Don't worry about sending an EPK right off the start! They are great to have, but not for AMF's initial submission; once a band is on the roster an EPK may be requested for media outlets.
Last year AMF had 162 band submissions!
69.4% of the total band line up for AMF 2016 was made of bands that had placed a band submission.
58.3% of AMF 2016's line up were bands that had never played the festival before. http://www.armstrongmetalfest.ca/
