Your favourite outdoor show this July.

The BIG SLAM is BIG Winter Classic and the Slam Festival of the Alberta River Surfing Association, united once again in 2018, to bring a BIG ol’ wave of Calgary’s best in arts and culture to the heat of summer. Think surf, skate, and sunshine; pints, pals, and the purest of rock ‘n’ roll.

The inaugural BIG SLAM went down in 2017, bringing the heat to the rooftop partio of National on 8th. We brought yoga, a serious game of S.K.A.T.E., four badass bands and one hell of a group of friends for a celebration Calgary would not soon forget.

This year it’s all going down in the Brewery Flats of Inglewood – right across from our pals at Cold Garden. A day of skate, surf, bike polo (shit ya!) and more music than you’ll know what to do with.

We’ve got food trucks, skate clinics and camps (from the 403 East Side Project), a local market (with the wonderful Market Collective), a FULL day battle of the bands with Rockin’ 4 $$, custom motorcycles, craft beer a-plenty, best friends, and even… puppies.

(yes, you read that correctly)

Your entertainment for the evening including the jams of none other than Lagwagon, Seaway, Whitey Houston, Bad Animal, Living With Lions, Sellout and Bearings!

It’s a party you can’t miss. It’s Radtown at its finest. This, is the BIG SLAM.
