Western Canada’s decibel-breaking festival LOUD AS HELL is proud to announce its line-up for its return in 2021 at the roaring Dinosaur Downs Stampede Grounds in Drumheller, AB from July 30th to August 1st.
The 2021 line-up features an assortment of Western Canada’s top-tier artists over three headbanging days with main headliners Into Eternity (Saturday, July 31st), Planet Eater (Friday, July 30th) and Arrival of Autumn (Sunday, Aug 1st). This year’s line-up is 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 pre-cautions.
Loud As Hell organizer Geoff Bourrie comments:
“We are overwhelmed with the positive response we have been getting for the festival this year. We are very proud to offer the platform to help kickstart the live metal scene here in Western Canada. This will be a special year for us coming back from such a challenging 2020. Loud As Hell lives! We are back! And we are ready!”

Like many music events across Canada, Loud As Hell‘s 2020 production was forced to cancel due to the COVID pandemic. It was scheduled to be their 9th consecutive concert since the first metal jamboree in 2012. Over the years, the festival has hosted hundreds of Canadian and international bands in the prairie badlands. The 2019 edition of Loud As Hell sold out and melted faces off of metalheads who assembled from across the country for its 40 band line-up, which featured Goatwhore, Anciients, Planet Eater, Untimely Demise, Arrival of Autumn.
Loud As Hell event organizers were closely monitoring guidelines and updates from Alberta’s provincial government. The most recent announcement from officials to fully open up the province as of July 1st as part of their Stage 3 planning that states the following:
Stage 3: Two weeks after 70% of Albertans 12+ (born in 2009 or earlier) have received at least one dose. Effective July 1st.
All restrictions lifted, including the ban on indoor social gatherings.
Isolation requirements for confirmed cases of COVID-19 and some protective measures in continuing care settings remain.
The general indoor provincial mask mandate will be lifted, but masking may still be required in limited and specific settings.
More information will be shared prior to the start of Stage 3.
