heavy_mtl_2016_4x6_010216_ang_v2After teasing a few headliners, the annual Heavy Montreal festival announced their full lineup for the festival taking place on August 6th and 7th. The lineup, as always, is stacked this year, with Five Finger Death Punch and Disturbed headlining. In addition, Nightwish will be playing, performing their full-on European Festival format. That’s not the only power metal happening, as Blind Guardian will be performing. It’s a pretty diverse overall lineup, from the death metal of Suffocation and Repulsion, the theatricality of Ghost, and metalcore acts like Beartooth,. We Came as Romans and whatever the hell Attila calls themselves these days.
