Now it can be said. Or rather, shouted out loud, from the tops of buildings and mountains: HEAVY MTL is again bringing you a line-up sure to unite tens of thousands of hard rock and metal fans for an unparalleled, mind-blowing weekend at Parc Jean-Drapeau.
And you know when KISS shows up in town, it’s going to bring the mayhem to a whole new level. Continuing their decades-old relationship with Montrealers, the most influential hard rock band of all time bring their record-breaking, genre-defining, bone- crunching pyrotechnic theatrics to Parc Jean-Drapeau. Groundhogs and ducks: time to take cover! And stay under cover for awhile as Disturbed brings back their dark, winding riffs to the stage, joining the bombastic power of Godsmack’s nu metal and Juno-award winner Billy Talent’s indie-ish hard rock as they crank the levels sky-high.
Add to that the sonic wall of one of the originators of the new wave of British metal and you’ve got a party goin’ on – Motörhead will be sure to keep the guitar gods happy. As well as Anthrax, one of the Big Four of thrash metal, prog-metallers Opeth and even more of the biggest and best hard rock and heavy metal perpetrators around.
Last year’s second edition of HEAVY MTL saw 42,500 faithful bang their heads in unison and enjoy the heaviness that is HEAVY. This year that call to hard rock and heavy metal fans goes even further and reaches out down the 401 as the event expands to include the HEAVY T.O. weekend, which launches its first assault on Toronto’s Downsview Park. Why have all the fun in one place: It’s time for Toronto’s fans of hard and heavy rock to stand up and count to ‘11’ on their amps. If you like your music loud and your t-shirts black, you’ll be embarrassed if you’re caught anywhere else this summer!
Tickets for HEAVY MTL go on sale this Saturday, March 26 at noon via evenko.ca. Be sure to check out heavymtl.com, Facebook page and Twitter account for news and updates before the festival goes on sale Saturday.
And if this isn’t enough rock & metal for March, stay tuned for a few more heavy, crunchy announcements to be added to the line-ups.

The remarkable success of HEAVY MTL prompted the launch of a new event, right down the 401 – that’s right, we’re talkin’ HEAVY T.O. “Thanks to the incredible support of fans and the sheer momentum Heavy has gained in two short years, we felt this experience needed to be shared elsewhere in Canada” said evenko’s director of concerts and events, Nick Farkas. “Toronto metal fans have been begging for an outdoor metal festival – we’re answering those calls with Heavy T.O.” said Live Nation Promoter, Emmanuel Patterson.
Set to take place on the same weekend as HEAVY MTL, metal and hard rock fans in the GTA will be able to get up close and personal with the amazing HEAVY T.O. experience. The event will feature two full days of programming and will undoubtedly make Canada the envy of the international metal and hard rock communities.
