BC's Metalocalypstick Fest Gears Up for 2017 Edition
Metalocalypstick Fest — a Western Canadian fest celebrating women in metal — is gearing up for its 2017 edition this summer. It all goes down July 1 and 2 in Lone Butte, BC, and a pile of acts are set to play the event.

This year's lineup features the likes of Cabrakaan, Sovereign Council, Violent Betty, Atmora, Scythia, Massive Scar Era and more. They will all play the outdoor grounds of the Interlakes Community Center.

In a statement, festival organizer Kaija Kinney had this to say about this year's event:

This year's lineup is yet again a wide range of metal, everything from punk to folk metal. There really is something for everyone here and a chance to broaden your taste in music. Though we scaled back on our headliners this year, we did not scale back on the level of talent. We are super excited for all the bands playing. There will be some bands that blew us away last year returning and some amazing new talent from across the globe. You think listening to music on vinyl is heavenly? Listen to music surrounded by mountains!

Metalocalypstick Fest is a non-profit, with 100 percent of proceeds going to Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter, Earth Protectors, plus sponsoring an independent band picked by Metalocalypstick Fest judges.
