Apocalyptic Blues

Burgers, Bands, Beers… BURGER FEST 2016 is Here!

At long last, the illustrious lineup for this year’s edition of Vancouver’s own feel-good hit-of-the-summer-party, Burger Fest, is announced. Undisputably the heaviest bill in the annual event’s history, in its sixth year Burger Fest takes its mantra of “Burgers, Bands, Beers” to a whole new level of crushing, with more internationally touring acts joining the roster than any year prior. Presented by Black River Productions, Art Signified, and Apocalypse Sunrise, Burger Fest Vol 6 returns to last year’s stomping grounds at the Waldorf Hotel. Bringing 18 bands to two stages, the day-long event constitutes the most sensible thing for any fan of aggressive music to do in Vancouver on Saturday, August 13th 2016. Easily the most crushing bill presented to date, Burger Fest Vol 6 will be co-headlined by Lord Dying and Wild Throne.
