Henry Rollins, Propagandhi, Dimmu Borgir, Lamb of God, Tenacious D, and many more join the Montebello Rockfest 2018 lineup.

This year’s edition of Montebello Rockfest features some big hits on both the punk and metal fronts, along with a few other surprises. A large contingent of Ottawa fans always make the hour long trip, and this year will be no different. Though presenting fewer acts than past years, organizers say this will ensure all bands have longer set times, and will make for fewer schedule conflicts which cause fans to miss bands playing at the same time.

Headliners announced today include Prophets of Rage (featuring members of Rage Against the Machine and Cypress Hill), Five Finger Death Punch, and Weezer. Punk fans will be delighted to hear that Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, and Rancid will all be at the 2018 edition.

Other notables include Godsmack, frontman Jack Black and the rest of Tenacious D, pop-moshers, A Day To Remember, Stone Temple Pilots, Jimmy Eat World, The Used, Streetlight Manifesto, and All Time Low.

Visit for the full lineup and info about camping. Montebello Rockfest is running for one weekend June 14–16, 2018. Passes cost $99–149 online.
