Manitoba Bands at Calgary's Sled Island Fest

Posted on

A handful of Manitoba bands have popped up in Calgary this week for one Canada's hottest music festivals. Sled Island -- which runs June 20-23 and is not, in fact on an island -- boasts an impressive line-up that includes marquee names like Feist and The hold Steady (who are fresh from a performance at the Winnipeg International Jazz Festival).

Hitting the Sled Island stages this year will be some of Manitoba's favourite indie acts, including Polaris Prize long listers Cannon Bros., post-punk trio This Hisses, new Brandonite Shotgun Jimmie, indie rock act Les Jupes, metal band Waster, and pop outfit Boats.
