Prairie Fire Events Ltd is proud to announce the 2017 lineup for Edmonton, AB's loudest indoor metal festival and conference, Shredmonton.

Featuring some of the heaviest acts from across Canada to rumble the Alberta prairies, this year's festival will be headlined by Vancouver power titans Unleash The Archers, Winnipeg's doom funeral Psychotic Gardening, and Edmonton gore masters Bleed from Friday, May 12th to Sunday, May 14ththat the Mercury Room (full band list below).

This year's festival also features an ALL AGES event on the Sunday date, as well as the return of the all-ages industry conference aspect, which includes panels on publicity & promotion, festival booking plus vocal, guitar and recording / live sound clinics.

ShrEdmonton organizer Tyson Travnik comments: "We're very proud to be able to focus this year's festival on showcasing bands that we feel have supported past Canadian festivals plus helped their local scenes flourish. Focusing on keeping this year's experience intimate, yet retaining top-shelf quality is something that I think will set 2017 apart from events we've done in the past."
