Kitchener Metalfest has returned this year on May 30 promoted by Greg Manley, Adam Schlitt and Cindy Bowman at The Wax Nightclub in Kitchener Ontario for the 3rd annual fundraiser for The Grand River Regional Cancer Centre.
Starting at 6pm with doors opening at 5pm, 7 bands hit the stage for an all-out metal assault against cancer. Opening the show is The Sensational Robbie Hain band and his All-Stars (surprise guests from the metal community). Also on the bill is Act Of Sin, Them Thieves, CAYM, and Calling Chaos. Co-Headlining the event is Ottawa’s speed metal giants Vyc Vyper.
Headlining Kitchener Metalfest this year is Hamilton’s Varga. After success in the ‘90s and touring with the likes of Metallica and Rob Zombie, Varga had a lengthy hiatus and has recently returned promoting the albums Enter The Metal (2013) and Return Of The Metal (2014). Touring keeps the band super busy as of late and Kitchener Metalfest is thankful that Varga as well as the other bands could help out this great cause. Tickets are $10 in Advance and $12 at the door. There will be tons of autographed merch and other prizes including studio time and guitars up for grabs.
