Now in its tenth year, the Heavy Montréal festival took place on July 27th and 28th at Parc Jean Drapeau in Montreal. We came, we saw, we head-banged, we noshed. In celebration of a decade, here are ten things we learned at this year’s edition of the festival!
After a year on hiatus Heavy Montreal is returning in 2018 and the lineup for the massive hard rock/heavy metal festival has now been announced.
Day 3 of Osheaga was arguably the best day, partly because it didn’t rain finally and it was packed. Getting through the crowd was like finding your way out of a cornfield maze.
Day 1 started off sunny, and although I anticipated rain in the forecast I was not expecting a torrential rainfall which made the first day interesting.
Osheaga has become the Canadian equivalent to festivals like Lollapalooza thanks to a few distinguishing factors.
