Published May 22, 2018As any current or former teen in Calgary knows, the Coca-Cola Stage at the Calgary Stampede is the place to be for alternative music in July. And this year, organizers have outdone themselves with a piping hot dose of post-hardcore by booking none other than Alexisonfire.
The long-running St. Catharines five-piece will perform at the fest on July 5, one day before the big Stampede parade. Perhaps that means George Pettit can also march in the parade?
Other acts confirmed for the Stampede include Billy Talent (July 15), Elle King (July 6) and Phantogram (July 9). The remaining Coca-Cola Stage performers will be revealed throughout the week.
UPDATE (5/23, 4:30 p.m. EDT): More performers have now been confirmed, and they include Daniel Caesar, Our Lady Peace, Lights, the Funk Hunters, DJ Shub, Too Many Zooz, and Busty and the Bass.
Over the next 3 days we will be sharing the Coca-Cola Stage lineup! We are excited to welcome @aof_official, @ElleKingMusic, @Phantogram and @BillyTalentBand! https://t.co/eAU8AX0cRl pic.twitter.com/RoH8nIPgrc— Calgary Stampede (@calgarystampede) May 22, 2018
