From the ethereal strings and brassy horns of the orchestra, to the booming beats of the latest DJs and everything in between. Downtown Calgary has music covered.
Come downtown to experience a wide variety of buskers and outdoor music festivals. A few of the festivals to look forward to are the Sled Island Music Festival (June), Calgary International Folk Festival (July), Calgary International Blues Festival (August).
Downtown Calgary also has an eclectic variety of location for live music from Jazz at WINE-OHS, live bands in the basement of the Palomino to DJ events at Flames Central. You can also catch the occasional rock show at the Royal Canadian Legion, or if classical is more your style be sure to visit the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.
