Second edition of Farm Fest June 7-8-9, 2019 in Vankleek Hill

The second edition of Farm Fest is set for June 7, 8 and 9, 2019 at the Vankleek Hill Fairgrounds.

The event website says describes this as “no typical country music festival”, although it takes place in the country. The event will offer entertainment by more than 20 heavy metal bands and bills itself as a showcase for heavy metal, punk and rock music. This year’s event will offer a beer pong tournament at midnight on Friday evening and will include a car show as well as onsite camping. The licensed event will have the “Fromagerie et cie” food truck on site.

Weekend pass tickets are now on sale at a 50 per cent discount, but for a very limited time only, say organizers. The $49.99 tickets are on sale now for just $24.99 per person.

A few of the bands slated to perform are: Obliterate, Insurrection, Autumna, Becoming The Bully, A Scar for the Wicked, Misshapen, Fall Of Stasis, DistortHead but the complete line-up will be announced soon!

The event is presented by Autumna, a five-5 piece Canadian Progressive/melodic Deathcore band based in Montreal. Four of its five members are Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute graduates who live in Prescott-Russell.
