About Days of The Dead Fest:
Halloween may be about putting on a costume and trick or treating around your city block, but in Red Deer, AB it's about so much more. The rumours in the area describe a mass pilgrimage, a collective gathering from across Alberta and beyond, a zombie mosh pit coming alive. Are the rumours true...? Well during the Days of The Dead Fest, a Heavy Metal Music Festival Costume Party Extravaganza takes over!
Founded in 2014 by local Red Deer resident and music scene contributor Justin Shadows of Shadows Productions plus vocalist of town favourites Leave The Living, DAYS OF THE DEAD Fest celebrates the heavy sounds of metal, punk and hardcore along with the ritual of transforming yourself in to another character during the Halloween weekend in October.
Now in its 4th year, Days of The Dead has grown to a three day event hosting over 30 bands from across Canada for both all ages and 18+ shows for a reunion of friends, music fans and a Halloween aficionados.
The full line up for DOTD 2017 is now ready and fully unleashed with headliners Ninjaspy, WAKE, Dusty Tucker, Without Mercy, West of Hell and more.
