Festival organizer Joey Hockin of Journeyman Productions comments:
“We’re keeping the hype going and rolling out the lineup for Hyperspace Metal Festival IV! This year’s festival was really special and we’re going to one up it next year with the mighty Exmortus headlining! We’re also excited to finally welcome Striker to the Hyperspace family after years of trying to get them on our stage. Next year’s festival is going to be epic and there are still more bands to be announced! We hope you make the trip to our city to join us for this weekend of melodic metal and epic times!”

Hyperspace Metal Festival 2023 Lineup:
Lords of The Trident
Highlights of the confirmed bands include American melodic death metal band Exmortus, whose lyrics mostly deal with battles and war along with Striker, one of Canada’s favourite heavy metal shredders and 2020 Juno award winners for Best Metal / Hard Music Album of The Year for their sixth studio album “Play To Win”. Tucson, AZ’s Judicator is returning for their second performance at the festival with their historical-based storytelling metal.
