DECIMATE Music Festival is the brainchild of Sloan Voxx of Voxx Promotions, which is destined to become an annual Canadian metal and rock pilgrimage to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. With the many yearly festivals becoming part of the national metal and rock heritage, Sloan wants DECIMATE Music Festival to become one of the best-known events alongside the various festivals located within Alberta, and Western Canada. With Voxx Promos booking and promotional experience, and the support of metal and rock fans internationally, there is nothing to stop them from reaching their goal of bringing in the masses and putting on incredible metal and rock festivals for years to come!”

Last year’s inaugural event proved to be a great success showcasing four full nights of metal and rock with bands from all over Canada and parts of the USA!

As part of their fundraising initiative, DECIMATE Music Festival was also able to donate $685.00 to The Cochrane Women’s Shelter in memory of Bob Campbell.
