Sled Island Music and Arts Festival 2017

Sled Island is an annual five-day music and arts festival in Calgary, Alberta, that brings together over 250 bands, comedians, filmmakers and artists in more than 35 venues across the city. Since 2007, Sled Island's thoughtful, eclectic programming and independent spirit have fused with Calgary's youthful energy to produce a one-of-a-kind festival experience. Visit SledIsland.com for more information.

"For those from Calgary, Sled Island is a week that sees venues pulsing with activity, drawing a range of Canadian talent and international touring acts often making their first appearance in the city." - Consequence Of Sound

"Your experience can be as intimate, muted or rambunctious as you want it to be. Any musical taste can be sated with hundreds of acts in dozens of venues over five days." - Pretty Much Amazing

"Sled felt like the perfect size, with just enough options to be exciting but retaining individual showcases that you could truly enjoy from start to finish." - Chart Attack

"The tenth annual Sled Island festival gave me a firsthand look at how Canadian goodwill emboldens the artistic community." - Noisey

"The best part of Sled Island, aside from the fact everyone is now your friend, is stumbling into a ton of great bands one wouldn't see in their everyday trajectory." - Vue Weekly
