Sled Island is finally here!

Tue, Jun 21, 2016

Big Rock is excited to once again be a part of this annual alternative arts festival, taking place Wednesday through Sunday in Calgary. If you’ve never been, well, what are you waiting for?
Sled curators have a real knack for mixing the recognizable with rising stars. Headliners this year include Guided By Voices, Deafheaven, Built to Spill, Peaches, The Sonics and Tortoise.
5 days + 250 bands, + more than 35 venues, + 30,000 attendees, (plus amazing comedians, filmmakers and Big Rock beer) = A One-Of-A-Kind festival experience.

For the 3rd year in a row, we’re excited to be offering this limited edition, custom Sled Island Big Rock can at participating Sled Island venues.

Keep an eye out for the Big Rock team. We’re preforming RANDOM ACTS OF BIG ROCK throughout Sled Island. We’ll be out and about helping to elevate the moment and give away great prizes (including a chance to win BIG ROCK BEER FOR A YEAR!) Click here to see where we'll be each night.


Happy 10th Year! Congratulations to Sled Island, it’s organizers, and volunteers - marking a decade of the Calgary alternative arts festival.
