With the news about the upcoming Woodstock 50th Anniversary Festival being somewhat up in the air based on reports that its been cancelled (discussed HERE) and then a counter statement by its founder that it will still happen (discussed HERE), its nice to see a brand-new music festival sending out some news. This is a bonafide Hard Rock and Classic Rock event and something that has a lot of artists that I am curious about so read more about it down below the logo. Enjoy.
The Press Release:
Thousands of music fans will gather this summer in Edenvale, Ontario, with views of the stunning Blue Mountain hills, 90 mins north of Toronto and 10 mins from Wasaga Beach for the first annual ROXODUS Festival – an epic four-day event running July 11-14, 2019.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t think I’ve been to Canada since I was visiting during a class trip in my school years and I’ve always wanted to go back. Perhaps this will be the perfect reason to pay another visit. I don’t know about you readers, but I will be making sure that my passport is still valid and start scrolling through my rolodex of “Friends Of PiercingMetal” to see who’s couch I can crash on or who feels like making a Rock and Roll Road Trip. What do you think about this new music festival news? Are you curious? Chime in down below and just in case you’re wondering, no one is talking about the Woodstock Festival issues past those two reports. It barely had any acts we follow here so I can’t say that I’d miss it but that is more news for a different post on a different day. Ciao for now.
