Farmageddon Open- Air was conceived in 2012 by Tyson Travnik whom is recognized in the Alberta metal scene through sound engineering duties and promotional services. After noticing the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise, Travnik wanted to re-create the intimate setting and host a festival with no internal borders in the Edmonton area.
After two very successful years, Farmageddon Open Air has proven to be one of the most prestigious metal open-air festivals in Canada with quality production that has been highly regarded by bands and patrons alike. The festival falls into a special category with Travnik setting goals of bringing in top-shelf bands that rarely, if ever play Canada. The costs of doing so are reflected in the ticket price with maximum attendance numbers not being something on the agenda. Keeping an intimate setting between the bands and their fans along with growth of the metal sub-culture to aid in promoting some of the hardest working bands in the country is at the forefront of Farmageddon’s priority.
Each year, the festival has hosted over 30 bands, with the request reaching as far as Europe and Asia. Farmageddon prides itself in only selecting the bands that the organizers feel have proven themselves worthy of the festival. This is not based on show attendance figures, but rather by judging the work ethic of the band throughout the previous year. With many new features and additions planned for Farmageddon 2015, organizers are pushing forward to double the attendance numbers from 2014.
2014 Line Up included:
Havok, Wretched, Dark Forest, Sanktuary, Psychotic Gardening, Death Toll Rising, Tyrant’s Demise, Eyam, Without Mercy, Scimitar, Scythia, Vile Insignia, Kyoktys, Gatekrashor, , Kryosphere, Eye Of Horus, Mortillery, Ironstorm, Moosifix, Bloated Pig, Armifera, Witch Of The Waste, Monarch Sky, Druidus, Skymir, Hazzerd, Cryptosis, Gales Of Avalon, Mongol, Riot City, Display Of Decay, After Earth, Demise Without Reason, Grendel’s Awakening, Last Horizon, Idolatry, Bleed
