Armstrong Metalfest, formerly known as 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).
With Year eight being the most successful year to date of the festival, The staff at Armstrong MetalFest are getting geared up for year nine, July 14 and 15 2017. Bands Submissions Started September 1st 2016 at www.ArmstrongMetalFest.ca and ran until Nov 1 2016.
