The festival will be taking place over two days and will have a main headliner for both days: Slipknot will head on Saturday, August 11, and System of a Down will head on Sunday, August 12. The supporting acts are as follows, while more could still be added as it draws nearer:

So far, the line-up is insanely sick- I just wish I could go!

Tickets can be purchased here, and are priced as the following:

Tickets for the Toronto festival are $145 for the weekend; $155 for a “special edition ticket” and $500 for the Live Nation Lounge Platinum Weekend Pass (inc. private bar, restrooms, complimentary food and parking, bleacher seating with premium views of both stages, and more). Service charges and charity fee will be added to all tickets.

This festival will coincide with the Heavy MTL event, which takes place in Montreal the same weekend and features the same bands, but on opposite days. Go here for more information.
