Toaster is an all-original, good time, three-piece, punch you in the face, heavy punk rock band from Castlegar. Fresh off their fire Jalopy Parade appearance, they’ll make their highly anticipated Massif debut!
Back when Massif was just a twinkle in our founders’ eyes, the Nelson & District Credit Union believed in our vision and supported us to launch our first event. Six years later, the NDCU has stuck with us and backed us every year, just like they do numerous initiatives in our community. Thank you, NDCU!
What do you get when you combine Dead Quiet, Barn Burner, Heron and Brass? This isn’t a rhetorical question. Members of those bands have come together to form Fearbirds, and the hardcore heavyweights from Vancouver are, frankly, devastating.
Rumor has it this is only their second show (!), so if you were lucky enough to buy Massif tickets, you’re getting in on the ground floor of this enterprise.
Join the flock on Instagram, and catch a glimpse of Fearbirds in action on YouTube.
Massif 2022 is presented by Nelson Brewing Company.
Nelson Brewing Company has been a supporter, sponsor and main presenter of Massif since its inception, and we’re delighted to continue that tradition of partnership in 2022! The organic ales NBC produces are as much a product of Nelson as the talent that Massif focuses on—homegrown, bold and with a nod to our wonderful subculture.
Massif will feature two beers from NBC this year: the Valhalla Pale Ale and the brand-new Loki Lager.
The Valhalla Pale Ale is a well-balanced organic hazy pale ale. Notes of tropical fruit, papaya and mango from the Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra dry hops. Malted wheat and oats give this beer its smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It finishes with hints of sweet malt and caramel, giving it that balanced backbone.
Brewed in the Queen City to be the queen of beers, the Loki Lager is easy drinking epitomized. A classic craft lager reimagined to be as epic as its namesake. It’s crisp, it’s clean and it tastes like beer should. Low-key but unforgettable.
We are thankful for NBC’s support and continued partnership! Come enjoy a brew at Massif this year or go grab one now!
There are no words to describe the mastery of Brass. The Vancouver five-piece has crafted hardcore punk into an art form that turns the crowd into a sweaty, joyful mess. We’re delighted to welcome them back to Massif!
RadDog channels the mountain air of Ymir and Salmo into psychedelic punk rock that reverberates through the hills. Dual drummers pound out a bedrock beat beneath a forest of lush guitars, gritty bass and four-part vocals.
The Corps aren’t the heroes we deserve, but they’re the heroes we need in these turbulent times. The Vancouver punks strike down enemies with a flurry of flying riffs, restoring peace to the land and setting the stage for an epic set at Massif!
