Alex Martel started Rockfest when he was 17….. Its nine years later and last year 150,000 people showed up for bands ranging from Alice Cooper to The Transplants. It has a very big list of bands from Rock,Punk and Metal. Making it the largest Rock Festival in Canada. Montebello is normally a very small sleepy town but turns into Punk/Metal Woodstock on the weekend of June 21-21.
Personally its one of the best festivals Ive been to. The entire town is literally taken over. People camping on the church lawns to people selling sandwiches out of their cars on the side of the road. I will definitly be going this year and I hope to see you there!.
Take a listen to the chat I had with ALex Martel. I also posted the link to the website and a picture of the line up.
