Quebec’s annual Amnesia Rock Fest music festival has unveiled their full lineup for this year’s edition, which marks their 10th anniversary.
The headliners are typical mass selling alt rock acts like Rob Zombie and Linkin Park, but the heart of the lineup consists of a wealth of exciting punk, hardcore and ska acts. Some of the more notable acts are Rancid (performing …And Out Come the Wolves), both Descendents and ALL, and a Swedish invasion with Refused, Raised Fist, No Fun at All, Randy and Satanic Surfers channelling the 90s heyday of Burning Heart Records.
The majority of the diverse lineup is made up of American bands and includes metal acts (Down, Hatebreed), hardcore (Sick of it All, Cro Mags), ska (Voodoo Glow Skulls, Catch 22) and classic punk groups (Exploited, Buzzcocks). There is literally something for everyone, with comedy acts, industrial groups and even obscure French music for those who haven’t travelled too far.
A new addition this year is an opening day to the festival, Fuck Sponsors Night, which will be void of marketing. It will include an extremely rare festival appearance from Canadian legends Propagandhi, with a Rage Against the Machine tribute group and guests in a small venue.
Rock Fest will run from June 18-21, 2015 in Montebello, Quebec. Ticket prices range from $177 (incl. fees) for General Admission to the obscene $4386 (incl. fees) for those who have insane amounts of spare cash to blow on a VIP package.
