July 21 – 24
Every July, Calgarians flood Prince’s Island Park for four days of live music at the Calgary Folk Music Festival. Although its name suggests only folksy, acoustic performances, expect a tapestry of genres including country, blues, soul, indie, bluegrass, hip-hop and alternative. In all, there are 68 artists from 14 countries playing on seven stages throughout the day, including evening headliners K.D. Lang and Blue Rodeo. For tickets, call 403-233-0904, or purchase at the gate.
