LOUD AS HELL 2023 will be celebrating its eleventh festival event presented by Loud As Hell Productions, Jurassic Ink Custom Tattoo, Prairie Fire Events, and Asher Media Relations. LAH always works its hardest to deliver the best lineup in the West ready to melt your face off. Featuring bands from across Canada, you won’t want to miss any of it. And don’t forget about their freak shows, burlesque dancers, clinics, vendors, and dinosaurs!

For LAH’s 2022 lineup, the music event featured an assortment of forty top-tier artists from Western Canada over three headbanging days that included Vancouver’s AngelMaker, Neck of The Woods, and Carcosa, a reunion set by Montreal metalcore titans Endast along with a rare appearance from Calgary’s prog squad Divinity.
The sold-out 2022 lineup was scaled down to only Canadian bands due to international artists being unable to perform in the country because of border restrictions and guidelines stated by the federal government for Covid precautions.
