Canadian goth rock / metal band Van Halst announce they will be performing on this year's Metalocalypstick Festival in Valemount, BC on August 27th. The two day non for profit festival was formed to support women in metal, punk, hardcore and heavy bands! All bands on the festival line up feature one or more female members that are all Canadian and all power with special out of country guests Brazil's Nervosa headlining. 2% of proceeds from the festival will be donated to Girls Rock Camp and Vancouver Rape Relief and Women's Shelter. Full details and line up can be found at http://www.metalocalypstickfest.rocks.
“We are very excited to be performing at Metalocolypstick Fest. There is such a limited presence of women in rock and metal so we’re really looking forward to meeting all the other bands over the weekend. This is an important festival being that the majority of festivals we perform at are male dominated, usually we’re the only female led band on the bill. We’re looking forward to watching the other bands and encourage people to come out to beautiful BC to take part in the festival.”
