Sled Island looks wicked killer. So killer I am not going to even make you click on a link to get the full line up. Just check it here. (Just in case you a)like clicking or b) don’t believe me here is the link) I have also made a lovely legend to show you what I think (side note – remember making legends in elementary…fun times):

$ = Local! Either Calgary, Edmonton or Lethbridge and all the small towns in between (disclaimer – I have decent musical knowledge of local acts but not extensive. If I miss one/two/ten let me know!)

* = I can’t wait to see. As in holding my breathe can’t wait to see.

^ = I have seen, they’re great. Life is gonna be awesome

  1. Hey, just to let you know, Snic, Christian Hansen and the Autistics, The City Streets, The Faunts, 7 and 7 is, The Wet Secrets, The Whitsundays, and Blind Tiger, Tiger (my band, incidentally) are from Edmonton. And Women and Heat Ray are from Calgary.

    Also, I listen obsessively to This American Life, and the Ghost of Bobby Dunbar episode you referenced a few posts ago blew my mind!

  2. Thanks Jessica! I made the necessary changes. Love all the local talent being shown.
    I got turned onto The American Life through a fellow blogger and am now obsessed. I guess I’ll be seeing you up on that stage at Sled Island!

  3. I just found this post because I got a Google Alert about my name – I thought I’d mention that although I’m not FROM here per se, I’ve been living in Edmonton since the autumn, so maybe I could warrant a dollar sign too?

    Either way is fine!

  4. Also, Endangered Ape is me.
