Calgary Folk Music Fest starts today!
There are so many amazing musicians, artists, and venues that come together to create the BEST weekend on Prince’s Island Park. We have been anxiously counting down 365 days since we had to say goodbye to Calgary Folk Fest 2016. We cannot be more excited to welcome Calgary Folk Fest 2017 starting tonight, July 27th, that will be continuing throughout the weekend. We are proud to be the official backline supplier of the Calgary Folk Music Festival. Our team and gear will be across all seven of the park stages, I’m sure you’ll catch a glimpse.
We will be on the grounds of the park every day supporting CFMF’s amazing artists. I am most excited to see Coeur de pirate, Basis Bulat, Michael Kiwanauka, City and Colour, Holy F*ck, Langhorne Slim, Barenaked Ladies, Blue Rodeo, just to name a few. There is such a wide variety of talent for everyone! You may even discover your next favourite artist.
Calgary Folk Festival Fun For Everyone!
Did you know that Calgary Folk Festival is a family friendly event? Everyone under the age of 12 gets free entry. To keep the little ones busy during sets, be sure to stop by the Family Zone for games and crafts. There are a wide variety of local food trucks and grub in the center of the island to keep you, and your little ones happy and full of energy. For the Elder Folkers (18+), pay a visit Calgary’s own Big Rock Beer Garden to try a limited edition CFMF brew. Or check out the amazing work by local artisans at the Artisan Market on the north side of the island.
Thank You for your Support!
We are so proud to be able to support the Calgary Folk Festival 2017, and supporting all of the amazing artists that will be gracing the stages over the weekend. Be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated in this heat wave that we have been experiencing, and a rain jacket to beat the unpredictable. We know it won’t be anything a fellow CFMF can’t handle.
From KLM Backline, we wish everyone a safe and folk filled weekend!
