Foo fighters at heavy ? Not quite the kind of crowd that listens to them IMO.

Off-topic, but that's some serious beer snobbery if you look down your nose at Unibroue. They are pretty well universally-respected here in the U.S. microbrew scene.

I guess we're just so used to it. But Unibroue products are indeed pretty high standard.

Their U brand is bland. But LFDM and Blanche de Chambly are amongst the very best of their genre. The Blanche is probably the best Wit. LFDM is a top-10 Tripel.

There's talk of adding more hard rock bands this year to sell more tickets to a bigger audience. If this means we get bands like soundgarden and alice in chains I'm fine with that but it worries me that a band like foo fighters would be added because they are a huge act. Like headliner big.

if foo fighters play they will headline.
and would be terrible news for metal fans.
seriously it seems the Rockfest will end up killing Heavy MTL.

i like the band but they should be playing in Montebello, like Offspirng last year. not in the metal festival.

I'm pretty sure not sure but pretty sure billy talent was there the one year not even close to metal.

Yeah, I was a bit outraged by this post. Boréale probably clouded the comment, but Unibroue is well respected. I'm a proud Chamblyen AND montrealer from the south west. I was born and raised in beer.

Beer talk!

I agree with your general sentiment, but even as far as Canadian macros go, I like Boreale. Miles ahead of Molson, Labatt, all that garbage.

And even then, the Boréale IPA is actually pretty good, and is a great everyday beer at 8,49 for the six-pack.

MrB - You're from Chambly ? The Bedondaine had a weird one this week. BBQ peanuts brown ale... Yep. Pretty interesting.

A music OT thread derailing on beer discussion in waiting for the lineups to be announced. How predictable !

For those who missed the annoncement of change for Heavy MTL


le festival Heavy Mtl a accueilli 38 000 festivaliers, c’est-à-dire environ 6000 de moins que l’année d’avant. En entrevue, le vice-président et directeur général d’evenko, Jacques Aubé, confie que certains changements seront apportés au festival. «On est en train de changer un peu l’orientation. Heavy MTL va devenir un peu plus rock. Il va y avoir du changement. On va annoncer ça bientôt», a-t-il laissé savoir. La popularité du Rockfest, maintenant associé au Festival d’été de Québec, ne semble toutefois pas le préoccuper. «Je ne les vois pas comme des concurrents. C’est à une autre période, à un autre endroit et on offre chacun quelque chose de différent», souligne-t-il.

If I were a fan of Heavy MTL as it were, I'd be pretty disheartened. Basically they're saying "metal doesn't sell enough, so we need to bring in more popular bands".

Sigh..... I hope they don't ruin what has become the best weekend of the summer since it started. I'm worried to see the line up Monday.

Yeah, I am. Didn't go to Bedondaine in a long time though, since I'm at school in Montreal.

I don't think its the metal that doesn't sell.

It's the crappy generic core bands that don't.

Two years in a row I didn't go because it's basically 20-25 core bands with like 5-6 worthwhile bands. That and the prices are high for such a festival of core bands.

Metal sells all over the world, look at germany.

Metallica reported headlining Heavy.

Prices go up, I'm still happy.

To anyone who's going to cry, please just go see them once.
