Since 2009 (excluding 2020 and 2021), West Metal Entertainment and Armstrong MetalFest have not only nurtured local talent but also brought well-known international acts to the quiet town of Armstrong, British Columbia. Each year, up to 700 metalheads from Canada and the USA gather in the picturesque Okanagan Valley for three days of camping, metal music, wrestling events, scavenger hunts, and reunions with their metal family.

The festival has seen renowned headliners like Kataklysm, Cattle Decapitation, Archspire, Nekrogoblikon, Origin, Rivers of Nihil, and Beyond Creation, as well as emerging artists from across North America. After the festivities, the festival leaves no trace, leaving the landscape as pristine as ever.

West Metal Entertainment is a non-profit society that not only organizes Armstrong Metal Festival every year but also provides bands with opportunities to perform at various venues in the region, including all-ages shows, to foster musical passion in both kids and adults.
