How often do you get to enjoy a family friendly rock show with a full day of live music down by the river? Only during Slam! Oh and there’s a beer garden! Feel good about your ticket price going 100% into building surf culture in the city and making the dream of world class surfing in Calgary a reality.

Listen to live music all day long with your best buddies.
Featured bands include: Bombargo, Fever Feel, The Varmoors, Lashes, Sitstill!, Winky P, The Moonsnakes, Silence The Swamps, Good Grief.

Nothing makes you more thirsty and hungry than a day full of music and activities in the grass and sunshine. We were sure to seek out the best food and drinks in the city! Check out some of our fine vendors ahead of time.

Bar options available from our pals at Red Racer, Hey Y’all, Lonetree Cider, Pyur

Plus some of the best food trucks in the city: Soul Kitchen BBQ, Zilford’s Fried Chicken, One18 Empire Pop Up

Our amazing artisan market will be curated by MarketspotYYC. Check out the market page for vendor details.

Art is the cultural fabric of Slam Festival and we are stoked to present works by people who have directly influenced the lives of countless people.
