Events Description

 

Throughout the year, we’ve been collecting video content from local and international artists, and now we are very excited to finally share them on the big screen. With three unique nights of programming, you can expect pre-recorded performances, film screenings, special guest video appearances, snacks from Via Convenience, beer service courtesy of Eighty-Eight Brewing, and even live music (if restrictions allow).

For this year’s event, we’ve commissioned some of our favourite Calgary artists to film very special one-of-a-kind performances, each with a unique concept and location, and it’s all exclusive to Sled Island! Think recorded performances aren’t that exciting? We might just be able to change your mind. Come see what kind of magic happens when industrial noise punks DRI HIEV, feminist post-punks Slut Prophet, hip-hop connoisseur TeaFannie, indie psych mainstays Sunglaciers, experimental improv collective Bug Incision, old-timey country singer-songwriter Amy Nelson and funky punk four-piece Hairnet are given the resources to execute their vision. Not only that, but these video performances are the first of an ongoing effort from Sled Island to properly document Calgary’s incredible, often under-heard music community, so you can expect a lot more to come.
