Folkies, circle April 11 on your Google calendars.
It’s the day the Calgary Folk Music Festival will host a 48-hour flash sale of four-day passes to the annual festival, which hasn’t been annual since 2019 due to the pandemic.
There was a variation on the festival being held over multiple weekends in 2021, with far-flung seating and limited programming.
This year’s festival will take place July 21-24 at Prince’s Island Park.
The lineup will be announced on April 27, although a few names will be revealed on April 11.
Tickets will officially go on sale April 29.
The 2019 lineup included The Mekons, Rheostatics, Asleep at the Wheel, Sheila E., Samantha Savage Smith, iskwe, Ndidi O, the Strumbellas, Colter Wall and Mdou Moctar.
Subscribers to the folk festival newsletter will receive a special discount code in their email on the morning of the presale.
