Sled Island Music Festival
When: 18-22 June 2014
Where: Calgary, Alberta, Canada
Due to last year's Alberta flooding, the Sled Island Music Festival was forced to cancel two of its four day programming. Instead of getting refunds, most pass holders opted to re-invest their ticket towards this year's festival. So, it's happening: this year festival will be taking place June 18-22.
Organizers have announced that the upcoming festival will feature guest curator, Kathleen Hanna! We love her, so it should be interesting to see who she invites.
It's still early days, so no official lineup has been announced. You can buy passes blind (and save money):
$299 Discovery Plus Pass - all the benefits of the Discovery Pass as well as priority access to all Sled Island events (skip to the front of lines!), Artist Lounge privileges, a Sled Island delegate bag and more!
All-Ages Passes are also on sale for $50, granting you access to all-ages venues including Olympic Plaza, Tubby Dog and many more.
Shaky Knees Music Festival
When: 09-11 May 2014
Where: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Shaky Knees Music Fest just announced that The Replacements have agreed to play at this year's event. Weird that they will play under Modest Mouse, who is headlining May 10th. Anyway, this will be the Minneapolis-based band's first performance in the southeast since May of 1991!
Single day tickets for presale is $84 a ticket, a three-day ticket is $150 and VIP is $475 (sold out). Again, those are the advance prices, expect the prices to go up the closer it countdown to the actual date. Since the VIP prices is three times the standard three day price, you're probably wondering what you get with it. Well, private bathroom for one thing... almost worth it, right?
