The world’s longest running river surf competition and festival is moving from Canoe Meadows to Stoney Nakoda Resort!


Slam is about celebrating being able to surf in the Rocky Mountains. Slam the Kan brings together people who love the outdoors and having the Rocky Mountains as our playground. This year we have brought on BassBus to curate an incredible lineup of local and travelling electronic artists to put on live performances that will leave lasting memories of Slam’s 13th year.

Come stay the night with us! We have (limited) tent spots in the festival grounds, vehicle camping in the parking lot for free or you can book a hotel. Please celebrate responsibly 🙂

DJ Nu-Mark

As a original member of the critically acclaimed, gold-selling Hip-Hop outfit, Jurassic 5, DJ Nu-Mark graced the group with precision production and cutting edge stage routines. Best known for his production on the raw anthem “What’s Golden” such creativity only hinted at his imagination since Jurassic 5’s breakup in 2006. In 2013, J5 reunited with a staggering performance at Coachella which featured a gigantic turntable designed and manipulated by Nu-Mark.

Pigeon Hole

Vancouver Island duo Pigeon Hole first forged their name in the underground hip hop culture of the mid-2000’s. From there, the drive to experiment with new forms of production saw them splinter off from rap onto the fringes of the bass music scene. True to their roots, Pigeon Hole’s sound leans heavily on nostalgic reference to their early hip hop influences; establishing themselves at the forefront of Canada’s Bass music scene with their new approach to the genre.

Rumpus, by definition, does in fact bring the noise [and the bodies] to club dancefloors and music festivals across North America, Central America and Europe with his visually captivating performance as a DJ and drummer. What began a over decade ago as drumming in indie and punk bands has evolved into a DJ and production career with 130 shows, across 9 countries and 3 continents, in 2017 alone. Not bad for a Canadian who was just looking to keep a tan year round.
Combining the power of a live drumming performance with a genre bending DJ palette, Rumpus, serves up an irresistible feast for attuned music lovers and anthem-seeking party crowds alike. Although his productions generally associate with house music, his live show ventures into many genres ranging from Ghetto Funk to Experimental Future Bass. He’s shared the stage with Skrillex, AC Slater, Diplo, GRiZ, The M Machine, Adventure Club, Mija, and more. He also recently released a tune with Canada’s Smalltown DJs on Australia’s ‘Sweat it Out’ Club Sweat label. Rumpus is set to beat his 2017 show calendar so keep your eyes peeled for this Canadian performer with a passion for travel and culture.
