If you happen to be in the neighbourhood of Port Burwell, Ontario a couple weeks from now, want to get away from it all but don’t want to get away from the metal, why not consider attending the inaugural Southern Ontario Metalfest? Modeled after the grand tradition of European open air festivals, the SOMF is planning on terrorizing the placid Outback Campground (a place about an hour south of both London and Hamilton which my camping-happy wife informs me houses an “amazing beach”) with fans and bands, both of which could probably use the fresh air and sunlight. Come on up - or down, depending where you are in the world - and have a partially rustic good time. Don’t forget to say “Hey” to a certain Decibel contributor who’s going to be stage managing the side stage. More detailed details after the jump.
