Sled Island

Canada’s Sled Island Music and Arts Festival, scheduled to run from June 19-22 in downtown Calgary, has been canceled, according to a recent press release. Festival organizers have decided to call off this year’s event due to severe weather conditions and flooding.

“In light of the current emergency situation, and in line with our commitment to the safety of festival-goers and the citizens of Calgary, all remaining Sled Island festival events are cancelled,” wrote Sled Island officials.

“We have been fortunate to be able to hold two successful days of the festival and we thank attendees for their enthusiasm and flexibility. In terms of our policy on passes and tickets, we ask for patience and understanding until we are able to address this in the days to come. We realize that there will be many questions to be answered from festival-goers, artists and partners. The Sled Island office in Mission has been evacuated and we are operating with limited resources.”

“Our commitment to the safety of the citizens of Calgary remains paramount. Please take care of your friends and family who may require assistance and stay safe.”

The lineup for the canceled fest was set to feature the likes of Superchunk, Iceage, Torche, Ryan Hemsworth, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Mount Eerie, Night Marchers, BadBadNotGood, the Gaslamp Killer, Code Orange Kids, the Slabs, Sons of Bears, White Lung, Jesus and Mary Chain, Swans, Explosions in the Sky, Colin Stetson, METZ, Thee Oh Sees and Divine Fits.
