Sled Island Music & Arts Festival Announces Bartees Strange as Its 2023 Guest Curator

By: Staff –

Calgary’s Sled Island Music & Arts Festival announces genre-defying indie/alternative artist Bartees Strange as the guest curator for next year’s festival, running June 21 – 25, 2023.

His wide range of musical influences, unique style, and dedication to fostering more diverse audiences and music scenes made him the perfect candidate to take on this role, and Sled Island could not be more excited to be working with him on next year’s event.

Along with guest curator duties, Bartees Strange will perform at the #1 Royal Canadian Legion (116 7th Ave. SE) on Wednesday, June 21, 2023. Sled Island passes grant access to this show (subject to capacity). 

Each year, Sled Island’s guest curator puts their stamp on the festival through special programming choices and their presence at the event. Bartees Strange’s curatorial selections, to be announced in the coming months, will join over 200 additional bands, comedy, film, and visual art chosen by the festival in multiple venues across Calgary.

Passes go on sale this Friday, December 9 at noon MST at a special early bird rate of 20% off, and will be available at SledIsland.com, and Lukes Drug Mart (112 4th St. NE).
