The festival will take place the weekend of July 27th and 28th at Parc Jean-Drapeau, with two-day general admission tickets starting at $175 Canadian ($132 US).
In addition to the aforementioned acts, the lineup includes Anthrax, Steel Panther, In This Moment, Killswitch Engage, Clutch, Gamma Ray, Beartooth, Hatebreed, Skillet, Atreyu, Quiet Riot, Watain, Kataklysm, Despised Icon, Municipal Waste and Metal Church, among others.
