Rammstein Announced for the 12th Montebello RockFest!
PLUS: THE OFFSPRING WILL BE BACK
Montebello, Tuesday, Dec. 6 2016 – The Outaouais Rock team is proud to reveal that Rammstein will be at the 12th edition of Amnesia Rockfest, the largest rock music festival in Canada, to be held June 22-25, 2017 at the marina of Montebello, Quebec. The German group – one of the largest rock bands in the world – will be performing their first North American show of the year at the festival and it will be their sole Canadian performance of 2017.
“I am extremely proud to welcome Rammstein in my little hometown. Their show is larger than life, over the top, pure madness, the biggest show on Earth right now. This is Rockfest’s biggest catch in our 12-year run, a statement proving that the festival has reached a new level.” – Alex Martel, founder of Rockfest.
On the punk-rock side, The Offspring from California will be back in Montebello to perform “Ixnay On The Hombre” in its entirety for the 20th anniversary of the album. The members of the band – regulars and long-time friends of the festival – are still going strong 30 years after getting together, and they hold a special place in the hearts of Quebecers.

Rammstein formed in 1994 in former East Germany. They released six albums and have sold over 20 million records in the course of their career. The band quickly gained a reputation for their highly theatrical, larger-than-life, fireworks-filled performances. In 1997, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor included two Rammstein songs on the soundtrack for David Lynch’s film Lost Highway, a move that gave the band exposure in America. The song Du Hast increased that exposure soon after. While they were tremendously successful and selling out stadiums throughout the world, Rammstein took a break from playing concerts in North America for nearly ten years, and then make a triumphant return in 2010. Though currently at the peak of their popularity, Rammstein are performing less often, which turns each concert into a unique event. www.rammstein.com
