WTFest Music Festival Announces 2016 Lineup Featuring Billy Talent, Monster Truck, Saint Asonia on June 25th in Brantford

Brantford's biggest music festival, WTFest returns on June 25th, 2016 at Lions Park. The second year festival is set to feature an incredible onsite event headlined by Canadian hard rock outfit Billy Talent with support from Hamilton rockers Monster Truck. The WTFest main stage will also feature performances by Saint Asonia, the rock supergroup featuring ex-¬Three Days Grace vocalist Adam Gontier, as well as The Standstills who have previously won the coveted 97.7 HTZ-FM Rock search contest. The festival will expand to include a second stage featuring some of the best up and coming bands from across southern Ontario. WTFest will kick off on June 24th, 2016 with a free show at Harmony Square in Downtown Brantford with a headliner to be announced at a later date. Tickets for the show are now available for $39.99 online at www.wtfest.ca with ticket selling locations coming soon.

WTFest is launching their second battle of the bands competition with select shows planned in spring 2016 across the region. The winner from each regional competition will perform at the June 24th show at Harmony Square, and one winner earning them an opening slot on the festival main stage the following day.

"We had an amazing fan reaction last year when we launched WTFest in Brantford. We continuously asked the fans who they would want to see this year, and our two most requested bands were Billy Talent and Monster Truck," said WTFest president Jamie Stephens. "We heard loud and clear from fans that they wanted a big rock show, so we brought in Billy Talent, Monster Truck and Saint Asonia to give them the biggest rock show in southern Ontario this summer."

Billy Talent is a Juno Award¬ winning Canadian rock band formed in 1993. The band has released four studio albums and is gearing up for the release of their fifth album in the summer of 2016. Equipped with countless awards (such as multiple MuchMusic Awards, JUNO Awards, and MTV Awards) and having played the biggest festival stages worldwide, Billy Talent are ready to take on their next mission: to complete their world domination.

Canadian rockers Monster Truck came roaring out of Hamilton, Ontario, a couple of years ago with their 2013 full¬ length debut "Furiosity". The album debuted at #13 on the Top 200 SoundScan chart, and earned the band two #1 singles at Canadian rock radio. The crushing first single "Sweet Mountain River" became the #1 most¬ played song at Canadian Active Rock Radio in 2013, held the #1 spot at Active Rock, Rock and Mainstream Rock radio for eight weeks. Now they're back with "Sittin' Heavy", their sophomore effort, which will be released on February 19th on Dine Alone Records in North America.

Saint Asonia, which also features Staind guitarist Mike Mushok, former Finger Eleven drummer Rich Beddoe, and bassist Corey Lowery (Eye Empire, Stereomud, Dark New Day), released their self-titled effort on RCA Records. The album was recorded with producer Johnny K at his Groovemaster Studios in Chicago and has produced the monster rock radio hit "Better Place".

WTFest launched in 2015, as a two¬-day outdoor music festival in Brantford, Ontario headlined by Big Wreck, Hedley and featured performances by The Trews, I Mother Earth, and USS. The festival is the brainchild of Jamie Stephens from JSE Events, and Lance and Mark Calbeck from Calbeck Investments, who launched WTFest in an effort to bring a major music festival back to the "Telephone City". The first year festival attracted a crowd of over 7,000 fans and fans have been eagerly awaiting the announcement 2016 lineup.
