Calgary's Inaugural Badlands Stampede Music Festival Brings out Kaskade, Pretty Lights, Steve Aoki, Matt & Kim
By Gregory AdamsCalgary has its fair share of music festivals, from Sled Island to the Calgary Folk Music Festival to this past weekend's Garbage Daze event, but you can add one more to the list: the Badlands Stampede Music Festival. The inaugural edition takes place July 5 to 7, and organizers have just unveiled the list of artists that will appear onstage.

All together, 18 acts will appear over the three-day weekend event at Calgary's Canada Olympic Park. Headliners include electronic performers Afrojack, Kaskade, Pretty Lights and Steve Aoki. Other acts set to appear include pop-rock duo Matt & Kim, Adventure Club, Excision, Gareth Emery, Morgan Page, Adam K, Getter, GTA, M Machine, Mord Fustang, Nadastorm, Sultan & Ned Sheppard, the Proxxy and X Kore.

Ticket pre-sales start up on Wednesday (April 24), with regular sales starting on Friday (April 26). An early bird special has a three-day pass for the 18-and-over event going for $169, but passes will eventually be bumped up to $199. An all-access pass with bar service will go for $299.

Every single one of these artists should be ashamed to take part in such a cruel festival. Anything associated with the Stampede is a joke.

Tyler, your a joke....get on a bus and head to Thunder Bay where you can be cool. The Calgary Stampede is Canada's greatest music festival crossing all types of music. Great to see this new festival on board and we support the success of this and all music initiatives. Festivals like this make Calgary the real Canadian Music Capital. As for jokes, Tyler your negativity is a joke....take a hike fool.

All I can say is that it's about bloody time! EDM has been sweeping North America huge over the last 2 years, and sure there have been a few concerts here and there, but nothing even close to this magnitude, big ups to those who promoted this and brought it to our city during the biggest party of the year. Got my ticket see you there.
