Wacken Metal Battle Canada returns for its fourth year showcasing Canada’s top independent metal talent to the world stage at Wacken Open Air in Wacken, Germany, which holds an attendance of over 80,000 metalheads from around the world.
For the last three years that Wacken Metal Battle has been held in Canada, it has produced two world champions Vesperia (2015) and Crimson Shadows (2013) to triumph at the international Wacken Metal Battle beating out over 30 other representing countries from around the globe.
This year’s 2016 edition has expanded once again across the country with Hamilton and London and cities from BC’s Lower Mainland, Island and Interior set to be announced at a later date joining the ranks of Victoria, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.
“It’s hard to believe that we are already on our 4th edition of the Metal Battle. As always we are striving to make it the best one yet! Expanding to new cities is key to our growth, and we’re very pleased with the addition of Hamilton and London in Ontario, and the Interior in BC. So prepare for a wild year of quality showcases across our great country, and let us all join in celebrating Canadian metal.” comments WMBC organizer JJ Tartaglia.
Submissions for bands from across Canada will be open as of November 5th, and end on January 5th at 11:59 PM, EST. Bands can submit their application for participation at this location.
