Calgary Folk Music Festival – Calgary Folk Fest 2019

July 25 @ 11:00 am - July 28 @ 9:00 pm

Calgary Folk Festival 2019 - 40th Anniversary

Calgary Folk Music Festival is an annual three-day showcase presenting a far-reaching spectrum of music genres, such as free jazz, post-punk, world music, experimental hip-hop, and improvised music, during the dates of July 25-28, 2019 at Prince’s Island Calgary.

With +65 artists in 8 stages, let the music take you to another place at the 40th Annual Calgary Folk Music Festival. Surreal perfection: a town where independent songwriters, roots and country veterans and blues masters rub elbows with the divas of global electronics, Latin rhythm masters, Ukrainian rock bands and Congolese hipsters.

Where collaborations on the fly create unique magic in life. All in the green urban environment of Prince’s Island that bases a community for a relaxed, affectionate and ecologically day. We have great wind power and a hot main stage, an interactive family area, an international craft market, world culinary delights, a record store and an outdoor beer garden.

Fridays are for dancing like no ones watching — even if all eyes are on you on ATB Mainstage! 💃🏽

"For more than 50 years, @RthompsonMusic's songwriting has been remarkable, from the gently bleak and lyrical ballads performed in folk clubs to the pounding, edgy and emotional stories of foreboding on his latest album." https://t.co/o9Sg1Lp7xC

See him live in #yyc on Oct 31!

"…switching between massive, prog-tinged orchestral rock and quiet sophisticated, story-focused folk, [Sufjan Stevens' Illinoise] is the most apt comparison point for this masterful work." https://t.co/0kLGGkpyLf

Simply orchestrated, St.Arnaud takes on themes of loss and resilience with sardonic humour and heart-on-the-sleeve honesty.
