Amnesia Rockfest Announces Initial 2015 Lineup with Refused, Rancid, From Autumn to Ashes, Ministry
Published Jan 21, 2015We've already learned that post-hardcore titans Refused will perform at Quebec festival Amnesia Rockfest, but that's just the tip of the iceberg, as organizers have let loose the first batch of performers for the 10 year anniversary of the punk-heavy festival.
Most notably, the fest's initial announcement reveals that street-punk survivors Rancid will perform their seminal album ...And Out Come the Wolves from front to back in celebration of its 20th anniversary. The band's Tim Armstrong will also serve as a curator at the festival, as will NOFX's Fat Mike, who is booking the Tony Sly Stage along president and founder of Amnesia Rockfest Alex Martel.
Early 2000s emo-leaning post-hardcore group From Autumn to Ashes will also reunite for the fest, while industrial act Ministry will perform their first Quebec show in seven years.
Quebec groups Blind Witness and Map will also reunite for the show. The festival's lineup is rounded out with appearances from Raised Fist and Goldfinger. Of course, that's just scratching the surface, as many more bands will be announced soon.
Amnesia Rockfest will take place from June 18 to 21 in Montebello, QC. A video recap of last year's fest is available below.
