Western Canada’s largest decibel-breaking metal festival, LOUD AS HELL is proud to announce it will be hosting its 10th edition in 2022 from July 29th to 31st at the Dinosaur Downs Stampede Grounds in Drumheller, AB for live extreme music and camping.
For its 10th year, LOUD AS HELL is making a gigantic roar for metal bands from across the globe to apply and have the opportunity to unleash the inner beast on their outdoor stage with Alberta’s badlands as the perfect backdrop.
Bands applications are open until November 15th at the following link: https://www.loudashell.ca/bands
For LAH’s 2021 lineup, the music event featured an assortment of forty top-tier artists from Western Canada over three headbanging days that included a special reunion performance from main headliners Into Eternity with former vocalist Stu Block along with Planet Eater and Arrival of Autumn (Nuclear Blast).
The sold-out 2021 lineup was scaled down to only Canadian bands due to international artists being unable to perform in the country because of border restrictions and guidelines stated by the federal government for Covid pre-cautions.
For the 2022 lineup, LAH will be showcasing artists from Canada and beyond with a strong belief that there will be fewer restrictions for international performers entering the country. LOUD AS HELL event organizers will be closely monitoring guidelines and updates from Alberta’s provincial government.
LOUD AS HELL has hosted hundreds of Canadian and international bands annually since the first metal jamboree in 2012 with exception of 2020 due to the Covid pandemic.

What the press is saying:
“Western Canada’s loudest heavy metal festival brings fans to town more known for dinos than drum solos.” – CBC Calgary
“Loud as Hell – one of Canada’s top underground metal festivals – was a metal family reunion. If you walked around the grounds, where tents covered the landscape like flowers, you would experience concert goers laughing, hugging and just enjoying the moment. The music played non-stop and the people were some of the best you’ll meet. What else do you need? If you’re a metalhead fan, mark it down for next year because this is a concert you don’t want to miss.” – Blackfalds Life
“Headbanger alert: Loud As Hell festival to ramp up the volume” – Calgary Herald
“Nevermind the bug spray and sun tan lotion, as August approaches Drumheller residents should stock up on earplugs.” – Calgary Herald
“Loud As Hell returns to the southern Alberta city for its seventh year and as its name implies, will rock the city to its core.” – Calgary Herald
“Loud as Hell has celebrated eight years in the Badlands to date, with acts from all over the world-shattering the peace and quiet of the hills in a camping and music extravaganza.” – Hanna Herald
“Drumheller with its dinosaur bones is the site of the annual Loud as Hell heavy metal festival Friday through Sunday. Dozens of the heaviest bands known to Man will be taking the stage, many of them Canadian” – Gig City
