I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, tourists like the Calgary Stampede, Calgarians wait the extra week and share their love for The Calgary Folk Music Festival instead.
Today, Calgary’s best festival launched their entire line up for the weekend that will take place on July 21 to July 24th at Princes Island Park.
I’m still sorting through the press releases but here are some of the bands that have already got me planning my tarp strategy. (Tarp reference explained: Unless you have a tarp, it’s essentially impossible to secure a spot for the four day musical festival. I learned that the hard way last year!)
Some Calgary Folk Musical Festival highlights include:
New Brunswick’s Matt Anderson.
Nova Scotia’s Joel Plaskett
From Montreal, Patrick Watson
Ontario’s Blue Rodeo
Also from Ontario, City and Colour
And of course, k.d Lang!
Tickets are on sale now!
