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.

We have an amazing lineup of concerts for you this fall, #yyc! Check our website for dates and get your tickets now. (Hint: some of these are sure to sell out!) ✨ https://t.co/Bl3VPPdWxK ✨

Throwing back to #CFMF40 we had so many favourite moments it's hard to just choose one but @SheilaEdrummer stepping into the crowd is certainly top of the list. What are some of yours?

@GrantStovel @ckuaradio Sad to hear that but very grateful for the memories with @maunomusicband at #CFMF40 this year! Thank you for sharing your music with us!

There was lots of great talent @calgaryfolkfest, solid performances from veteran acts to magnificent surprises. @beatroutebc reports from the scene REVIEW: Calgary Folk Music Fest Celebrates Triumphant 40th Anniversary With Top-Tier Talent https://t.co/GsjtIMGTHi

Many thanks to DJs at @CJSW and @ckuaradio who’ve been playing our version of “Wicked Game” from the @calgaryfolkfest 40th Anniversary LP Cover Art. Every time you do my phone lights up with texts from people who were listening. Most airplay we’ve received locally in a long time.
