Quebec City’s Le FestEvil, a festival celebrating women in metal is proud to announce its inaugural line up being hosted on March 6th at Le D’Auteuil. For its first edition, the festival will be showcasing bands from both Montreal and Quebec City in various metal sub-genres ranging from folk, black, death, progressive and symphonic metal.

All feature one or more female musicians in their rankings.

The festival has lined itself with the Friday, March 6th concert date to coincide with International Women’s Day officially occurring on Sunday, March 8th. The goal of the festival is to highlight the great contribution and need for more presence of women in the Quebec metal scene.

Le FestEvil is founded by the Canadian death metal band The Flaying guitarist Didier Samson and co-produced by Rope Dancer Productions and District 7 Production. Samson explains the creation of the festival in further detail:

“I created the FestEvil to celebrate women in metal. Their contribution is essential to our national metal scene and should not be looked over. This is the first concert of many to come that is all fronted by women and is to show the world out there that the Canadian metal scene is alive. I also decided to produce the show 2 days before International Women’s Day so that all the best of the best female musicians from Quebec’s metal scene are all under the same venue for us all to celebrate, this is ‘The Beauty of The FestEvil’ and the women in our metal scene making a difference.”
