Sled Island Announces Full Lineup

by JaronW · 1 comment

The whole shebang has been dropped and it’s a sight to be seen. More than 200 performers will take on multiple venues in late June, transforming Olympic Plaza and most of Downtown Calgary and the Beltline in to a miniature Coachella (no word on holograms). 

Take a look at the lineup and don’t worry if you haven’t heard of any of the announced bands, some great local bands (some that have just formed) will be supporting the big names coming in from places like Toronto, New York City, Los Angeles, Montreal and beyond. Perhaps you will find your new favourite band accidentally while checking out another artist, getting out there and discovering new music is an important part of Sled Island.

You can get the whole lineup on the Sled Island website, where they will be profiling a number of the different artists and bands making the trip to Calgary for this exciting summer party.
