Perfect conditions for rock at Metalfest

The smoke from the forest fires was parted for exactly the dates of the Armstrong Metalfest.

The smoke from the forest fires around the province was parted for exactly the dates of the Armstrong Metalfest so the fans got to enjoy a true Okanagan summer weekend.

“Armstrong Metalfest 2017 was hands down the best festival we have put on to date,” festival co-founder Jesse Valstar said.

“The sound off the stage and production was truly mint, and out team ran the show like a well oiled, mechanically determined beast. The town of Armstrong raised their metal flags to welcome their guests for the weekend, by painting their front doors with the AMF logo, rocking metal shirts and playing their favorite metal music.”

Valstar said he has not had a more satisfying year.

“The amount of smiling faces I saw enter and leave the venue all day just proves to me why we do what we do. Bands and fans mixed and mingled, new friendships were born and memories were made! Plain and simple, the best weekend of 2017 for this guy.”
