The 10th anniversary edition of Amnesia Rockfest in Montebello, Que., is celebrating with performances from late 1990s favourites Deftones, System Of A Down, Linkin Park and The Offspring, among others.

The music festival takes place from June 18 to 20, 2015 with camping available until June 21.

  • Slayer.
  • Snoop Dogg.
  • Rob Zombie.
  • Tenacious D.
  • Pixies.
  • Rancid.
  • Bad Religion.
  • Thrice.

The festival made headlines in 2013 after attendees complained that the festival site and infrastructure couldn't handle the crowds.

It announced changes last year that improved the experience for concert-goers, though there were still some complaints.

This year, the festival vows even more changes.

"Several changes will be announced in March concerning transportation, parking and camping in order to accommodate the growing number of festival-goers each year," the festival said in a media release. 

"This will include new public transportation options being offered, as well as a new VIP campground and a campground for RV’s and trailers."
