Calgary's Music Scene

Calgary, city of more than a million people with one of the richest and most diverse music scenes in Canada and North America. If you happen to arrive in the spring or summer, festivals blanket the city.

Catch both up and coming and legendary independent acts at Sled Island while bicycling from venue to venue, sit on Princes’ Island Park’s cool grass with 12,000 other music lovers to see the aural collage that makes up Calgary Folk Fest, then sneak away to watch the one-of-a-kind collaborative performances that are unique to Calgary.

Reggae Fest’s warm enthusiasm heats up the city with a celebration of Caribbean culture. For those with an interest in rock and roll’s bedrock, Calgary’s Bluesfest allows you to hear and feel top talent under Alberta’s legendary blue sky. And for those seeking the symphonic, Honens International Piano Competition and the Arts Commons offer the best classic Calgary has to offer.

If you’re looking to rub shoulders and raise a glass in a more intimate setting, some of the best live music venues in the country make Calgary a music lover’s paradise. See edgy, arty, indie rock at Broken City, catch roots, country and Canadiana at The Ironwood in historic Inglewood, see pulse pounding rock and roll at The Palomino, grab your choice of pint and stool and see a mid-week rock show at The Ship and Anchor, any of these things happen every week, all year round in Calgary.
