Among Several Reunions, Linkin Park and System of a Down Highlight 2015 Amnesia Rockfest
February 19, 2015
The 10th edition of the Amnesia Rockfest will be held in Quebec in June, and what better way to celebrate a decade of success than by reuniting some of music’s most influential rock bands of the past 20 years?
That’ll be the case when Refused and Thrice all take the stage in Montebello from June 18-21. Both bands played their last show in 2012, marking the ends of a three-year hiatus during the summer festival in Canada.
This year’s Amnesia Rockfest will be headlined by Linkin Park and System of a Down and also features full-album performances by Deftones (Around the Fur), The Offspring (Americana) and Rancid (… And Out Come The Wolves). Snoop Dogg, Slayer, Pixies and Rob Zombie are also top-billed artists.
The Amnesia Rockfest is considered Canada’s biggest rock music festival. More than 200,000 concertgoers attend each year despite Montebello’s population of just 978. It welcomes rock, punk, metal, alternative, ska and hip-hop acts annually, making it one of North America’s most diverse festivals.
Below is the complete list of announced artists. Tickets are now available through the festival’s main website.
