It looks like there won’t be a Heavy Montreal festival next year. Despite this, there are already plans for the 2018 edition of the event.
The following statement was released:
“evenko announces that Heavy Montréal, the rendezvous of heavy music lovers, will be on hiatus in 2017 in order to return, stronger than ever, on July 28 & 29, 2018 at Parc Jean-Drapeau and on July 27, 2018 with Heavy in the City.
“During the past eight editions of Heavy Montréal, we always focused on the quality of the experience in order to give metal and rock fans a first-rate festival,” said Nick Farkas, Vice-President, Concerts and Events at evenko. “Several factors, including the renovations at Parc Jean-Drapeau and the increase in cultural events during Montréal’s 375th Anniversary, contributed to our decision. We truly believe that a hiatus in 2017 before strongly returning in 2018 will ensure the festival’s sustainability as well as offer festivalgoers an edition that will make them proud.”
While awaiting the return of the festival in July 2018, evenko will continue as always to offer a rich lineup of more than a hundred rock and metal shows a year to fans of heavy music. In the next few months, the Heavy Montréal team will announce several 2017 events that the metal and rock community are sure to enjoy.
Among the major must-see events of 2017, there will be the Montreal date of the Not In This Lifetime tour by the legendary Guns N’ Roses, who will perform at Parc Jean-Drapeau on August 19.
Heavy Montréal and evenko members will have access to a presale starting on Thursday, December 8 at 10 a.m. Tickets will officially go on sale the next day, December 9 at noon.
