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.KA.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. Craft beer a-plenty, best friends, and the jams of none other than Lagwagon, Seaway, Little Destroyer, 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.
