This year the Vancouver Island Metal Festival is totally free of charge. There are no tickets. For any of the events. Last year we experimented with the inclusion of free concerts in Centennial Square, and this year we have decided to try and make the pub shows free of charge as well. This is just an experiment, and there is no guarantee that any future iterations of VIMF will be free. But for now, enjoy!
If you would like, The Vancouver Island Metal Festival Society does accept, and appreciate donations. It’s the registered non-profit organization that runs the Vancouver Island Metal Festival, as well as many other shows that happen throughout the year.
