After a year without a Montreal stop, the 2014 edition of the Vans Warped Tour included a Montreal date, and I was lucky enough to have the chance to attend. I had never been to Warped Tour before, but I really enjoyed the overall layout of the event, as it was so different from the Heavy Montreal set up I’ve become used to. Warped Tour really is an event that offers something for everyone.
The weekend of the 9th and 10th of August marked the 6th edition of the Heavy Montréal festival (formerly known as Heavy MTL) at Parc Jean-Drapeau. This year’s edition was arguably one of the biggest and best yet, having evolved to include a broader selection of styles (including punk and hard rock) in its lineup.
