Nate Renaud – Founder – Calgary Metalfest
On September 14th, 2016 the biggest rendition of Calgary Metalfest (CMF) will be kicking off it’s fifth year and the line up has been catching international attention. The big deal this year is of course the final night of the festival where attendees will be treated to a “Historic Night of Canadian Metal” featuring Annihilator, Exciter (original 1985 line-up), Razor and Sacrifice, all sharing the same stage on September 17th, 2016. The preceding nights have killer draws as well with The Exalted Piledriver headlining Thursday September 15th at the Distortion Music Venue and Toxic Holocaust, the only international act on the bill, will be tearing apart Dickens Pub on Friday night. The rest of the bill is packed with a selection of local heavy hitters and new acts that the founder of the festival, Nate Renaud, thinks you should check out.
