Calgary’s Sled Island Music & Arts Festival returns from June 22nd to 26th, 2016 for its 10th year of thoughtful, eclectic and independent music and arts programming.
Organizers are thrilled to announce provocative musician-producer-filmmaker-performance artist Peaches as 2016 guest curator. Peaches’ curatorial selections will join over 250 additional bands, comedians, filmmakers and artists chosen by the festival in more than 35 venues across the city.
In addition to unleashing her top musical picks on the city, Peaches will perform at Flames Central on Saturday, June 25th. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 12th at 10am MST at SledIsland.com. Sled Island passes grant access (subject to capacity) and are currently on sale at SledIsland.com.
Each year, Sled Island’s guest curator helps set the direction and tone of the festival through specialized programming choices and with their presence at the event. Past curators have included Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, The Julie Ruin), John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees), Tim Hecker, Andrew W.K., Colin Newman (Wire), Fucked Up, Scott Kannberg (Pavement) and more.
Sled Island will announce its first wave of 2016 artists on February 9th, 2016.
