June 22 – 25
Now five years running, indie and alternative music fans rule the roost for four days every June at Sled Island. The festival has had a knack for offering a diverse range of music by promoting local Calgary acts like Woodpigeon and Chad VanGaalen as well as international stars, like Dinosaur Jr. and Cat Power. This year, English punk legends The Buzzcocks and American rockers Blonde Redhead headline the festival. Various venues, visit www.sledisland.com for tickets.
