Armstrong Metal Fest 2012

by Brandon William Fletcher

You may remember our coverage of AOA from last year (we even got to send a lucky reader to it)… Armstrong Open Air was started in the summer of 2009, inspired by the summer outdoor metalfest circuit in Europe. Just like anything else, AOA started out small, on a rural farm just outside of Armstrong BC. The first year, with no advertising, drew about 300 people out to see 11 Okanagan metal bands rip up the stage (made of a pair of flatdeck trailers).


They’ve come a long way since then and recently announced their Lineup for the their 2012 event on July 20th & 21st:

  • Anthrosoire
  • Archspire
  • Axis Disrupt
  • Cast Into Ashes
  • Deny Your Maker
  • Empyria
