JULY 27 - 30

Where Calgary - - YOU ARE HERE -

For those who like their mu­sic on the folkier side, the

CALGARY FOLK MU­SIC FES­TI­VAL (page 36) re­turns to Prince’s Is­land Park from July 27 to 30. As al­ways, the pro­gram­ming skews to­wards an “a lit­tle bit of ev­ery­thing” phi­los­o­phy, with artists like Blue Rodeo, City and Colour,

Bare­naked Ladies, and Ba­sia Bu­lat ap­pear­ing on the main stage and dozens of other bands play­ing the many side stages scat­tered through­out the is­land.

“The Fes­ti­val’s bu­colic set­ting, pro­gram­ming di­ver­sity and com­mu­nity-based, egal­i­tar­ian at­mos­phere and phi­los­o­phy mean that all ages, cul­tures, back­grounds, and tastes hap­pily co-ex­ist,” says artis­tic di­rec­tor Kerry Clarke. “The site is like a small town of 13,000 a day that also in­cludes cre­ative ar­ti­sans and the op­por­tu­nity to chill in the fam­ily zone.”
