Scarab Metal Productions has put the finishing touches on the Noctis V Metal Fest.
The festival is taking place over three days at the University of Calgary’s MacEwan Hall Ballroom, the Distillery Nightclub and Vern’s Bar in downtown Calgary.
Venom have been secured as the headlining act, with Pig Destroyer, Agalloch, and Grand Magus also tapped for the bill.
Venom’s set will mark their first Canadian appearance in 27 years.
The fest will also boast Manilla Road, Black Witchery, Nunslaughter, Excrementory Grindfuckers, Midnight, Psychostick, Speedwolf, Blood Ceremony, and The Contortionist.
Oh, and I almost forgot that The Order of Chaos, Anciients, Scythia, Hoopsnake, Phantom Limb, and Kataplexis is also playing the fest.
To help Noctis patrons unwind after what is sure to be an epic set by Venom, the official after party at Vern’s Bar will include a metal and punk set by Bloated Pig and Oh Shit!
Sounds like it’s going to be a gnarly good time. I’d go, but I might not be let over the border.
