Evenko (a.k.a. evenko), the company that hosts the long-running annual Heavy Montréal, Heavy In The City, and Heavy Toronto festivals in Canada have announced that Heavy Montréal is on hiatus for 2017, but set to return in 2018. We have all the details below.
Nick Farkas, Vice-President, Concerts and Events at evenko commented:
“During the past eight editions of Heavy Montréal, we always focused on the quality of the experience in order to give metal and rock fans a first-rate festival. Several factors, including the renovations at Parc Jean-Drapeau and the increase in cultural events during Montréal’s 375th Anniversary, contributed to our decision. We truly believe that a hiatus in 2017 before strongly returning in 2018 will ensure the festival’s sustainability as well as offer festivalgoers an edition that will make them proud.”
The official dates for Heavy Montréal 2018 are on July 28 & 29, 2018 and Heavy in the City on July 27, 2018!
In the meantime evenko will continue to host countless rock and metal events all over the city, numbering over 100 per year. In the next few months, the Heavy Montréal team will announce several 2017 events that the metal and rock community are sure to enjoy.
Among the major must-see events of 2017, there will be the Montreal date of the Not In This Lifetime tour by the legendary Guns N’ Roses, who will perform at Parc Jean-Drapeau on August 19.
Heavy Montréal and evenko members will have access to a presale starting on Thursday, December 8 at 10 a.m. Tickets will officially go on sale the next day, December 9 at noon.
