Sled Island is an annual four-day independent music and arts festival in Calgary and will bring together over 200 artists and bands in more than 25 venues throughout the city. Audiences at Sled Island 2014 will be treated to seeing acclaimed performers in unique venues, and experiencing bands that typically play larger venues in intimate settings. The party continues after the shows finish, with after parties keeping people up and dancing late into the night. Art and film components of Sled Island will launch on the evening of June 20. Since 2007, Sled Island’s innovative, eclectic programming and independent spirit have combined with Calgary’s youthful energy to produce a festival that now attracts a diverse and global audience, is praised by local and international artists, and was recently voted one of the top 10 music festivals in Canada by listeners of CBC Radio 3.
