You can pore over the complete lineup of acts set to play the fest below.
Armstrong Metal Fest co-founder Bretton Melanson had this to say of the event's 2019 lineup:
I'm super excited about our lineup this year, we've got some of my drumming heroes in Origin and Entheos, the super fun Nekrogoblikon, our first opportunity to have some bands from overseas in Betraying the Martyrs and Within Destruction, a few of our brothers from the states, and so many killer bands from around Western Canada. Our original dream of bringing the European metalfest feel to Canada is really taking shape, and I'm so grateful to still be a part of this.
Full festival passes are available for $135 and provide holders with access to the festival grounds, thrash wrestling, camping and arena. Further information on day passes and other ticketing options can be found through the fest's official website.
