Linkin Park headlining Amnesia Rockfest 2015

Linkin Park will be headlining this year's Amnesia Rockfest in Montebello, Quebec, Canada. The festival takes place between June 18 and June 21 and Linkin Park will headline night one on June 19th. System Of A Down will also headline on another day of the festival. This will the band's first time performing at the festival and their first performance in Montebello. Since the shows in Hamilton, Saskatoon, Calgary, and Edmonton were cancelled due to Chester's leg injury, this will be the band's first performance in Canada this year!

The Amnesia Rockfest is considered the biggest rock festival in Canada, and this will be it's 10th anniversary (it began in 2005). Other artists performing at the festival include The Offspring (performing their album Americana), Deftones, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Tenacious D, and many more.

Who's planning on attending? In a recent LPU Chat, Mike revealed that more show announcements will be coming soon and the band is booked for the rest of the year (which is why they haven't rescheduled the Winter North American Tour). Read a summary of the chat on MikeShinodaClan.com here.

 

The band will likely not perform on June 18th, as they are rumored to be playing the Live Earth concert on June 18, but the festival FAQ says that the festival will be mainly held on June 19th and 20th anyway. Other rumors for festival shows include New Jersey and Kansas. Check out an outline for Linkin Park's rumored touring schedule for the rest of the year here.

EDIT: Linkin Park confirms that they will be headlining night one on June 19th.

Holy lineup. Deftones playing Around The Fur in full, and lots of gems here. Is this the first Thrice comeback show? I've been following them and haven't seen them announce anything yet, wow. Big news.

 

Gogol Bordello, so good. Story Of The Year, wow. Huge fan of this lineup.

So...no Live Earth this time?

 

Live Earth is on June 18th, the day before LP plays. Seems likely they'll play, especially since Live Earth will have a northeast USA event.

Lots of bands performing full versions of their albums, wow. Would be an interesting opportunity to whip out HT again.

They probably asked LP to do an album in full (who wouldn't? since so many others are doing it) and likely couldn't come up with the cash for it. I'm sure whatever LP got from Download was insane.
