Armstrong Metalfest will return for a 2023 edition on July 14 and 15 in at Armstrong’s Hassen Arena located in BC’s beautiful Okanagan. 2022’s event proved to be the festival’s most successful to date, including its highest attendance on record following a two-year Covid-induced hiatus.

Tickets for AMF 2023 and camping, along with the lineup, will be announced at a later date.

Festival co-organizers Jesse Valtsar comments:

“Mark it down on the calendar, we have huge plans to make 2023 the biggest event to date! With the success of 2022, we are going to continue the momentum right into next year! We are planning out our headliners and dreaming up new ways to make Metalfest the best!”

West Metal Entertainment, a non-profit society that not only puts on Armstrong Metal Festival every year in Armstrong, B.C. but gives bands opportunities to play different venues throughout the region, including all-ages shows, to encourage musical passion in kids as well as adults, has been running Armstrong Metalfest since 2009.
