metal masters Abysmal Dawn and The Browning from Kansas City, with their blend of electronicore and deathcore, which are headlining the music festival.

This festival also attracts up and coming groups “ensuring an electrifying experience for all,” the release said.

Pre-sale general admission tickets for the weekend are available for $209.99 which also includes camping at the venue, access to the festival ground and arena from 9 a.m. Friday morning to 12 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
