What bands say

Rockalypse is literally the best event in Montreal. It has given us a lot of opportunities such as touring in Italy, playing in front of a big audience, working with an awesome crew, meeting new bands and people from the music industry. 

- Francis, Third Place

Participating to Rockalypse is totally worth it, no matter what the outcome is. Our experience in Italy was just perfect, the food, iconic sites, people. The shows were exactly what we imagined them to be, great sound techs, great crowds. We had the time of our lives and we will never forget it. 

- Adam, Starstruck Avenue

Kudos to the organizers and the sound technicians because the whole night went like clockwork and the overall quality of both the sound and visual presentation, considering the nine stylistically different bands, were amazing.

- Ben, Bucketlist Music Reviews
