JANUARY 28TH to 30th, 2016
The big event, literally. The instant classic. BIG Winter Classic takes over the old Electric Avenue when the days are shortest and lights it up once more. Two venues, fours stages, two patios and one kick ass VIP lounge all packed into three days AND an endless imagination of craft beer collaborations and 40+ bands.
our feature bands:
Hawksley Workman, steve bays of hot hot heat, and ryan dahle of limblifter.
art pop gone mad, homegrown in calgary
artisanal surf rock, handmade in portland for degenerates, deviants and street-walkin' cheetahs
punk infused rock n' roll grooves from calgary.
you can't go surfing when it's 20 below, but no one told THEM
two-piece noise rock from montreal, so so good you'll want to join the band as their tambourine player
THE WET SECRETS
A SIX-PIECE ROCK n' roll dance band from edmonton.
gorgeous, lush, only slightly self-loathing
celebration rock so anthemic, so bombastic, so over-the-top, you'll have no idea how to be happy again without them
A PSYCH-POP OUTFIT HOMEGROWN IN CALGARY.
FREAK HEAT WAVES
Futuristic post-punk kraut from victoria.
perfect garage psych from edmonton, like a bouquet of flowers for howlin' at the moon
