Canada’s premier melodic and power metal festival HYPERSPACE Metal Festival returns for its 5th edition after selling out its first two of three nights during its 2023 event. Their forthcoming 2024 lineup is their most epic to date to be hosted from April 11th to 13th in Vancouver, BC at Rickshaw Theatre. The lineup features headliners Týr, Flotsam and Jetsam, and Skeletor along with TrollfestThe Dread Crew of Oddwood, Aether Realm, Iron Kingdom, and more performing over the three nights.

Festival organizer Joey Hockin of Journeyman Productions adds:

“Here we go with another Hyperspace Metal Festival, and this is the biggest one yet! I feel like this is a dream lineup for us, one that we’ve been working towards since the inception of the festival! Unfortunately, Transgressive has had to drop out of the lineup. We hope to have them in 2025! We couldn’t have come nearly this far without the incredible support we’ve received from the power metal community. So, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN! See you in April!”

Hailing from the Faroe Islands, Týr has been performing Viking and folk metal since first forming in 1998. The band will be supporting their upcoming 2024 album “Battle Ballads” being released by Metal Balde Records. The album follows their 2022 live record “A Night at the Nordic House” and their eighth full-length “Hel” (2019). Music Video – “Ragnars Kvæði” –

Legends in their own right, Phoenix, AZ’s Flotsam and Jetsam have been rumbling thrash around the world since their beginnings in the early 80s’ touring alongside every heavyweight known in metal. They have released fourteen studio albums in their career, with the latest being 2021’s Blood in the Water (AFM Records). No filler, all killer, “Blood in the Water” is once again mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (U.D.O.VolbeatAmaranthePowerwolf) and sees Flotsam and Jetsam exploding with creativity, moving forward but nodding to their past. Watch their music video “Brace For Impact” –

Seattle, WA’s Skelator are all speed and no need for posers with their epic heavy and thrash metal spirit conquering fans for 20 years. Over the span of their career, they have shared with fans six full-lengths and two EPs, their latest “Blood Empire” was released in 2022 from Gates of Hell Records. Music Video – “Good Day To Die” –

From Oslo, Norway, pioneers of true Norwegian Balkan Metal, Trollfest are all fun, with titles such as “All Drinks On Me”, “Piña Colada” “Twenty Mile and Hour” and “Flamingo Libre” among many many more from their 10 album discography.

Their latest album “Illusions” has gotten praise from across the metal community, My Global Mind has stated “Borealis have proven themselves to be one of the most consistent bands when it comes to producing excellent dark power/prog metal, and this album is no exception, standing as possibly their best work to date.
