Jagermeister Rocks Heavy TO & MTL

Metalheads heading to the Heavy TO and Heavy MTL festivals can enjoy one hell of a party courtesy of Jägermeister. (Because doesn’t Jager always lead to one hell of a party?)

The good folks at Jäger will be hitting to the two festivals, which will run at Toronto’s Downsview Park and Montreal’s Parc Jean-Drapeau on August 11 and 12, to provide festival goers with music, booze and much more.

There will be a Jäger stage at each festival featuring Toronto’s Diemonds (Pictured), Dance Laury Dance, So Sick Social Club and many more alongside System of a Down, Slipknot, (Geez, these guys are still around?) Marilyn Manson (Him too?) and Deftones . Festival attendees will have the opportunity to hang out in Jäger World, which will feature autograph sessions with Heavy artists, ice-cold shots of Jägermeister and Jägerettes.

Some of the other highlights include;

– A branded backstage area for artists and media alike

– Hot tub photo opt with the sexy Jägerettes

– A custom Jager ice luge serving up ice-cold shots of Jäger
